Tim Carney, commentary editor at the Washington Examiner and visiting fellow at AEI, discusses the Inauguration crowd, what Trump will do with Obamacare, and reactions from the Washington establishment.
Carney said Trump doesn’t have a reason to worry about the lack of people who made it to DC for the Inauguration. “Trump, unlike most Republicans, drew from further down the income ladder. People who were less likely to get up and travel to DC,” he said. “People who weren’t surrounded by strong institutions of civil society… people who didn’t have a church group that could organize a bus.”
What kinds of deals is Trump making with Carrier, Boeing, and the like? “I’m afraid that Trump is showing up in these meetings and either getting fooled by these people, or doing what we’ve always done where the two people behind the closed door conspire against the rest of the country,” he said.
