Now that the unthinkable has become a reality, what now? After Trump became the president-elect and the adrenaline wore off, Trump appeared bewildered. I don't think he ever thought he would win. So now what? Trump has once again manged to get himself into a situation for which he is wholly unprepared and totally unqualified. For the last few days, his staff has been in chaos. He purged his cadre based on loyalty or the lack thereof. Trump is truly overwhelmed and our closest allies are understandably fearful of the havoc and discord he my wreak upon the world. So what's next? I'm still having great difficulty wrapping my mind around a President Trump and all that would entail, but there are a few hopeful signs. Let's all hope they pan out. There was a rumor today that Trump is now reaching out to others like Romney, folks in the "never Trump" movement. Let's hope that's true. Trump cannot do this on his own. Trump and the people who surround him are woefully lacking. They need people like Romney. They need people who understand the world. Clearly Trump and his people don't. It's both funny and sad. Trump has his family used his government funded transition website to hawk Trump products. That's a first. Ironically, Trump will be the least transparent and most conflicted president we have seen in at least a century. Immediately, Trump will need to appoint the landlord for his new Washington hotel: the head of the GSA. Even though we know very little about Trump's businesses we do know that on the day he is sworn in, a number of his businesses will be in direct conflict with his businesses. So what does the Trump administration do next? If Trump reaches out to others like Romney, that's a good sign. But if he continues with the loyalty purges, hold on to your hats and everything else. It's going to be a very rough ride.
