Yes, Trump has an agenda for a second term. It's all about him.

Opinion by Fred Hiatt

Itís not true that President Trump has failed to outline his goals for a second term.

Sure, the Republicans failed to adopt a platform at their nominating convention, accelerating their slide from party to cult.

And, true, if you look on Trumpís campaign website, you will find a great deal of boasting about (largely imaginary) accomplishments ó and no plans for a second term.

But to an extraordinary degree, Trumpís actions in the closing days of his first presidential term tip us off to how he hopes to reign ó yes, reign ó in a second. If we return him to office, we wonít be able to say we didnít see it coming.

And what is ďitĒ? Not any particular ideology, philosophy or program.

No, what Trump is openly showing us is his intention to reshape the U.S. government from an institution designed to serve the nation and its people to one that caters to one manís whims, prejudices, grudges, vanity and profit.
