I've always worried what I said was a problem would end up working against Trump. He is working against a MASSIVE establishment. It would be hard to change direction even in a small country, much less one as powerful as the US.
The fact he has gotten as far as he has is practically a miracle in its own right (like him or not, it's an extremely impressive accomplishment). But often the presidents who got the most done were people who had been in DC for a long time who were able to call in a lot of favors. On the other hand, some of the ones who were outsiders were not able to get things done because no one wanted to work with them. It remains to be seen whether Trump's massive force of will (not sure about the right word here) will be able to overcome it to implement his agenda. So far things haven't seemed too promising but I wonder if he will find a way to turn it on the leadership there to get rid of all the people he doesn't like. (I guess what I don't always understand is that he seems to be getting rid of people he DOES, or did, like.) I've always felt like Paul Ryan's days were numbered under Trump, and I did speculate that he put Priebus in that position so he could fail and then dispose of him as well.
