White House insiders say that Trump is in a bad place and angry that things are not going well.

According to Axios, White House insiders say that President Donald Trump senses his administration is unraveling, and he is not dealing well with the chaotic atmosphere.

The latest revelation -- White House Communications Director Hope Hicks' eventual departure -- came just yesterday.

Hope Hicks leaving is obviously a huge blow to him. Every time he reads about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his head explodes. The staff is just trying to ride out the storm.

Everywhere you look inside this White House, top officials are fighting, fomenting, feuding or fleeing, insiders say in conversations with us.

Inside the White House, per Axios:

  • White House Chief of Staff John Kelly cracked down on Jared Kushner, stripping his top security clearance, and watching anonymous aides leak about and trash him, while offering no public defense of the president’s son-in-law.
  • Economic adviser Gary Cohn is at war with trade policy adviser Peter Navarro.
  • Trump is at war with Attorney General Sessions. ... N.Y. Times lead story: "Trump Tears Into Sessions Over Russia Investigation." ... WashPost: "Behind the scenes, Trump has derisively referred to Sessions as 'Mr. Magoo,' a cartoon character who is elderly, myopic and bumbling."
  • Intelligence chiefs use every chance possible to contradict the commander-in-chief on Russia.
