Last Wednesday Was Trump's First Day As A Democratic President. Here Are 7 Things You Need To Know.

President Trump spent his first day as a Democratic president on Wednesday. After months of being excoriated as a racist and a nut by the Democratic Party, Democrats suddenly found a man they could work with — and Trump seemed to revel in it. The day began with a rally in North Dakota, where Trump talked up Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp, whom he called a “good woman.” He explained, “These are great people. They work hard. They’re for you 100 percent.”
Next, Trump headed back to the White House, where he expressed his hope that President Obama’s executive amnesty would be enshrined in law by the Republican Congress. He followed up that doozy by undercutting Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) by siding with Democratic leaders House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on raising the debt ceiling. McConnell and Ryan wanted either a clean funding bill for the Hurricane Harvey relief, or such relief connected with other Republican priorities and wrapped up in an eighteen-month debt ceiling increase that would take Republicans beyond the election. Instead, Trump signed off on combining Hurricane Harvey relief with a three-month debt ceiling increase, a total Democratic victory that also gives Democrats the upper hand in budget negotiations in December.
So, what’s driving Trump to this?
A few factors. --->

Trump is wooing Democrat Senators in red states. Any political novice knows that's why he's being nice to Sen. Heitcamp. He needs her votes for tax cuts; you know, that conservative thing that out in the open and heretofore secret liberal Trump is trying to do for all of us.
