    It seems that Donald Trump is having far more trouble with his own GOP establishment than he is with the Democratic party. Though Trump attacks CNN as "fake news" his clashes with his own political party are far more nasty and long lasting than with the liberal wing. Trump's quotes such as: "Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win — I will teach them!" Is leaving republicans in both the house and senate openly wondering whose side he is on. In addition, Trump's recent deal with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over DACA has left republican lawmakers fuming. So, is Donald Trump really a Republican? Can he really govern effectively while waging war on his own party base?

    A white supremacist naturally clashes more often with whites than non-whites, simply because he's around whites more often. It makes sense that Trump, a conservative, would clash more often with members of his own party, since he has many more Republicans surrounding him then Democrats.

    Then again, Obama didn't fight his own party nearly as much ss Trump does.

    Donald Trump is not a Republican. Until he decided to run in the Republican primary, he not only voted Democratic but contributed large sums of money to the Democratic party and Democratic candidates. So much money, that he succeeded in having his Sister be appointed a judge on the United States District Court by a Democratic President.

    Aldan might as well deny that St Augustine of Hippo was a Christian because,
    by his own account, he was a prolific sinner until he converted to Christianity.

    I await the white racial supremacists who want to argue that Hitler's not really white.
