TRUMP TAKES HIS POPULIST POWER AWAY FROM REPUBLICANS - SHOWS THEM HE'S THE BOSS
You have to hand it to Donald. He is a deal maker and he's got balls...and he's learning how to play the power game in DC. And if the Republicans are going to screw up a good thing and not pass his agenda, then by golly, Trump can take his populist following of millions of Americans and make deals with the Democrats. He just did so in a small way by cozying up to Pelosi and Schumer, and giving them a few things that they wanted...reassurance to the DACA people that they weren't going to b thrown out of the USA, a raise to the debt ceiling, and some more time to work on a budget. Small things, but the significance is that Trump went directly against Ryan and McConnell, both whom have proven to be either incompetent or obstructing Trumps agenda. This was Trumps message to them without him having to say it - You get your act together, or I can take my populist crowd over here and make deals all day long without you.
