    I copied this from Donald's twitter:Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) | Twitter

    "The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!"

    He's giving away some of his not unsuccessful strategy here. What Donald is saying is he is pushing the D's to defend their weaker or more radical links.

    If the man had self control he'd of won the popular vote last time. He isn't an idiot, he just lacks a filter like many of the other rich Hollywood types who get surrounded by "yes ppl".

    No, he's an idiot. He has no strategy, just a certain minimum of low cunning like a rat or a dog.

    Toronado3800 is right. Trump IS forcing the Democratic Party to align themselves with the most radical elements of their party, thereby exposing themselves as equally radical (oops). And guess what? It's working. Pelosi is identifying herself as an extremist, right along with the four traitors who are polling at less than 20%. The OP would have been a good post except for the last line, which is total bullshit.

    I'll proudly say Donald did the right thing talking with North Korea and Donald lacks a filter like many other rich Hollywood types.

    Are you disputing the yes men part?

    For the larger topic, do you think Donald is forcing the D's further to the left economically by 'making them defend some of the more radical healthcare ideas?

    I'll ad a bit about the R's and to some extent Donald pushing others towards libertarianism socially.

    Don't let your hatred blind you. Trump is a fool in some ways but to some his flaws almost work like a beautiful model with that slightly big chin or whatever and it makes him more of a person or relatable.

    Few folks are all good or bad. Plus you can learn from even the executable ones St Peter is going to chase from the pearly gates, serial killers, the always mentioned Adolph Hitler, whoever.

    Trump is only facilitating the current Democrat Party divide the nation.
    A 'divide and conquer' strategy has worked for centuries!
    He is applying a time-tested strategy.
    Democrats are so confused that their diviseness is playing right into his hands...
    especially the SQUID SQUAD.
    It's a beautiful thing to behold!

    Would you agree the Democrats are the more diverse party and that is what is playing into his hands?

    Good or bad, I THINK the D's have been the more varied party since the 70's.

    Its been difficult for me to find stats on "party line" voting but I'd be curious.

    I do have this which seems to favor the R's being more diverse in their voting at least.

    Diversity is no longer a strength for the Democrat Party as they now expect exceptional American citizens take a back seat and foot the bill for illegals, countries that use us financially, and have constructed an unrealistic, non-sovereign, and unproveable non-legal term that they call a 'global citizen'.
