Pointless Distractions Undermine Worthy Goals

President Trump is committed to pursuing so many worthy goals – tax reform, border security, economic growth, choice in education, strengthening the military – that it’s a shame that he allows himself to be distracted by dubious concerns and trivial issues.

Four days after his well-received speech to Congress, he shifted attention to an unsupported claim that Barack Obama tapped the Trump Tower phones. If there is any substance to this charge, it should have been exposed by law enforcement officials or Congressional investigators, not by the president himself in a Saturday morning twitter storm.

In his speech to Congress, Trump made an encouraging call for bi-partisan cooperation, but attacking his still-popular predecessor as “bad or sick” can hardly help the cause of consensus or reform. The White House needs a major staff shake-up to refocus the administration on changes that matter to the American people, rather than re-fighting campaign battles that were settled by Trump’s November victory.
