“President Trump,” The New York Times reports, “struck a deal with Democratic congressional leaders on Wednesday to increase the debt limit and finance the government until mid-December, blindsiding his own Republican allies as he reached across the aisle to resolve a major dispute for the first time since taking office.” Republicans are stunned; pundits are struggling to discern his overarching strategy. Why did he cut a deal with “Chuck and Nancy?”
I think the answer is simple: He is, as Jeb! Bush predicted he would be a long time ago, a chaos president. He is sheer id, will to power, and destruction. He has no principles, so he has no core beyond the desire to win, which for him is domination.
Obama was Vishnu, the preserver. Trump is Shiva, the destroyer of the world.
