The elephant in the room. No one points out that the Great Negotiator has not once offered to negotiate with his foes (now a majority of the nation and nearly all the fact-using professions). Seriously, will no one proclaim this? "You haven't called a meeting with anyone except sycophants! and industrialists!"

Will no prominent Democrat ask this? "Sir, you are behaving like Nixon, under siege! Is it not a bit early for that? Instead of screaming, have you considered negotiating? Try it, for a change?"

This is extremely disturbing...Trump has already filed to run again. In doing so, he restricts what non-profits are allowed to say about him.

501c(3) groups - your general American "charity" - are not allowed to directly be involved in a political campaign. There are other non-profit designations for that. You can be in a group fighting a nuclear waste dump and say that Senator So-and-so doesn't support your cause but Senator Such-and-Such does, but you can't then say, "So vote for Senator Such-and Such!"

Generally speaking groups are free to say, "We don't like this current administration because it's hurting our cause in this way, so remember to vote in three years' time because this is a big problem!" this early in a presidential cycle.

But by being already filed to run, it puts non-profits at risk of losing their tax-free status if they speak out against Trump.

This is a very chilling way of silencing critics, and it is NOT NORMAL. Yes, the 501c(3)s can just talk around it, but it means they have to be careful and on higher alert, and you can bet the high-profile ones like Planned Parenthood will have Trump lawyers picking through every word looking for a way to shut them up.

Further, it means he can already start running attack ads on anyone he wants and call it part of his campaign.
