President Trump is vowing to ‘weed out’ administration officials he does not trust to carry out his ‘America first’ agenda.

He made the comment Thursday, adding, he agrees with everything the First Lady said during her interview earlier this week.

While President Trump said there are some members of his administration he does not trust, he explained the problem was much worse when he first became president.

He blamed the issue on being a political outsider, who is new to Washington, D.C.

The president did not give an example of who he was unhappy with, but singled out Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and outgoing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley as examples of the great people in his administration.
