Donald Trump’s presidency is reality TV on steroids. It is chaotic. It is mad. But is it working? For all the endless talk of the disaster that has befallen American since the election of 2016, for all the media meltdowns, America seems okay. The Democrats have spent months predicting a ‘blue wave’ will crash over Trump’s leadership in the mid-term elections in November. Will they be proved right? And even if the Republican Party loses, does that make the president a lame duck? Or is Donald Trump winning?
