"Perhaps it was fanciful to expect anything more from the G.O.P.’s leaders. After Trump won in November, they made a political deal with him. As long as he pursues their legislative agenda—gutting Obamacare and other government programs, axing regulations, cutting taxes on the wealthy—they are likely to stick with him under almost any circumstances, even as their pact gets ever more Faustian."
"A President enabled by a spineless and supine Congress that fails to exercise its oversight powers isn’t a weak executive at all: he is a potential despot. Using his authority to hire and fire federal officials, he can rapidly remake the government to his own design, appointing loyalists to key positions, eliminating potential threats, and undermining alternative repositories of power."
If Trump ever actually seizes or attempts to seize power, I will enjoy reading the mental gymnastics used by the Trump loyalist in justifying his takeover.
However my best guess is that the Republican Congress will drop him like a hot potato as soon as they no longer need him. (unless he manages to get Ryan, McConnell and other power players wrapped around his finger by then)
