[OP-ED]: Donald Trump’s lost opportunity

 07/26/2017 - 09:12
Donald Trump could have quickly begun reshaping American politics. He heard voices that others didn’t, understood what those people wanted to hear and articulated much of it. But when it came time to deliver, it turned out that he had no serious ideas, policies, nor even the desire to search for them. EFE

There are many ways to evaluate the Trump presidency at the six-month mark. What I am struck by is the path not taken, the lost opportunity. Donald Trump had many flaws, but during the campaign, he tapped into a real set of problems facing America and a deep frustration with the existing political system. Additionally, he embraced and expressed -- somewhat inconsistently -- a populism that went beyond the traditional left-right divide. What would things look like at this point if President Trump had governed in the manner of a pragmatic, jobs-oriented reformer who was relentlessly focused on the “forgotten” Americans of whom he often speaks?

[OP-ED]: La oportunidad perdida de Donald Trump

 07/26/2017 - 09:08
Donald Trump podría haber rápidamente comenzado a reformar la política estadounidense. Escuchó voces que otros no escucharon, entendió lo que esas personas querían escuchar y articuló la mayor parte. No obstante, cuando llegó el tiempo de dar, sucedió que no tenía ideas ni políticas serias, ni siquiera el deseo de buscarlas. EFE

Hay varias maneras de evaluar la presidencia de Trump luego de seis meses. Lo que más me asombra es el camino no tomado, la oportunidad perdida. Donald Trump tuvo muchos defectos pero durante la campaña sacó provecho de una serie de problemas reales enfrentando a Estados Unidos y a una profunda frustración con el sistema político existente. Adicionalmente, aceptó y expresó, un poco inconstantemente, un populismo que fue más allá de la división tradicional izquierda-derecha. ¿Cómo se verían las cosas ahora si el presidente Trump hubiese gobernado como un reformador pragmático orientado al trabajo que se enfocase sin descanso en los estadounidenses “olvidados” de los cuales usualmente habla?

The healthcare reform proposed by President Donald Trump to "repeal and replace" ObamaCare, and which was narrowly approved by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, would leave 23 million people without healthcare coverage over the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.

Acabar con la ley sanitaria de Barack Obama fue la gran promesa de campaña de Donald Trump, tanto que se ha convertido también en el gran fracaso de sus primeros 100 días en la Presidencia de EE.UU., al haber sido incapaz de alcanzar un acuerdo entre los propios republicanos para cumplir su palabra.

A House Divided: Why the Republican healthcare bill was doomed and what to do next?

Backing off from their key campaign promise marks a big defeat for both Ryan and the president, who’d pushed hard for the bill and then pressed for a vote on it. Trump is now presenting himself as a bystander to the loss, and Republican voters may well side with him.

The vote on the bill was previously scheduled for Thursday but the lack of consensus among conservatives has postponed the process. If the legislation fails, there won’t be another effort to make good on the flagship Republican promise to replace Obama’s Affordable Care Act, Trump said.
