An interesting phenomenon may have arisen out of the unusual relationship President Trump has with the Republican Party.  Fundamentally and Constitutionally, there is nothing in the framework of the US federal government that relies upon political parties.  The tensions built into the US government were established to exist between the Executive, the Legislative and the […]
