A month of turmoil, personnel purges and abrupt policy changes by a president determined more than ever to follow his impulses has left the White House in a dangerous moment of global transition.
By becoming faithful to its anti-kidnapping exterior, the president is implementing the purest form of Trumpism he has tried so far.
However, his experiment with bowel-level governance carries significant risks of unpredictable outcomes, before trials such as his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un or work to create a post-ISIS settlement in Syria.
While performing his symphony of chaos at home, the President lost seven people within his administration or inner circle in just one month, some of whom were fired by tweet.  He has exchanged restrictive influences such as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson or traditionalists such as national security adviser HR McMaster with replacements such as Mike Pompeo and John Bolton who reflect their own aggressiveness on stincts or who lavished it on television.
But it is their tendency to do politics on an ad hoc basis, on issues on which millions of lives could depend, which may represent Trump's most significant turn.
For example, on Thursday, Trump declared that the USA. UU they will leave Syria "very soon", provoking a day of commotion and contradictions within their own national security team.
"We are still trying to understand what he meant about Syria yesterday," a senior administration official told CNN's Jim Acosta on Friday.
The episode was a fitting metaphor for Trump's government style. Normally, a president would only make such statements after weeks of briefings and meetings, after carefully studying policy documents that provide a deep understanding of the battlefield and a set of options on a difficult topic.
But with Trump, the process is reversed: instinct and impulse drive their actions, after an apparent foresight or evaluation of the unpleasant consequences that usually accompany any serious presidential decision.
It's a pattern that has been repeated over and over again in recent weeks, from Trump's sudden reflex decision to come face to face with Kim, to his demand for tariffs on steel and aluminum imports that shook US allies UU
In each case, Trump's sudden movement caused his aides to struggle to keep up and understand his strategy, as it was. It is also a style of government that puts nerves at home and brings considerable risks, however Trump's vote may be true as a candidate to keep everyone guessing.
Trump's sudden nomination last week from his personal White House physician Ronny Jackson to direct the Veterans Affairs Administration adjusted to the trend, showing a president more interested in the news and affinity with a candidate than in the concern for politics in depth.
Jackson may have impressed Trump with his brave press conference for the President's health, and is loved by many current and former White House officials, but has no experience in running a major organization and the VA is one of the most expansive and problematic medical bureaucracies in the world.
The gaps outside Trump's political circle are reflected in his legal war council, after the recent departure of his lawyer John Dowd and a fight to attract a front-line lawyer to strengthen his team. [1 9659002] While Robert Mueller delves deeper into his business and political affairs, Trump's apparent desire to testify personally before the special lawyer reflects his confidence in his own instincts and his impatience for the council despite the risks, reflecting his newfound focus of national and international policy.
And those who fear that the President's mood and arrogance will drive his actions more and more are worried that the departure of one of his most trusted friends and collaborators, Hope Hicks, could make him even more volatile.
Programmer in chief
The circus that surrounds Trump has often been compared to a reality show.
But increasingly, the administration looks like a cable television channel, with Trump as the main programmer and presenter, making news, breaking it and abandoning a traditional policy process for a body of conservative commentators.
Bolton spent months auditioning for his new role on Fox News. And his new top economic adviser Larry Kudlow has been an open voice for CNBC for years.
Such a show infuriates critics who see the government as a serious business, full of risks and defined by proven processes by generations of bureaucrats and the tradition of the west wing. 19659002] But there is a chasm between the political class in Washington and the Trump supporters.
"This whole idea that President Trump is somehow chaotic and unique because he has his own strong point of view and is trying to push his administration in the way he sees fit, is really the way where presidents operate, "Matt Schlapp, president of the American Conservative Union, told Fox News on Sunday.
With the economy roaring, with unemployment below 5%, after the passage of a large tax reduction and with his cabinet lieutenants dismantling the Obama era regulations despite the scandals that revolve around him , Trump's base remains solid, giving it latitude for its currently unorthodox approach.  Trump demonstrated how well he understands this during a demonstration in Ohio on Thursday, embracing a revival of ABC's "Roseanne," claiming that the success of the program is rooted in giving voice to working-class white families who are propelling his movement .
