So yet again President Donald Trump is making massive waves. Well not him directly, but today The State Department’s entire senior administrative team just resigned according to https://www.washingtonpost.com/terms-of-service/2011/11/18/gIQAldiYiN_story.html

They state "“It’s the single biggest simultaneous departure of institutional memory that anyone can remember, and that’s incredibly difficult to replicate,” said David Wade, who served as State Department chief of staff under Secretary of State John Kerry. “Department expertise in security, management, administrative and consular positions in particular are very difficult to replicate and particularly difficult to find in the private sector.”

For those of you who don't know, "The primary goal of the Secretary of State and the U.S. Department of State is to shape a freer, more secure, and more prosperous world through formulating and implementing the President's foreign policy, while supporting and protecting American interests abroad", according to https://careers.state.gov/learn/what-we-do.

It is not 100 percent confirmed if these senior administrators was force to leave, but referring to http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/state-department-officials-resign-rex-tillerson-visit-article-1.2956338 "CNN reported that the foursome was fired — and didn’t resign — by the Trump administration as part of an effort, officials said, meant to 'clean house'." It would seem to make the most sense that they was fired. This is Donald Trump we talking about. Firing people was his specialty for years when he was on "The Apprentice". Plus nobody in their right mind would just up and quit a prestigious government position like that.

As reported by http://www.cnbc.com/2017/01/26/several-senior-diplomats-resign-as-trump-administration-takes-shape.html

"Among those whom Reuters has confirmed are leaving, are Gregory Starr, Assistant Secretary for State for Diplomatic Security and Michele Bond, Assistant Secretary for Consular Affairs.Some of those asked to leave by Friday at 5 p.m. were prepared to stay on "and do their jobs" until replacements were confirmed, said one of the U.S. officials."

If they was not forced to resign, some believe it was because of the possible appointment of the new Secretary Of State. As stated by http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/state-department-officials-resign-rex-tillerson-visit-article-1.2956338 "President-elect Donald Trump is expected to name Tillerson as his nominee for Secretary Of State today. President-elect Donald Trump, in a statement early this morning, announced his intention to nominate ExxonMobil chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson to lead the State Department and become the country's top diplomat." He has to be approved by the Senate before his appointment is complete.

It is a new era in politics. President Trump is about to show people what one man can do sitting down sending Tweets from his phone. It is impossible for him to reply to everybody, but I am sure he reads a good number of the replies, and he knows where the issues in America reside. It's understandable how some people would be scared, but you would be a fool if you think he did not care. It wont be long before all the people who are hated on him originally, are suddenly praising him for his brass tatics and swift action. Sure he may hurts some people's feelings, but we live in a time when most folk would rather be lied to, instead of giving the truth.
