One of the biggest claims made by Donald Trump during his presidency was that he had surrounded himself with “the best people.” However, this claim has been contradicted by numerous legal issues faced by his associates as well as high employee turnover rates within White House walls.

For instance, Michael Cohen- his attorney, and Paul Manafort-his campaign chairman were indicted or convicted hence raising questions about the kind of person Trump is and those he loves to hang around with. Such controversies have helped strengthen critics’ voices against Trump thus adding to his divisiveness.

The Republican Stand On Trump Seems To Be Changing
