Susan Page: Trump’s Not Really a Republican
PAGE: "You know, you might have had LBJ being threatening to someone as he — as he twisted arms behind the scenes, but this is — this is quite extraordinary and one more sign of how you say Trump — Trump is not a conservative. He’s not really a Republican in many ways. And we saw that play out in the health care debate where Trump’s agenda and Trump’s supporters were different from — from Ryan. Ryan is a tradition al 'Let’s have a smaller government' kind of conservative. Trump would be happy, I think, with a larger health care bill that takes care of some of the older voters, some of the Democratic-leaning voters in the Upper Midwest who voted for him, and that is a bigger government that Ryan’s unhappy with. But, to do that, he would need to form a real coalition, a real bipartisan coalition with Democrats. And I can tell you, there is zero sentiment on the Democratic side to cooperate with Donald Trump, which we’re going to see this week in the Supreme Court vote."
