No surprise here….
All the Trump bullshit to get elected is just THAT…
Trump & Co. has to deal with Congress and the Courts and an energized Democratic base….
Initially, Trump sought to follow ‘take no prisoners ‘ Steve Bannon’….THAT worked on the campaign trail….
But That has run him into a brick wall with the courts and lawmakers and most other things…They are their OWN power centers…
He IS the President…(He is learning on the job)
You simply cannot go Rogue and operate like a businessman who just watches TV and Conservative Cable News programs.
Trump will move to a better place…
Failure to do so will cut short his time living in new house…
The office makes the man…
The Man does NOT make the office…
Can his base follow along?
Do they abandon him?
President Trump is abandoning a number of his key campaign promises on economic policy, adopting instead many of the centrist positions he railed against while campaigning as a populist.
Trump will not label China a “currency manipulator,” he told the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, despite a campaign pledge that he would apply the label on his first day in office. He also said he was open to reappointing Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet L. Yellen after saying last year that the central banker should be “ashamed” of what she was doing to the country.
And he embraced the Export-Import Bank, a government agency that he mocked last year and that has long been despised by conservatives who labeled it crony capitalism.
The statements represent a move toward the economic policies of more centrist Republicans and even at times align with the approach of former president Barack Obama. Should he follow through on the newly articulated positions, it would suggest that the candidate who ran as the ultimate outsider is increasingly adopting a more moderate economic agenda.
The reversals come amid a period of rapid evolution for Trump on both foreign and domestic issues….
