The Other Good Fight

Has President Trump ended the war on the Swamp?
The president wants to play it safe. Every Republican senator is one potential ally he desperately needs, even if that senator is with him only half of the time.

Politically it's smart -- and yet another sign that Trump is quickly developing into a more or less generic Republican president with regards to the policies he pursues. It also means that his e has officially ended.

He has learned what many other outsiders who come to Washington learn really fast: you can't be successful and fight The Swamp at the same time. It just doesn't happen. The best you can hope for is that you replace the establishment's leadership one by one.

So yes, Trump's war on The Swamp has ended, but the end of this war may very well enable him to actually get stuff done.
Along with his highly touted immigration discussion, this may not make him popular with some in his base, but it could help him elsewhere...
