Title: Trump has reportedly 'retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment' after mounting midterm losses

In one week, President Trump has transformed from a nonstop campaign-rally machine to a nearly invisible figure communicating mostly by tweet. Trump returned late Sunday from a 43-hour trip to Paris, where he sat out some big events and clashed with allies, and on Monday he ended his public day at 10:03 a.m., skipping the Veterans Day trip to Arlington National Cemetery every president since at least John F. Kennedy has made to lay a ceremonial wreath. On Tuesday, Trump's only public appearance was a brief showing at a Diwali ceremony, and he had Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meet with visiting King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Trump sent Vice President Mike Pence to the Asia Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) summit typically attended by presidents, potentially offending Asian leaders; canceled a trip to Colombia; and opted not to visit the U.S. troops he sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to protect a "caravan" he seems to have forgotten about. Maybe Trump is just tired, but White House officials and Trump allies say he's in a particularly sour mood amid a string of late Democratic victories in areas where he campaigned, looming investigations by House Democrats, expected indictments from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and bad press from his France trip.

"Trump has retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment," the Los Angeles Times reports, citing multiple administration sources. "Behind the scenes, they say, the president has lashed out at several aides," sketching "a picture of a brooding president 'trying to decide who to blame' for Republicans' election losses, even as he publicly and implausibly continues to claim victory."

"It's like an episode of Maury," one former Trump aide told Politico. "The only thing that's missing is a paternity test." You can read more about Trump's "five days of fury" at The Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, and Politico has more on the mood in the White House. Peter Weber

If true, it wouldn't be surprising. For him, being president is a job he never needed to take. He's rich enough already. While he does enjoy being in control, he's not in it for attention. And being unappreciated for the accomplishments he's made (and if the economic reports are accurate, he has made accomplishments) would certainly be a downer for even more virtuous and humble people than Trump.

There is an argument to be made that the midterms were a draw, at least if the Florida and Arizona vote counts go R. But I wouldn't blame him for being a bit depressed at the realization that people would prefer to have a politician in office who says nice things and tells them what they want to hear rather than someone who is more authentic and gets results done like Trump has done. The D's want to illegally throw open the borders and invite millions of non-English speaking people to just walk into the country unchecked just so they can win votes.

That would depress me too, if I were prez. I'd be like, "Why the hell am I bothering to try to help this country?"

In fact, it's safe to say Trump has lasted longer than I would have lasted.

The nerve. He quit non-stop campaigning just because the election is over and the GOP held the Senate and will nominate and approve conserviative justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who wioll be there for the next twenty years or so.

In the meantime, the White House is busy storing popcorn to munch on while watch the Dem dinosaurs and millenials destroy each other.

are you saying they didn't listen to him. He obviously cannot pick an audience and thinks he can change minds. Never mind, your one true yellow haired god has fallen off his pedestal

Nuts.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

I just love these articles that use "anonymous sources".

Translated: The article is total insinuation bullschitt and/or wishful thinking by the tards in the TDS movement.
