    Maybe, Steve - but I've noticed quite a few can be induced to do it on command by the press just about any time. Tell you what - in Trump's case, I'll worry about that sometime - right after I worry about the 2045 Stanley Cup - and you KNOW how I feel about hockey!

    Trump Strategy on the GOP side is simple.

    To deliver as much as possible on his promises.
    I mean he worked on the issues as he promised. Some are a partial success.
    I think he did well in his 4 years, even with all the attacks and sabotages that he had to overcome.

    One could just as easily say that Trump made good on a variety of threats, not promises.
