Axios: Source says President Trump thinks former aide Rob Porter is ‘sick’

President Trump spoke highly about White House aide Rob Porter after allegations of sexual abuse surfaced from his two-ex wives. Porter has since resigned. 

But according to Axios, Trump is saying something completely different behind closed doors. 

Sources reportedly told the news organization that the President finds him “sick” and believes the wives accusations.
 
Axios added that one source said Trump thinks men who beat their wives can’t be reformed and will never change.

Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski (C) says hello to reporters as he and White House advisors Sebastian Gorka (from L), Omarosa Manigault and Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci accompany President Trump for an event celebrating veterans at AMVETS Post 44 in Struthers, Ohio, U.S., July 25, 2017. Jonathan Ernst: “The most visible person in any White House is naturally the President, followed by the press secretary. But there are also the staff who support them, any one of whom might suddenly jump into public view and be national news for a day or two. For those of us covering the President Trump administration, there seem to be more compelling figures in the West Wing than ever before. It’s crucial to know who’s who and why they’re important. When I raised my camera and back-pedalled ahead of the group to take this image Lewandowski gave me a hello and pointed right into the lens. I liked the photo, but had no idea it would go a little bit viral, especially since Scaramucci, who was the biggest mover and shaker that week, was hidden back in the pack. But I guess the image catches a glimpse of what it’s like to be a West Wing staffer on the road.”REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File photo SEARCH “POY STORY” FOR THIS STORY.
