After a crazy 24 hours, sources close to President Trump say he is in a bad place — mad as hell about the internal chaos and the sense that things are unraveling.

The big picture: Hope Hicks leaving is obviously a huge blow to him. Every time he reads about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his head explodes. The staff is just trying to ride out the storm.

The Republican National Committee has been paying the private security firm owned by President Trump's former bodyguard and longtime confidant, Keith Schiller, $15,000 a month, CNBC first reported and Axios has confirmed.

The details: Schiller left the White House last year after working with Trump for almost 20 years. An RNC official told Axios the firm has been retained to provide security consultation for the RNC 2020 convention site selection process. If that rate of payment keeps up, Schiller will have made more than $500,000 by the time of the convention.
