President Trump has botched the six weeks since the midterms and repeatedly makes irresponsible mistakes that have created weaker markets and political positions as he leads to next year’s divided government and his re-election war.

What happens: Yesterday became the day of “Dump on Trump” for the president’s common allies, as Republican officials condemned their seemingly impulsive decision to withdraw 2,000 US troops from Syria. Later Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) quoted a tweet from the Russian Embassy in Washington, who praised the decision and added: “I found someone who supports the decision to withdraw from Syria.”

  • Inviting “Mission accomplished” comparisons, Trump explained : “We have defeated ISIS in Syria.” Later, Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) called the revocation “an Obama-like mistake” that “would be a big win for ISIS, Iran, Bashar al Assad of Syria and Russia. I fear it will lead to devastating consequences for our nation, region, and all over the world. “
  • Trump was rolled for border financing, with conservative commentators roasting their cave from a shutdown without insurance or even indication that full funding was in offing. “WALL STALL … TRUMP IN RETREAT”, bannered Matt Drudge, who is usually supportive. And later: “PELOSI HOLIDAY CHEER … DANCING TO BAR AFTER WALL WIN!”
  • Democratic leaders could not believe their luck when Speaker designate Nancy Pelosi came to the White House’s intention to brand the funding game “Trump shutdown” and he did it to her and said in front of the cameras: “I’m proud to close the government of border security … i will put on the jacket … i will not blame you for it. “

Lager is on its way to its worst December since 1931 during the great depression.

Be smart: All this happened before Democrats take over the chamber and get the power of judgment.
