WATCH: Maggie Haberman Describes the Dangerous Situation Trump Put His Employees In

While his online fans often claim that Donald Trump is playing chess while his opponents are playing checkers, nothing could be further from the truth. The former President is not a strategic man and it often feels like he is just trying to get to the next moment. 

Trump's complete lack of awareness can often get those people around him in trouble, and that isn't just in politics. During a recent interview on CNN, Maggie Haberman described the terrible position Donald Trump put his Mar-a-Lago staffers in. 

The New York Times reporter was discussing the case of Brian Butler, a former Mar-a-Lago staffer has spoken about being ordered to move boxes of classified documents onto an airplane before Trump flew off. 

Haberman remarked, "Brian Butler, as far as I know, does not have a security clearance. and so a lot of people were around these documents who don't have security clearances."

The reporter continued, "He's a central witness. He's describing a scenario where the former president put a lot of his employees, not just people who worked at Mar-a-Lago to people who worked for him and his post-presidential life... in a dangerous situation because they are handling boxes that had classified material."
