No question tax reform remains the President’s top priority. Trump’s courting of Democrats should not be a surprise. Either he is doing it to pressure Republicans, to keep the Media off balance or to soften Democrats. All of those reasons are good politics at this point given the success rate of Republicans in Congress. Trump knows it’s tax reform or bust.
