Very possibly IMO. He has let Paul Ryan and (to a lesser degree McConnell) take over the presidency. Globalists, insiders, and naturally, liberal Dems are delighted. And laughing at him, although he doesn't appear to understand this. He appears to be allowing Ryan to lead him around with an invisible ring in his nose. Ryan & McConnell appear to have taken his measure, saw that the prez wants, above all, to be loved, and are controlling him accordingly. Ryan KNOWS the base that got Trump elected is conservative, and that base dislikes Ryan's policies intensely. And has disliked Ryan's liberalism long before Trump's campaign ever began.
First I will say this. Conservatives, and others will be grateful for one main thing. Trump defeated Hillary. We won't lose sight of that. But he has shocked his voter base, and many will not vote for him again, if this betrayal continues.
Michael Savage has asked who Trump supporters think is/are Trump's biggest problem. Answer: Ryan and McConnell.
Limbaugh thinks Trump voters will never desert him. RL is wrong. And the desertion will be almost total if Trump caves on Supreme Court nominee no. 2. The Dems are worried about the NEXT pick, not this one. And McConnell is, as I type, considering a Dem proposal that is about pick no. 2. And it stinks.
Goes something like this. Dems in Senate know Gorsuch will go through. So they reportedly have presented this deal to McConnell. Promise to not use the nuclear option on pick no. 2, and they will "allow" Gorsuch to go through. McConnell (a shyster extradordinaire in my opinion) is said to be considering this. When most Republicans are saying "go nuclear on both picks".
If Trump picks another Kennedy, for instance on his second nomination, you may rest assured the fix is in, and conservatives will not, I am convinced, give him 2nd term. Kennedy, btw, has often been reported to best buds with Laurence Tribe.
