Mueller's Trump White House revolves around an impulsive and angry president who sends orders that often challenge, ignore, or delay subordinates.

But persons who served in the Trump White House told The Hill that they heard the Ring, and not surprisingly, the notions featured in the Special Adviser's report.
"Personally, I was at the bottom of a trump broadside because I tried to make him not do something crazy," a former White House official recalled with reserve.
A GOP strategist with links to the White House asked about the advisers' willingness to thwart the president's wishes, laughed and said, "I think it was a good thing."
The strategist claimed that Trump could "to be very impulsive and to choose", a quality that compels the people around him to save him from himself.

Regarding these details that have become public, this source added, "Me think it will bother him, it will make him madder, but at the same time it may be a private lesson that he learns that his staff was faithful by protecting him. "
It is far from clear that Trump does so sees.
The President tweeted on Friday statements in the Mueller report "are fabricated and completely untrue."
Trump added, "Take care of people who take so-called" notes "when taking notes only existed when they were needed. "

Why are you taking notes? Lawyers do not take notes. I never had a lawyer who took notes. "
McGahn, Mueller says," replied that he takes notes because he is a "real lawyer" and explained that notes are a record and not a bad thing. " McGahn was far from being the only figure close to Trump, but portrayed as challenging.

"The White House's account in the report may be negative, but it's also outdated," said long-time Trump friend Michael Caputo. "The president today has a staff from the White House, which is much more dedicated to his agenda."
Nevertheless, the president does not seem prepared to forget the past.
Some statements about him in Mueller's report "are totally bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or make me look bad)," he tweeted on Friday morning.
