Ms. Noonan criticizes Trump saying "he doesn't perform a primary and obvious function of presidents which is to argue for things." Well, how do you argue with a mob?
How do you argue with Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi?
It was pretty much the same way Obama operated. There was no give and take over Obamacare, the budget, foreign policy, Iran.
In time, certain Trump policies and proposals will come together and discussions will ensue, but for the most part those discussions will all be within the Republican Party and a few Senators from a few states Trump won.
America is so divided there is nothing for the Parties to argue for. There is no common ground. Senator Schumer and the Democrats have declared that they are the Resistance.
