It is easy to perdict this will last all of 2 weeks. The 2 week time constant is rooted in Nature Herself:
To the extent they are even functional at all tRUMP voters "operate" on a 2 week maximum time frame so all tRUMP needs to do is posture for 2 weeks on coal, 2 weeks on tariffs, 2 weeks on border walls, etc., and his base will lap it up.
At the end of the two weeks of talk the protectionists realize the Ford plants have not re opened, the nativists realize that the Mexicans are still in the U. S. and the coal miners realize they are still unemployed.
Then tRUMP capitulates on the previous 2 weeks of talk.
Will tRUMP making a mockery of their crank economics and crank politics edutikate his ignorant base? Hardly. For one thing, a lot of things operate on a time frame that is a lot longer than 2 weeks so tRUMP's base will always be as confused and whacked out as ever.
