Trump proudly called himself the negotiator-in-chief but couldn’t even close a deal in the House of Representatives which is controlled by his own party.
What kind of deal maker is Trump really?
A losing one. So far.
Have you heard of these deals?
Trump Steaks, Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Suits, Trump fragrances, Trump board game, Trump ghostwritten books, Trump energy drink, Trump eyeglasses and Trump chocolate bars.
These are all Trump deals.
Maybe Trump is over-rated?
Repealing Obamacare should be essier from the budgetary point of view because AHCA should save America tax payers nearly one trillion dollar over a decade. Tax reform, defense budget and infrastructure policies require debt increase to pass.
The bill which ultimately would reduce national debt didn’t get to pass, what chance do the ones requiring more America tax money have over the objection of the Freedom Caucus?
Not a lot.
Trump might know how to close a deal on an apartment building but he probably knows nothing about heardcare, influence of the special interest groups, what it takes to control various factions in the Republican Party and how to deal with the opposition from the Democrat Party.
Trump still has a long way to go and a steep learning curve to climb.
