tao of the demagogue: creating chaos, part "why doesn't he have a plan?"

Trump (or should I say Putin) does have a plan: weaken the government. The simplest things that he could have done to even have a functioning administration have not been done. That's the plan. That is why his nominees say that haven't really talked to Trump about his policy on this or that issue. That's why he suddenly wants to push the repeal and replacement of Obamacare even though he knows that it can't be done quickly if at all. It will create chaos in Congress that will divert attention from his conflicts of interest. He has no incentive to even make the republicans look good or actually get anything done.

Once a demagogue has power his main goals are consolidating power and silencing his enemies. The republicans have lost control of the Congress and they will probably have whiplash from trying to follow his lead.
