Throw a few more logs on Trump's raging fire of incompetence

Trump ordered 15,000 new border and immigration officers — but got thousands of vacancies instead.  (Los Angeles Times, 1/27/2019)
Two years after President Trump signed orders to hire 15,000 new border agents and immigration officers, the administration has spent tens of millions of dollars in the effort — but has thousands more vacancies than when it began. 
In a sign of the difficulties, Customs and Border Protection allocated $60.7 million to Accenture Federal Services, a management consulting firm, as part of a $297-million contract to recruit, vet and hire 7,500 border officers over five years, but the company has produced only 33 new hires so far.
