Trump’s whiplash weekend heightens questions over leadership

( CNN) In the cover of seventy-two hours, President Donald Trump has fumed and shelled a state honcho with a predilection for taxpayer-funded private spurts, boasted about a recuperation process in Puerto Rico that births little similarity to actuality on the ground, flogged the mayor of the island’s capital city for cross-examine the federal reply, and considered a golf tournament from the “commissioner’s suite” at a country club that costs $500,000 to join.

As Trump settled into another weekend at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, the questions about its terms of reference as chairwoman grew louder. Prevalent tolerating on Puerto Rico has been unmatched by the rhetoric received from the White House, where the convalescence attempt is described in far rosier terms.
