Trump’s ultimate self-own

President Trump was ready to barge into the ongoing economic rescue negotiations Thursday demanding $2,000 relief checks for all Americans, Jeff Stein reports at the Washington Post. Aides apparently rushed to convince him not to blow up the negotiations on a whim.

The episode is remarkable not only for Trump’s lack of concern with basic negotiation strategy — generally making impulsive demands out of nowhere after weeks of sensitive talks is not the best way to succeed — but also for the timing. Trump lost the election in November, but as I have previously written, it was a very close thing indeed in the key Electoral College states.
