Why Does Trump Keep Doing This?

Either our system is going to break, or Trump's finally going to fail. It's an exhausting drama.

Does Trump understand democracy? I'm really asking.

His approach to politics is combative kill-or-be-killed. If you hit him, he will hit you back harder, no matter what the rules of the game are.

Perhaps that's because, up to a certain point, it's working. The man's still president. He's getting at least some of his agenda accomplished, even if it's only in the form of stalling progress on fighting climate change and other forms of throwing wrenches into anything he doesn't like.
