President Donald Trump must bring it together to avoid another catastrophic week

He must also placate other Republicans on whom he will depend to save his presidency in a Senate trial, after he has triggered self-inflicted crises over Syria and the G7 summit on which his party's tolerance towards its volatile leader was tested.

Every Monday During the month in which the Speaker of Parliament Nancy Pelosi initiated an impeachment investigation, it seemed that the life of an increasingly isolated president could not be much worse.

But every week, it does.

Sometimes, when his boiling rage breaks in on meetings or on Twitter, and as new political fires emerge, it looks like Trump's presidency is puzzling. Worse yet, a hollowed-out White House can not handle the incoming fire.

However, the signs that the situation will improve for Trump next week are not good news, as a new battery of Foreign Ministry officials is expected to testify before three Democratic committees in the impeachment investigation against Trump's alleged abuse of power Ukraine made statements.

G7 backsliding

The President defused a potential political nightmare over the weekend ̵
1; withholding his plans The next year's G7 summit at one of its resorts in Florida caused outrage and allegations of obvious proprietary trading after his first announcement and corruption.

In a Tweet Trump blamed the "Do Nothing Democrat / Fake News Anger" for his conversion. However, there is little doubt that his initiative has been taken to spare the GOP legislators from defending the President in a controversy he himself has made.

"People think it looks miserable," White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said "Fox News Sunday," before adding a commentary to his accident-prone situation that could be interpreted as meaning that the president was never really distanced himself from his business empire – as he had promised.

"(Trump) still sees himself in the hospitality industry," said Mulvaney.

So far, there is no indication that republican support for the president is abating due to impeachment. But his withdrawal from Syria, which is seen by many Republicans as a betrayal of America's Kurdish allies, is a test of patience for the president in his own party, perhaps more than any other incident before.

On Friday, for example, the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote a rash statement from the Washington Post, calling Trump's withdrawal from Syria a "serious strategic mistake." Some Republicans told CNN last week that they are alarmed by the mood and behavior of the president. When Mulvaney told reporters to "get over it," claiming that Ukraine's foreign policy was motivated by hopes of a political pay-out, the hubris of the White House spiraled out of control.

The President's apparent contempt for the price Republicans are paying to support Trump is confident that the GOP base he has a firm grip on is an infallible insurance policy. He has certainly rung the worship of Trump believers in two rallies over the past week.

But his withdrawal from the G7 summit may indicate that the president also understands that there may be some problems that his normally supple party does not accommodate.

New Danger from New Statements

A new parade of current and former US officials is set to head to Capitol Hill this week, raising the prospect of statements that could do more harm to the president.

You could include the best US diplomat in Ukraine, Bill Taylor, possibly on Tuesday. Following the publication of his text exchange with the former Special Representative for Ukraine, Kurt Volker, and the European Union Ambassador, Gordon Sondland, the foreign service representative has been publicized.

In the Exchange, Taylor Expresses Concern over Foreign Policy Related to political motives, he wrote that it was "crazy to withhold security support for a political campaign".

Shocking revelations in the past week seem to indicate that the president is foreign-affairs Attacked to cope with Ukraine. At the center was his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who dismantled the former Soviet Union for dirt over the potential rival of the Democrats for 2020, the adjutant claims the President is afraid of formerly most feared Vice President Joe Biden of Republicans with mitigating information Recovering revelations from official testimonies has darkened the image for Trump.

The whistleblower's report and the rough transcript of Trump's July 25 call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky seem to be just the tip of the iceberg of impeachment.

Democrats accuse Trump of abusing his power by dictating foreign policy with his prerogative to force a foreign leader to obtain negative information about a political opponent.

That's what happened, Mick Mulvaney said last week.

The former South Carolina congressman tried – and largely failed – his brazen outrage from a Thursday misfortune at the White House.
"I did not say that, people said, I said it," Mulvaney protested on "Fox News Sunday," before video evidence of his implication was shown that in Ukraine, it's actually a consideration gave.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also denied that the White House offered anything in return for maintaining military assistance while seeking political help from Ukraine.

"I never saw that in the decision-making process," he told ABC "This Week" on the news.

But GOP MP Francis Rooney, who has not ruled out a supporting impeachment, said Sunday to CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that Mulvaney could not retrace his previous comment.

] "I would say game, set, match on it," said Rooney.

Trump, after spending the weekend apparently watching the coverage of Mulvaney's appearance and teasing frenetically, is officially frustrated with his top White House CNN reported.

Perhaps Mulvaney was already on thin ice as the president's son-in-law and senior White House advisor, Jared Kushner, had tried to oust him before the impeachment drama broke out. While Kushner has made complaints about Mulvaney, an administrative official insists that Kushner did not look for a possible replacement for the chief of staff.

Mulvaney is increasingly on shaky ground with Trump, but it is by no means clear It is clear that the President will get rid of him.

The optics would not be great. This would mean another Chief of Staff in about three years.

Recent reports of discord in the White House reinforce the growing impression that Trump's advisers are no match for the task or have lost the ability to stem its wildest impulses.

On two occasions in the last week, white house moves against the president were rejected by mocking opponents.

A photo of Pelosi rebuking Trump in a private meeting with congressional leaders was quickly picked up by the spokeswoman to propose she overpowered the president.
Then, apparently, the White House leaked a letter from Trump to Recep Tayyip Erdogan in youthful language, which the Turkish president later treated with contempt.

If details from the impeachment committees on the breadth of If the evidence is confirmed, it could be difficult for the defenders of Trump to support his allegations that his call to Zelensky was "perfect" or that crimes that are inappropriate, due to this a president did not take place.

They may be forced to resort to a less politically satisfactory defense that the President's activity was wrong, but they do not deserve the charges of high crime and misdemeanors required for his removal from office.
