Trump so far

Who is Trump?

Mussolini?

Mary Lincoln?

Maybe we should look at literature rather than history.

Fyodor Karamazov, as played by Lee J. Cobb?

I like it.

It fits pretty well.


Among other things, he withdrew from negotiations re TPP.

And he told the National Park Service not to tweet after it retweeted side-by-side images showing the crowd at former President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration and Trump's inauguration.

And he will renegotiate NAFTA.

When the rubber finally hits the road he will discover the senate has to OK any changes to existing treaty arrangements.

And tariffs will require congressional approval.

Has he even begun to discuss any of this with Congressional leaders?

The Republican Party leadership is pretty firmly wed to free trade.

This is what he promised to do on his first day.
