I wonder if Trump does all the work himself when he presents something to the people. You'd think with a job like that he would have teams that would put the majority of it together for him. I wonder how much time Trump has to go over all of the information in every presentation with a fine tooth comb? If mistakes are made by the team, should Trump take the blame for them? If Trump publically apologizes while pointing out it was the team who screwed up, would that be accepted by those who were upset?
I think we all know the negative reaction that would still follow and who the blame would go to regardless.
He has advisors and a cabinet but he's President so he probably has to approve most things that happen.
Sure, but assuming the team had whatever info they felt they needed, even if Trump asked, 'are you sure all these area's will be impacted', the obvious answer from them would be, 'yes'. Should Trump trust his team or assume they are always wrong? Based on something like severe weather, it's not like he would have been able to clearly tell they might be wrong. While I'm not saying it wouldn't be Trumps fault in anyway, since like you said, he would have to approve it, the overwhelming majority would be because of the team, and so Trump should apologize and have all the blame publically put on him?
Like I said, even if he was honest and apologized yet pointed out it was due to mistakes the team made, the people who were upset would just blame Trump anyway, plus paint him in a negative light for trying to put the onus on the team, when in reality, it was the majority their fault.
This is quite possibly why he wouldn't bother apologizing, since he's getting blamed no matter what he does, so he might as well publically support his team instead of throwing them under the bus. I'm sure behind closed doors that team would have gotten an earful though to make sure it doesn't happen again. Yes it still looks bad on the administration, but not as bad as pointing out some people within it made some mistakes. Trump is a constant target anyway, so he might as well just take another punch to save face for that team.
