At 10:24 p.m. on August 15, we posted here about President Trump's manufacturing council: "The other council members could join in the mass resignations, or Trump could just fire the rest of them and shut the council down. Either approach would be an improvement over the status quo."
At 1:14 pm on August 16, Mr. Trump tweeted: "Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!"
That was quick. One wishes it were as easy for the president to dismantle other unnecessary parts of the executive branch.
