Despite President Trump’s reassurances that his White House is not in chaos, the departures of top aides and key members of his administration paint a very different picture.

As of March 7, there was turnover in 43% of the Trump White House’s top-level positions in just 13 months, according to the research of Dr. Kathryn Dunn Tenpas, from the Brookings Institution and the White House Transition Project.
