Donald Trump is reportedly ready to fire several high-ranking staffers and cabinet members before the end of the year, the most notable being Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. If Nielsen is fired, that could also likely lead to the dismissal or the resignation of Chief of Staff John Kelly who handpicked Nielsen for that job. Things are getting bad in the Trump administration, and they look like they are about to get so much worse, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.
