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.

Trump should run for a third term I know he can't but he should

Politics isn't really business. It's a mess.

I will admit he has went back on a few things (personally i think he was misinformed a lot) but your narrative is a bit biased -
There has been 0 evidence of the Russia claims, with Maxine Waters ultimately admitting that, the so called "unconstitutional Muslim ban' wasn't even a full Muslim ban, it just slowed income from six, not all middle eastern/Muslim countries refugees to the United States. Not to mention the economies numbers are at the highest they've been in a very long time.
Anyone seeing a Robert Baratheon parallel? :)

Well, when Trump wins the 2020 election, I'll come back and laugh at you all.

After watching this video I still don't understand why Vox won't supply its employees with something better than 2$ H&M t-shirts.
Notice how they used the word "flailing," but the word they're really trying to inject in your head is "failing." The Mainstream Media uses subtleties and ambiguities in their titles like this all the time to sway the opinions of the population. Do not trust the Mainstream Media (Vox is MSM too, don't let some effeminate hipster with the thick glasses fool you).

God, how has nobody else been bothered by the annoying sound of his mouth? It sounds like somebody fisting a jar of mayonnaise. Ease up on the tongue action.

what would happen if the trump goverment "pulls out" (oh dear the double meaning is so bad) vice president to be president? reelections? what would happen if the public wanted to take him out early (can they vote on it?) do they know about 'coup' thats been hsppening a lot in Australia recently?
Trevor Wilford
That's some real bi partisan reporting Vox. Quit stirring the pot by increasing tensions between the voting public. Offer facts that represent both sides, and let your viewers decide. Garbage video.
It's been getting worse for him day by day.

It all goes to democrats covering 3 faults and not the 100 correct and right things he has done, cover what he has done good instead of constantly spreading hate and brainwashing all these people it's so wrong
MP Akira
One of the reasons the healthcare didn't even come out was because the democrats were way too mad about him appealing Obama care they didn't even attempt even try it. No way it could be more consuming and weak Obama care was
I kind of just feel sorry for Trump. At the end of the day, he's a reality tv star whose in over his head and who is too egotistical to admit it.
The people who say they are republican in the comments and think this was a good video are not republicans
Ranger Dimitri
The Democrats and Republicans should just dissolve altogether, at least then we might get a bit of a better job then at least
Trump struck Syria because they used chemical weapons on their own families/children
Stupid, lazy Americans who supported Trump are getting exactly what they deserve: dangerous chaos in a farcical white house!
mackenzie stryker
honestly why does this video have 5k dislikes.... pretty much everything he said was backed up by facts

Trumps really going to make America, not Great again.

Why is a band of Muslims so bad?

Oooooohhh, BAN, that's terrible
That's exactly what I think about Trump's presidency so far - he was 'supposed' to destroy America (as stated by Democrats) or make it great again (as his voters believed), but after all he feels more like a political child who needs to have smart things repeated to him over and over, as was the case with Merkel explaining USA-Germany trade deal 11 TIMES to him. This is both good and bad - Trump's incompetence means we won't be having World War III too soon (what some left-wing public figures actually believed would happen), but at one time USA is left with a weak government for the next couple of years.

Well you retards voted for him so this is what you get

curious why this is being downvoted?
"Hillary Clinton wins"


"Trump wins"

sweet rocka
More propaganda, Trump won, is doing what he said he would do, even it does not always work out, he is a man of his word, and the US is doing great, the world is safer, every Presdents popularity flutuates, he is still much better then Hillary and definitely a lot better then Obama.
Trump is the only person in America with brain
true story
The same guy who preeched that the 3rd debate was the final nail in the coffin for trump.
Sin Bad
I just hope he doesn't just say " yea yea launch the nukes I don't care" one day in his four years as president...
Ricardo Corchado
what is a "normal" president I have to ask that because not every presidency is the same
Any future President will have more room to navigate as people could always say "Eh at least he/she is not as bad as Trump".
Christopher Crosby
Look at the Big orangutans lies, In his Pre-election speeches and pledges he promised America First! and China was the worst enemy against the USA since Satan himself...Yet...Trumpet has now continued and enhanced the 'GOLDEN VISA' programme, this is where by you can Jump the Que and get a guaranteed way into the USA by investing money in the US, If you do that you get a VISA...EVEN IF YOU ARE CHINESE, especially if you are Chinese as it was touted at a seminar to invest in a New Jersey real estate venture that was held by The Great Orange leaders Son in Law's sister, i.e. Kushner's sister in China where she even had a photo of Trump on her presentation slides! WHAT? yep, Nepotism...keep it in the family, just like Trumpet man berating the company that took his Daughter, IVANKA'S line of merchandise of its Catalogue! But this recent case of Kushner's sister is Bad because it is encouraging Chinese to invest in the US (which will HELP to MAKE CHINA EVEN GREATER 'again'!) Something he vehemently said he was against, yet his own family go doing these investment sales seminars using his name! and the real bad one is the guaranteed Visa, yes, only if you can invest Half a million Dollars, but that's even worse in a way he'll let anyone in for Money...he is a clown.
Oh and wheres the Wall? You know, the one MEXICO will pay for...'USA USA USDA USA USA...Hmm well that's now downgraded to the great \Orange leader now going cap in hand to congress for funds to build it, but dont worry it will eventually be paid by Mexico...Indirectly? WTF? That is not what you said in your election lie...er..I mean promises, is it? BUILD THE WALL< BUILD THE WALL< BUILD THE WALL!
WAKE UP the Bozos who put him in power!
No More world Police, no more getting involved in costly wars where young Americans are being killed ! Oh Yeah? in his first week US special forces personnel were killed in Yemen. What is the US doing in Yemen? world police! Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, and Syria...The USA has to be in a war somewhere it's historical fact, now I'm not knocking that because in SOME cases it's needed but not widespread gung ho kill a rag-head nonsense that has been endemic and cost the US Trillions of Dollars but no worries as the US doesn't do it anymore because Mr 'Super comb over' said they would not do it anymore because it was AMERICA first! LoL yeah, Sure!
we dont wanna watch you show us things
Flailing or Failing??
