Apparently we have to wait till Trump gets his orders because from what I can gather, the new President is actually Sean Hannity.

Mr Trump is only the elected president. Hannity/Limbaugh/Coulter are the de facto troika presidents representing Russian interests and the base.

DONALD TRUMP ADMITS, ‘I DIDN'T NEED TO Do This; SAYS HE’D JUST ‘RATHER DO IT MUCH FASTER’ (Newsweek). This guy really knows how to undercut every fake position he takes.

I'm sorry, did I miss the part where he declared a national emergency?
Did I miss the part where he called all Mexicans rapists, gang members and drug dealers?

How did that bill work out then? Racial dog whistling and tough on crime posturing by the democrats had the desired political effect.
