Donald Trump is a dangerously weak president
The media is crediting him with a tax overhaul victory. But he still holds remarkably little clout in Washington.
Neustadt’s book was one of my favorite reads as a poli sci major in college. I remember most clearly the paragraph where Ike was asked about the power of the presidency, and he replied (as I paraphrase from memory), I’m just a glorified clerk, but, the power of the presidency is the ability to use the bully pulpit to convince others that what you are asking them to do is in their own self interest. This article is a great read for those of you who are poli-sci enthusiasts…
Trump has no concept of this. Nil. Nada. Nuttin.
