    He can claim he kept his promise, but that the liberal elite screwed him over. This allows him to pander to his base without actually having to enforce the ridiculous travel ban.
    Wise words, Mister Merc.

    When is Trump going to calm down?

    He won't. He will just write another executive order with more nuance but which amounts to the same thing.

    The "law" bit, like.

    But "law and order" types generally don't like law, do they?
    Hell, Donald doesn't even seem to like the "order" bit!

    TBF, one of the funniest bits was on TrumpRegrets, the website which collates tweets from disgruntled Trumpers.

    Many did not realise the travel ban applied to people they actually knew and were tweeting Mr President, this doesnt mean Rosha, my son's first grade teacher? etc.

    its actually quite hard to get most ordinary Americans to get their hate on vis a vis immigrants. They marry them, employ them, are employed by them, hang out at their delis etc.

    Really? Any Western European cities in particular? Or do you mean just generally, like?

    The bloody nose his base inflicted on the 'establishment' and on Washington and on the MSM may keep them content for a while...

    I'm not sure if he fails to deliver over the longer term that they'll remain content.

    The administration seems to be testing the boundaries...

    I assume they'll either settle in and work within the boundaries over time or they'll go mad with frustration and do God only knows what...

    If the base want the latter then America and the rest of us are probably in trouble...
