President Trump blames the failure of his signature legislation, the American Health Care Act, on Democrats, even though he never enlisted their help on the bill. And even though he says publicly that he doesn’t blame Paul Ryan for this failure, we can guess that if he had to choose himself or Ryan to blame for the failure of the legislation, he would surely blame Ryan.
Of course, throughout his campaign for president, Trump constantly bragged that ‘Washington is broken,’ and as a master deal maker, only he can ‘fix it.’ So which is it, did the Democrats, Paul Ryan or a combination of both cause Trump to fail or is Trump himself the cause of this massive and embarrassing failure?
After all, you can’t say that only you can fix something and then not take responsibility for not fixing it. Trump is ultimately responsible for this massive legislative failure because whether he likes it or not, he is now the President of the United States.
