RUSH: If I’ve had one person ask me, I’ve had a thousand. “What should Trump do, Rush? What can he do, what can we do, how can we stop this?”
I’m gonna tell you what I think is the best thing Donald Trump could do. Just focus on repealing Obamacare, and then focus on tax reform, and then just move full speed ahead on the domestic agenda. Make tracks. Do it obviously. Bring in people, have meetings, bring the Republicans up, the Democrats up, as the president in a room telling them: This is why we were all elected, it’s why you lost, this is what we’re gonna do. Work together to move these tax cuts forward, reform the tax code, repeal Obamacare.
None of this, “Oh, man, I don’t know, two years.” Just do it! If Trump would engage at full speed on his domestic agenda, which is why he was elected, then his people will stay with him no matter what this Obama shadow government tries. And his people is all Trump has. He doesn’t have the media with him like Obama did. He has the media trying to destroy him. Trump has his voters. There are 60 some odd million people that voted for Trump. In a Gallup poll today, 62% said they believe Trump is honest and is trying to keep his promises.
RUSH: The media is not trying to persuade Trump supporters that Trump’s a reprobate. What they’re trying to do is persuade Trump supporters that it’s pointless to hang on. It’s pointless to support Trump because there’s no way he can survive. They are trying to get you to give up and abandon Trump, and that would isolate him. The way Trump fights all this, in my humble estimation, is full-speed ahead domestic agenda — items on which he campaigned, items that form the basis of his shocking presidential victory.
