"Assumes Facts Not in Evidence"-- Trump Ed

One of Trump's oldest friends, Thomas J. Barrack, Jr., has been dismayed by what Trump has been doing:
Barrack, in interviews with The Washington Post, said he has been “shocked” and “stunned” by some of the president’s rhetoric and inflammatory tweets. He disagrees with some of Trump’s proposals, including his efforts to ban immigrants from certain Muslim countries and his push for a border wall with Mexico. He wonders why his longtime friend spends so much of his time appealing to the fringes of American politics.

“He thinks he has to be loyal to his base,” Barrack said. “I keep on saying, ‘But who is your base? You don’t have a natural base. Your base now is the world and America, so you have all these constituencies; show them who you really are.’ In my opinion, he’s better than this.”
I don't see any evidence to support that. Trump has been pandering to his Nazi base all along. He's also going full-on racist in that he's threatening to cut off help to Puerto Rico, but he's made no such threats to Texas or Florida.

Trump's been presidenting like a spoiled toddler. His operating principle has been to find everything that his predecessor was for and then reflexively go the other way, without a bit of thought or consideration as to the merits.

It's at the point, now, that if Obama had set up a task force to crack down on child prostitution, Trump would sign an executive order making prostitution mandatory for middle-school students.

45 is just continuing the GOP/Republican marching orders that McConnell gave voice to when Barrack Hussain Obama preparing to be sworn in to become POTUS. Make President Obama a one term POTUS.
