After a rocky start to his administration during which people questioned if he would ever develop a political outlook to define his Presidency, Donald Trump finally nailed it today when he said he planned to ‘let things fail’ with regard to Obamacare.
Observers believe this is not an isolated response to the Republican failure to act upon 7 years of rhetoric, but signals the Chief Executive finding his groove, just as FDR did when he became known for big bold programs that brought America out of the Depression and changed the calculus in World War Two.
“Trump finally has a principle animating his approach, that can be best summed up as ‘sit back, do nothing, and let it fail’ in simple terms.”
In formulating his governing philosophy, Trump is believed to have drawn strongly on his experience in the business world, where he proved highly adept at letting things fail.
“Now that he has defined his ethos, I suspect he will do very well in living up to it.”
