This writer at least: The Pivot Is Real, And It’s Spectacular Trump doesn’t like McConnell and Ryan, and never did. He likes Chuck Schumer, and knows Chuck always makes money for his partners. By Ben Domenech http://thefederalist.com/2017/09/06/the-pivot-is-real-and-its-spectacular/ I feel that it's a bit optimistic and gives too much credit to Trump. I'm not sure he has a long term strategy. Also, as Republicans have learned it is a lot easier to get a caucus to reject stuff than to vote for it. It will be interesting to see if Trump does try to govern through Dems on infastructure, taxes, healthcare etc if the Dem leadership can deliver the votes any better than Ryan and McConnel.
