White House says Obama appointee ‘betrayed’ state department with letter instructing officials not to enforce president’s executive order.
Donald Trump has fired the acting US attorney general after she told justice department lawyers not to defend his executive order banning entry for people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The White House said on Monday that Sally Yates had “betrayed” the department by refusing to enforce a legal order that was “designed to protect the citizens of the United States”.
Trump drafted in Dana Boente, US attorney for the eastern district of Virginia, to replace Yates as acting attorney general. The president’s official appointee, anti-immigration hardliner Senator Jeff Sessions, is yet to be confirmed by the Senate.
As the country’s top law enforcement official, Yates, who was appointed by Barack Obama, had control over the justice department’s immigration litigation office, which has handled the federal complaints filed against Trump’s order since his bombshell policy was announced on Friday.

When Adolf Hitler took over the Government in Berlin, not only did he sacked all the officials of the previous Weimar republic. He also intimidated and eventually persecuted all who refused to obey orders. Next he branded all opposition to be “enemies of German values:”, and enforces a one party Fascist state.
I do not know if Donald Trump knows much about how the Nazis took over Germany. But my best guess is that his closed advisors, who have no clue about how to run a government, would like Trump to have all powers in his hand.
I can not think of a better Bible verse, that fits perfect to Trump and his advisors in the Oval Office. I hope they will read this:
2 Timothy 3
But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people
The Bible explains there will be terrible times, just before the end of the age. When Jesus the Messiah is about to return. Unequally terrible to what has taken place since the creation.
because those will be days of distress unequalled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now – and never to be equalled again.
Trump is a perfect chaos pilot. Just by opening his mouth, he will defame, insult or bully a few people. Welcome to the age of the rising of the last and final antichrist. Do not end up defending the wrong team, but remain faithful to the Messiah.
