Halfway through an interview in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump is asked if he regrets any of his abrasive tweets about allies, political opponents and the state of the world. Mr Trump pauses, momentarily: “I don’t regret anything, because there is nothing you can do about it. You know if you issue hundreds of tweets, and every once in a while you have a clinker, that’s not so bad.”The Trump presidency is like no other in the 230-year history of the American Republic.
After seven years of trying to repeal Barack Obama’s healthcare reforms, Republicans in the House of Representatives marked Thursday’s passage of a bill to replace Obamacare with a White House celebration at which President Donald Trump hailed “an incredible victory”. Democrats celebrated too, singing, “Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye!” at their rivals in the chamber.
