So, what can we conclude? Well, a Deal has been made. The leading members of the economically dominant sector of the ruling class, including at least some members of his cabinet, likely have the goods on Trump, enough goods to lead to impeachment, even by a Republican-dominated Congress. But, they like his strong regulation-destruction policy. They didn't like his foreign policy. They do now. Since they have had so many tax cuts since Reagan, even though they didn't get the ones that were snuck into the failed Trumpcare, they decided that they can wait on further tax cuts. As long as he is a good boy on the issues central to their corporate interests, they will leave him in place. And they don't care if he burnishes his reactionary credentials on the backs of the undocumented immigrants, the African-Americans, the poor, the LGBTQ community, and so on and so forth.Although I did think that Pence might well become President sooner rather than later, now I'm not so sure. Trump is getting to like being president, especially when he can talk about "my generals" and drop bombs with no follow-up plan as well as boast about "sending the fleet" to Korean waters (when it was still, at the time of the original announcement, safely ensconced in Indonesian waters), go to Mar-a-Lago as often as he wants to, for now at least put the Trump Royal Family in charge of running the government (even if they don't have the foggiest notion of how to go about doing that), and continue to Tweet, or at least approve what his tweet writers put before him every now and then. Of course, he still might resign if he feels that he has done just about as much Trump-brand promotion
