Trump Alone

It's been a wild week for Donald Trump, for his once-imperturbable voter base, and for Democrats suffering from THUD and/or Hillary Really Won the Election Syndrome. Out of the blue, the president played nice with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on DACA, sent mixed messages about his wall, signed the Charlottesville Resolution, and directed his economic adviser Gary Cohn to host a meeting of the world’s top climate ministers. Prominent conservatives, including James Delingpole and Milo Yiannopoulos, are beside themselves.  Breitbart has nicknamed the president "Amnesty Don." New Republic editor Brian Beutler has proved prescient: Trump's primary loyalty is to himself.
