The Donald won the Republican primaries and the general election with his anti- reality strategy. The question is whether the Trump Administration can run our government in the same way they he ran his election campaign. This article, by a Republican who worked in the Bush Administration, argues that Trump will not win his war against reality. The quote below describes what Trump hopes to accomplish:
"With less than a month in office, Trump is beginning to see reality’s revenge. His overall strategy seems disturbingly ambitious. Retired Gen. Michael Hayden, who directed both the CIA and the NSA, describes it this way in an interview: “A systematic effort to invalidate and delegitimize all the institutions, governmental and nongovernmental, that create the factual basis for action . . . so they won’t push back against arbitrary moves.”The article from which this quote was taken
explains why Trump will not win his war against reality. "We are not Venezuela" That is, our institutions are too strong and they have a bias in favor in reality.
