It's clear as day, President Trump is surrounded by those who want to destroy him. In all three branches of government, there are people who want President Trump and his agenda to fail.
Paul Ryan, for example, is missing the mark on pushing through Trump's agenda, Mitch McConnell hasn't been much help in the Senate either. The GOP is the biggest thorn in Trump's side at the moment with the constant failures and feuds.
For crying out loud, back in October 2016, Paul Ryan said himself he'll never support Donald Trump. Listen for yourself, per Breitbart News:
John McCain and Lindsey Graham were so critical of President Trump until the President bombed that Syrian airfield, makes you think huh? Out of all things Trump did prior and wanted to implement, "America First", GOP senators McCain and Graham applaud Trump for bombing Syria.
Then you have the GOP controlled House not being able to agree on healthcare because the GOP establishment refused to work with conservatives, and Paul Ryan sold Trump a bad bill.
The Chuck Schumer and the democrats obstruct every single nominee of President Trump, and now are vowing to shut the government down over border wall funding. President Trump should let the shut down happen, but what's worse is, according to The Gateway Pundit Paul Ryan wants to delay wall funding until 2018.
In that same article, the Border Patrol Union president was not very happy with that report. It just honestly seems like there is a coordinated attack on President Trump by both parties, but there are those in the GOP who are with Trump. People like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in the Senate, and people like Trey Gowdy and Jim Jordan in the House.
Now we're all too familiar with liberal judges blocking President Trump's executive actions on immigration and travel, and today that song was sung again. U.S District Judge William Orrick, of California, issued an injunction that will stay in place until two lawsuits go through court regarding Trump's order on sanctuary city funding, according to Associated Press.
President Trump is really trying to implement his "America First" agenda, but he can only do so much by himself, and the courts are so politicized that some judges are acting on politics and not on law. Most of these judges come from liberal locked places like California, so that should tell you something.
President Trump will soon have the Supreme Court on his side, but that needs to come sooner rather than later.
President Trump not only has to worry about the Judicial and Legislative branches, but his own Executive branch as well. Those true to his agenda, like Steve Bannon and Steven Miller, are being pushed to the side while people like Jared Kushner, Ivanka, and former Goldman Sachs executives are front and center. Rex Tillerson and Nikki Haley seem to be sticking to Trump's plan though, which is very important given their roles. Let's not forget the many Obama admin hold overs that are helping leak intel reports regarding Trump, that are baseless.
The "Deep State" or the intel agencies are infected with Obama staffers who have been helping thwart President. Those who wish to do him harm want globalism to survive and for the status quo to survive, which the election of Donald Trump threatened and is on his way to destroy. These people do not want America First, they want globalism and more money for themselves.
President Trump needs to fight his way through this hell and stick to his base. Trump needs to listen to those who got him elected, use the law to his advantage, and have the ones loyal to him help him accomplish this. Eventually Congress will have no choice, but to listen and then the swamp can finally be drained, because the alligators have all made themselves noticeable.
