Rather than a press conference or interview, Trump put out a video seemingly to assure Americans that we don’t have to spend our days and nights in absolute terror because he’s in charge. Flip to the end: he didn’t succeed.
All Trump did was create confusion. Reading the transcript doesn’t provide more clarity.
There is much in the short Trump video to cause one sleepless nights, but the Trump promise that really grabbed me is his promise of a rule to kill rules:
On regulation, I will formulate a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated, it’s so important.
In effect, he’s proposing a Terminator Rule.
Leaving aside the soundness of just tossing rules and regulations aside, can Trump as President create a Terminator Rule?
