Trump Makes a Crooked Contract That Could Cost Him the Presidency

By

Conservative voters who expected President Trump to be a straight-as-an-arrow Republican, a Boy Scout, as it were, just got a rude wake-up call.

Trump’s a maverick, no two ways about it. More than that, he’s a maverick businessman, not a politician.

What that means in terms of his White House Administration is that Trump will do anything necessary, and we mean anything, to get done the job that he feels needs to be done.

Media fallout, Republican criticism and voters’ hurt feelings be damned.

Zerohedge reports on Trump’s “crooked” move as he made a hard turn LEFT:

Moments ago the Senate, as expected, passed the debt ceiling, government funding, hurricane aid deal, cobbled between Trump and the Democrats, to howls of protest from the GOP.

MAJORITY OF U.S. SENATE VOTES TO APPROVE $15.25 BILLION IN DISASTER AID, MEASURES TO FUND GOVT AND RAISE DEBT LIMIT THROUGH DEC. 8

As a result, the debt limit will be suspended until December 8 and and fund govt through Dec. 8; it also provides $15.25b in disaster funding for hurricane assistance. A vote in the House is expected tomorrow (or perhaps today), where the bill will also pass: it will be interesting which Republicans vote against the Trump/Democratic proposal.

Now, the problem for Trump is that in business, the ends (so long as they’re positive and successful) always justify the means.

Not so in politics.

While Trump’s wayward dealing with the Democrats might indeed get the job at hand done, come reelection time in 2020, you can bet his Republican detractors will bring up this “betrayal.” And it could cost Trump the presidency.
