Trump made a huge error in surrounding himself with bad people. I think he is an awful judge of character because he essentially has no character himself. He left Comey in charge for too long. He left McCabe in place for too long. He has had deep state hacks in charge of very important positions for too long, and didn’t empty the offices of the Department of State as soon as he walked in the door. Reince Priebus was a big mistake, but I repeat myself. General Kelly was an equally big mistake, but McMaster was nearly the biggest mistake of all, perhaps right after Comey. No, correction. The biggest mistake of all was the absolute zero, Jeff Sessions, who left the deep state active, and even defended it.
He could also have made progress on the wall on the Southern border if he had chosen to focus on it early on in his tenure. Ironically, I think he wanted a delayed wall and to be surrounded by the deep state. He wanted the drama of the deep state to penetrate his presidency, and he wanted both the deep state and the wall as issues to run on in 2020. Also ironically, 2020 may be too late for him.
His big mistake for me is his love of big government and gun control.
This is from Herschel Smith over at the Captain's Journal. He is correct in his analysis.
