The fate of the presidency, Donald trump may depend on what he will do next. After trump failed to repeal the law on health insurance Obamacare, he will have to regroup and try to figure out how to avoid another legislative defeat in their next big issue - tax reform. The second failure could undermine his presidency.
Trump's aides considered health care reform as an easy early win, as a way to give impetus to his presidency and to build a more radical change, selected from his ambitious program. But the humiliating defeat on Friday severely weakened President and electrified Democrats.
Trump was surprised by some of the people close to him his reaction to the collapse of health on Friday. He was not angry. Instead, speaking in the oval office, trump was "Moody and quiet", when you are contemplating your first blow "swamp" of Washington, which he promised to merge said one insider source. The President knew that he could not solve the problem, which is his political base. He also remembered that the disaster in health care will lead to the fact that it will be much harder to solve the problem of tax reform.
Already his eyes on the midterm elections, which usually harm their own party President, some of trump's advisers fear that the survival of Obamacare will be a turning point for their political opponents. "Democrats will feel emboldened, and their base will feel encouraged," said a senior administration official.
In a sense, it is not surprising that trump is fighting. He is the most inexperienced new President in history and there is a lack of political networks and insider contacts that most commanders take for granted when they take office.
