President Donald Trump rebutted media accusations that chaos has engulfed the White House in recent days and revealed that there are still some staffers he would like to get rid of, in a Tuesday morning tweet.

The president’s tweet follows several staff turnover announcements including key aides to his son-in-law Jared Kushner and his communications director Hope Hicks. The President frequently embraces periods in which there is high staff turnover to tout his difference from previous presidents and business experience.

Trump famously declared in February 2017 that the White House is “is running like a fine-tuned machine” just days after his former national security advisor Mike Flynn was fired. Trump recently poked fun at this statement at the Gridiron dinner saying Saturday “It’s been really another calm week at the White House. We finally have it running like a fine-tuned machine. It’s fine-tuned. It’s a beautiful piece of work.”
