Trump Jr.: Group Trump Trusts ‘Much Smaller’ After Op-Ed, Woodward Book

September 11, 2018 11:54 a.m.

Donald Trump Jr. bemoaned the “much smaller” group of aides his father can trust after the publishing of the anonymous New York Time op-ed and Bob Woodward’s White House memoir during an interview aired Tuesday on ABC.

“I think there are people in there that he can trust, it’s just — it’s a much smaller group than I would like it to be,” Trump Jr. said. “It would be easier to get things done if you’re able to fully trust everyone around you. I think that’s a shame.”

“Listen, I think you’re subverting the will of the people,” he continued. “I mean, to try to control the presidency while not the president. You have millions and millions of Americans who voted for this.”

Amid the flood of negative insider accounts about his administration, Trump has reportedly complained that he can only trust his children.
