What a strange new world the American political machine exists in these days.
It was only six months ago that we had a President who, for lack of a nicer way to put it, wouldn’t stop yapping. Donald Trump was an extraordinary communicator, using Twitter almost reflexively throughout his time in the White House, and sparring with reporters any chance he got.
