He believes in public service, as a servant of the people – and he expects the exact same commitment from members of his government and, of course, his closest aides.
The President has made it clear times without number that anyone who will not, cannot, or does not pull his weight – nor meet these exacting standards – is not welcome in his administration. A number of ranking officials have been shown the way out at various times simply on account of this.
Similarly, he believes in loyalty and truthfulness. Should any individuals be found to be serving themselves and not the people, then it is right and proper to call them out. But this must be done on the basis of evidence and proof – not on conjecture.
It is therefore disappointing to hear a politician call out unnamed individuals in the administration and accuse them of unnamed transgressions.
If this politician has evidence – then he should make public their identities as well as his proof. Innuendo is not proof.
Similarly, simply claiming that the COVID-19 Palliative Measures Committee is not functioning as it should is not the same as presenting proof for such a claim.
No one replaces an institutional government body in the midst of the global pandemic without clear and irrefutable evidence that it needs replacing.
A press briefing from a discontented politician is rarely the source of such evidence.
