Divisions Grow in Donald Trump’s Washington
Gerald Seib, in his 'Capital Journal' column for the WSJournal, wrote on Monday about a growing problem in Washington:
The problem in Washington is no longer simply paralyzing partisanship. The danger at the moment is that the capital could be sliding into a kind of tribalism.
The fights over health care and a new Supreme Court justice suggest that the divides aren’t simply between Republicans and Democrats. Instead, there are schisms within the parties, and in some cases schisms within the schisms.
Mr. Seib points out that, while it may be tempting to place the blame squarely on our polarizing leader, the roots of the trend run deeper. That said, here are the 5 tribes that have set up camp in our nation’s capital:
- The Trump Tribe
- Governing Republicanas
- Freedom Causus Republicans
- Never-Trump Democrats
- Maybe-Sometimes Democrats
