Trump: "Everybody Wants To Work In The White House"


President Trump answered a question about the high turnover rate for staff in his White House, at a joint press conference with the Swedish PM on Tuesday.

"Everybody wants to work in the White House," the president said. "They all want a piece of that Oval Office."

QUESTION: You would like to see some change in the people around you. Does that include your Attorney General Jeff Sessions or either of your cabinet secretaries?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: No, I don't really want to talk about that. I just said that the White House has tremendous energy. It has tremendous spirit. It is a great place to be working. Many, many, people want every single job.

I read where, oh, gee, maybe people don't want to work for Trump -- and, believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office. They want a piece of the West Wing. And not only in terms of it looks great on their resume, it's just a great place to work. It's got tremendous energy. It's tough.

I like conflict. I like having two people with different points of view, and I certainly have that. And then I make a decision. But I like watching it. I like seeing it, and I think it's the best way to go. I like different points of view. But the White House has a tremendous energy and we have tremendous talent.

Yes, they'll be people -- I'm not going to be specific -- but there will be people that change -- they always change. Sometimes they want to go out and do something else but they all want to be in the White House. So many people want to come in. I have a choice of anybody. I could take any position in the White House and I'll have a choice of the 10 top people having to do with that position. Everybody wants to be there. And they love this White House because we have energy like rarely before, OK,<.BLOCKQUOTE>
