...Hillary Clinton was not elected President.
She would have gleefully joined with Schumer and Pelosi to raise the debt ceiling in perpetuity; Obamacare would still be the law; there would be no border wall; she would have given Congress a deadline to "legalize DACA"; she would be blaming Republicans for her lack of leadership; she’d be threatening trade wars; the DOJ would still be defending the IRS that John Koskinen still heads; the FBI would be citing “lack of public interest” as an excuse not to release documents describing her disappeared emails; and the prospect for tax reform would be dim.
Is this entirely fair to Trump? No. But it is what happens when you are philosophically unmoored, proudly ignorant of process, and making it up as you go along.
I hope the President’s temporary regulatory modifications and his judgeship appointments make up for his long-term, withering destruction of small government principles.
Gary Johnson for President.
