There is a famous battle being fought inside the White House ever since Trump first got into office: White House chief strategist Steve Bannon versus the insiders. The insiders being Reince Priebus and Paul Ryan. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is presumed to be Trump’s link with Congress. He is also presumed to be ‘too establishment’ for Bannon, who’s known to be the ‘tear down the establishment’ type of outsider.
Thanks to the GOP’s disgrace of a health care bill, Steve Bannon is now winning the war. Trumpcare is getting bashed by the media resulting in both Priebus and Ryan taking massive political blowback. Establishment congressional Republicans were too weak and cowardly to take on the Obamacare beast, and now their inaction is taking its toll on them in the eye of the public. Obamacare is now Trumpcare. Trumpcare is now owned by the Republicans. Republicans weren’t willing to fight to destroy and fix the Affordable Care Act, so the blame gets put on them for its failure. People realize that the establishment in Congress is becoming a cowardice regressive force that has been retrograde for the country so far, so they look towards the person who, for years, has wanted the establishment torn down: Steve Bannon.
Let’s see where this leads us.
