Trump Crowds Out His Own Message

James Hohmann: “There are not many — if any — real opportunities for Republican incumbents to score meaningful legislative achievements between now and November.”

“The GOP’s struggles are remarkable because the economy is so strong. A solid jobs report came out last Friday, and the stock market is still up big since Trump took office, even after the recent correction.”

“But it’s not puzzling what’s going on: Trump’s approval rating is hovering below 40 percent, and he sucks up all the oxygen. He did it again yesterday, when he fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson over Twitter.”
