Trump Strategies

Posted: January 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

Many people support Trump because they claim he will fix things since his wealth means that he is not beholden to any group, even the Republicans. There is some merit to this way of thinking. But that would be true only if Trump was really thinking. My fear is that he is simply throwing bones to his assorted groups of supporters. He has no plan or thoughtful strategies. All he has are pipe dreams (The Wall) and a desire to make himself seem great! He will probably have a few successes (like his rejection of the Republican attempt to destroy the Congressional ethics investigatory unit). But most of his efforts will fall short and destroy much of the policy gains and hopes of the American people. This is surely the case with Obamacare.
