How Have We Done Under Trump?

Jennifer Rubin is one of the Washington Post's conservative columnists.  She sums up the first 100 days of his presidency as follows:

As bad as Trump has been — in our book he’s been just as bad as we anticipated — democracy is faring better than we feared. Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress, again with some noticeable exceptions, have demonstrated they have neither the ability nor the will to check the president. They’d better step up to the plate soon or voters will conclude the only way to prevent further damage to the Republic is to vote for Democrats in 2018.
 She backs up the summary with a well written set of details to support her summation. Its hard to imagine Trump's future in government when highly respected conservatives like Jennifer Rubin, David Brooks and George Will have lost respect for him.  Party loyalty in Congress among Republicans who put Party over country is the only thing that he has left.
