Trump’s open-door Oval Office

February 24, 2017

When Omarosa Manigault, the former “Celebrity Apprentice” antihero-turned-White House adviser, needs to talk to President Donald Trump, she simply strolls into the Oval Office.

As assistant to the president and director of communications for the office of public liaison, Manigault enjoys what Trump aides refer to as walk-in privileges — meaning she doesn’t need an appointment or permission to pop her head in and consult with the leader of the free world.

Her level of easy access marks a break from the previous administration, where President Barack Obama and his gatekeeper chiefs of staff kept at bay the number of aides, even senior officials, who simply walked in without an appointment. In contrast, Trump may have set up the most accessible Oval Office in modern history.

Along with Manigault, White House officials say, the list of aides with walk-in privileges includes chief strategist Steve Bannon, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, chief of staff Reince Priebus, son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, and counselor Kellyanne Conway.

White House counsel Don McGahn has walk-in rights, as does senior communications aide Hope Hicks, and Keith Schiller, Trump’s longtime private security aide who followed him to the White House. Trump’s new national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, is also expected to be added to the informal list, according to a White House official.

    This is an interesting video explaining the Act of 1871 when our country was given over and Washington District of Columbia set up. The Shadow Government, corporate government was created and many rights we should have taken from us. When you understand this it is easy to see how and why Big Corporations have ruled our Congress and they are now faced with someone who, maybe unbeknown to him is trying to give us back what they own and rule.

    This truly is war.

    “President Barack Obama and his gatekeeper chiefs of staff kept at bay the number of aides, even senior officials, who simply walked in without an appointment.”
    When you’re liable to be in the middle of snorting a line, or some such, you wouldn’t want people just walking in indiscriminately.

    When in charge on hospital floors or being an ADON or DON or in any managing position I held the Open Door policy was my way and that door was always open.

    It is good business and makes everyone feel they have a place in the staff and nobody is favored over anyone.

    Good leadership. Trump is the best we ever had.

    This is great and the way it should be, run like a business, with Obama you never knew if he was with another man with his pants pulled down, or on all 4’s on a fart stained prayer rug, or holding a picture of ahha molesting a kid, he had so much to hide!

          You have that choice but these are about 1871 and when Washington became the Distract of Columbia and an entity unto itself not beholden to the Constitution and laws or our land. The document is there to read and see.

    President Trump has experience in running a large organization. There is a benefit to giving top associates the ability to communicate with you as needed. This is probably the most productive administration in my lifetime.

    In my years in business the most effective leaders were those with an open door policy. I tried to do the same when I was in business.

    To be sure, there were times when there was an important phone call, a meeting, or when I had to concentrate on a particular issue, but most of the time people could stroll in.

    A good leader is a person who shows that he/she values that input and counsel of subordinates.
