Gabriel Sherman: “Trump advisers agree on what he needs to do differently at the next debate… But Republicans are resigned to the fact that Trump is unlikely––or unwilling––to course-correct.
Said one Republican: “Trump thinks he won. He didn’t. But does anyone have the balls to tell him that? No. They’d be fired.”
“Trump doesn’t accept the consensus that the debate was a disaster because… he was unabashedly himself.”
Said the source: “The thing about the debate is people got to see why no one that has any integrity can work for Trump. This is what Trump is like in the Oval Office every day. It’s why John Kelly left. It’s why Jim Mattis quit. Trump doesn’t let anyone else speak. He really doesn’t care what you have to say. He demeans people. He talks over them. And everyone around him thinks it’s getting worse.”
