RUSH: I’m telling you, the more success Trump has, the greater the energy poured into opposing him is gonna be. If you are thinking that at some point in these next four years that the opposition to Trump is going to lay down arms, so to speak, and join him, that’s never gonna happen.
The real leadership of the opposition is never, ever gonna do anything but continue to ramp up efforts to stop Trump or destroy Trump. Now, common, ordinary, everyday Democrats, not leftists, there may be — if the agenda gets implemented and this country starts humming on the domestic side and if jobs come back and if the economy gets up to 3% growth and is sustained and the job market expands accordingly and people’s wages go up, it won’t matter.
But if you think that people today, like Hollywood, are ever gonna sing Trump’s praises, it’s never gonna happen, folks. It’s only going to get worse. And they know it at the White House. They’re not expecting these people to be won over. That’s not why Trump’s doing anything he’s doing. They don’t expect the establishment types to one day say, “You know what? You’re right, Mr. Trump, this is great. We like what you’re doing.” It’s never gonna happen. They don’t expect that to happen.
There may be, as I say, average, ordinary everyday Americans who come home to the cause, but the leaders of the establishment and the power brokers in it and the global establishment, they’re never, ever gonna say, “You know what? We were wrong and Trump is right. And we need to get behind him.” They’re never gonna become what they think Trump is, a populist, a nationalist or what have you. It’s gonna be a battle. That’s why you better be glad Trump’s the guy waging it. He’s the one guy you could have elected who’s not going to cave on this stuff, certainly not in the first month, first six months, first year. They’re just getting warmed up.
I still am of the opinion that the establishment types and the left, they still don’t know what they’re dealing with here. They’re still trying their time-honored blueprint for destroying political figures they don’t like, primarily Republicans.
