Trump says ‘I love conflict’ after Conway gets popped for lawbreaking: ‘I like watching it, I like seeing it’
President Donald Trump on Tuesday said that he loved the conflicts in the White House after staffer Kellyanne Conway was found to have violated the Hatch Act by using federal resources to support Republican candidates.
At a press conference with Sweden Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Trump called on a reporter from the Daily Caller, who asked whether the president expected other people to leave the White House.
Trump, however, refused to say whether he expected other staffers to quit or be fired.
“The White House has tremendous energy, tremendous spirit, it is a great place to be working,” he insisted. “Many, many people want every single job. [People say], oh gee, maybe people don’t want to work for Trump. Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office. They all want a piece of the West Wing.”
“I like conflict,” the president added. “And I certainly have that and then I make a decision. But I like watching it, I like seeing it.”
