In Feburary, we were celebrating the deportation of Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, huzzahing over executive orders, and eagerly awaiting the creation of deportation squads. We were expecting millions of illegal aliens to be rounded up and swiftly deported.
In December, there is no Great Wall of Trump, but the Republican Congress is poised to deliver a massive corporate tax cut. Deportations are down from a year ago. The trade deficit is higher. We have imposed sanctions on Russia. Steve Bannon is gone. President Trump’s approval rating has crashed to 32 percent, but it isn’t because he has implemented our policies.
Hmm. It’s almost like President Trump has gained nothing from going the moderate route since April, but has suffered a decline in the polls after disappointing his base.
