What we’re learning, day by day, is there’s no magic to Trump. When he does things people hate, he becomes unpopular. When he backs bad legislation and bad processes, the bills fail. When he doesn’t prioritize staffing his government, his government doesn’t get staffed. When he doesn’t choose aides who know how to manage a presidency, his presidency careens forward unmanaged. When he doesn’t spend time learning about the policies he backs, he’s unable to persuade the American people of their benefits. When he doesn’t build deep relationships with the legislators in his party, he proves unable to corral them.

Trump has not found a shortcut for American politics. To succeed at a hard job, he has to work hard in ways and at tasks that he has, thus far, shown little aptitude for or interest in.

Trump himself may never be a normal president, but the system he leads remains more normal than many expected. While it's easy to imagine scenarios where that ceases to be true — a terrorist attack, for instance — the fact remains that so far, incompetence, not autocracy or even ruthless efficacy, has defined the Trump administration. He has achieved much less than his predecessors at this point in their presidencies, and he has done so at great cost to his own popularity. Trump is struggling with the same veto points and limitations that frustrate all presidents, but he is further held back by his own inexperience and undisciplined approach.

It is possible Trump will yet recover. But it is also possible he’ll enter a failure loop, where his unpopularity and his scandals and his failed initiatives and his poor management lead to more public anger and more aggressive congressional investigation and more failed initiatives and more fracturing and infighting among his staff. The 2018 elections are a long way away, but Trump is off to a very bad start.

“Leaking and (butt) covering”

Yeah…nice visual…

I agree with most of this video, except for the part about the travel ban being unconstitutional. The United States Code permits the president wide powers in dictating immigration policy. Trump can ban any nationality he likes from entering America, even if he's being bigoted or wrong in doing so.

Does the title mean to say "flailing" or "failing"

The Affordable Health Care Act is not what it says it is, is illegal as Pelosi and her cohorts came on national tv and told the Congress they would have to pass it to read it! It is a piece of crap and breaking the country. Shame on you. You sound so stupified I can not listen any more. I hope no one listen to your weidness. Who are you? What have you accomplished? Shut up. We have no government that works, at all. It needs to be disrupted and people need to be held accountable. Trump has not done anything with Russia and this has been proven. Lie, lies, and more lies.

He might not be getting covered by the TV shows but definitely by Vox..

-.- ok Vox has become 'Fake News'. And all those polls are most likely fake too.
Alexey Goodman
Ultimately I think vox is just doing some wishful thinking about trumps resignation. His support is growing amongst the common people especially after charlottesville. Conservatives like his anti liberal platform even if it is may cost them their Healthcare and another potential war overseas. Now matter what he does he's the preffered option and Hillary was seen as a danger to tradionalism.

So Vox, this video of yours is great and I love how you all do your research well to give us some great information. I appreciate the work you do giving us knowledge about how the government and the Republican party is doing. I would also like it if you would research a bit into the Democratic party and give us information about them as well. What are they doing well? What are they doing poorly? I would like some more equal attention to both parties.

I heard that kindergarten was complicated for Trump but he loved military school cos he had a uniform strong men with ranks like captain, major and colonel and lots of talk about girls. Nothing too hard there.
Bottle of bleach!
The markets have been going up under his presidency

Now...do I upvote this because the video was thought out, interesting, and logical...or do I dislike it because it's on a topic that no one should like, namely a low-quality president?
President Donald Trump
Ezra really hates Trump huh.
Trump 2020!
MrPete8680
Gas prices falling, stock market rising, value of dollar rising, unemployment falling. What a horrible president.

What is with all these people in the comments section who are criticizing the video or the views of the people who run Vox? To those people: "why are you watching?", and "you know this is a liberal channel, right?"

Now, I would watch Fox News reports to do what you do, but I tend to seek comedy from the Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
Christian Gomez
SETH RICH FOR PRESIDENT 2024😇
Denise Eugene
LMAO! A joke ! Damn !
Christian Gomez
Anyone need proof of God Appointment of THEDONALD! Everything you push to blame Trump for, simply brings the democrats to the ground, stupid quick 😇. My democrat party is being destroyed and it's beautiful! Corrupt republicans will also fall. Hopefully now, democracy is reviving! Go THEDONALD, keep showing your supporters (Winning!)! Maybe liberals and rest of sleepers keep getting stung by GOD'S appointy🤝🍼

it's good to hear a REPUBLICAN talk about another REPUBLICAN

Dear Ezra, just watched your beautifully written piece on Nov. 8. I'm frustrated having spent a couple of hours this morning trying to come up with a similar thought, but without the historical perspectives or elegance. Thanks for your work. I was reflecting on why his base -- 38% support -- never seems to break down. You hit the nail on the head -- its fear and loathing of Democrats. How we feel about Trump may feel similar to how the right felt about Obama -- without the racism, Russian election interference, firing of the FBI director, inadvertent disclosure of classified information -- to the Russians, etc. Keep calm and carry on.
