President Donald Trump is adopting a new approach to governing after a rocky start to his term.
One adviser told Axios' Mike Allen that after seven months in office, the president finally realized, "people really f---ing hate me."
Trump's decision this week to work with House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, may signal that he's open to pivoting to a different strategy after hovering at record low levels of popularity during his first seven months in office: working across the aisle.
One senior administration official told Axios that Trump's deal with the Democrats had come because "he just wanted to do something popular." The president, famed for his focus on the way he's perceived in the media, reportedly basked in the praise he received from "Morning Joe" after the deal was struck.
Looks like as some of us have always thought...it's about whats best for trumps ego....not America.
