I said it from the beginning–Donald Trump has no political allegiances. He believes in what helps promote himself:
President Donald Trump’s continued resistance to his own party and recent deal with Democrats led both the Associated Press and The New York Times to publish articles Saturday suggesting Trump is a president independent of the two major parties.
“Although elected as a Republican last year, Mr. Trump has shown in the nearly eight months in office that he is, in many ways, the first independent to hold the presidency since the advent of the current two-party system around the time of the Civil War,” the Times’ Peter Baker wrote. The AP article noted, “A president who spent months catering to the Republican conservative wing now appears unbound by ideology and untethered by party allegiances.”
