Donald Trump knows precisely “Now What.” He is doing it, step by step, day by day. He is MAGA.
“Now look, that damned cowboy is President of the United States.”
Quote attributed to Old Guard Republican party boss Mark Hanna complaining to a colleague, regarding Theodore Roosevelt.
TR assumed the Presidency with the assassination of William McKinley, and gave notice to the world that the Twentieth Century was well begun. Love him or hate him, much of the history of the United States pivoted around him, and he set the tone for decades to come.
Donald Trump, if not strictly in the mold of Teddy, is just such a pivotal character.
