I told you over the weekend that Trump's presidency was over. As a practical matter it is. His yielding to his 'advisors' on every foreign policy issue makes it clear that he can't or won't stand up to the relentless pressure to do what his instincts tell him.
This morning's article at the Deep State Washington Post paints a very clear picture of what the situation is. The advisors whose loyalties are dubious run the show. Their thinking has not evolved one whit from previous administrations.
Remember what Russian President Vladimir Putin always says, "Presidents change. Policies do not."
Case in point they manipulated Trump into over-reacting to the Skripal poisoning by ousting 60 Russian diplomats, even though Trump clearly wanted to match Germany and France.
