Darrell Delamaide’s Political Capital: Trump will play Congress like a fiddle

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The full scope of Hillary Clinton’s loss and Donald Trump’s victory will become apparent this week as the newly elected Congress convenes.

We all know the Republicans swept the elections, winning the White House and retaining control of both houses of Congress.

But it is where these victories came from and how they were made that tells us what will happen in the two years this 115th Congress will have until midterm elections in 2018.

There is obviously a great deal of overlap between Trump’s campaign pledges and the standing agenda of congressional Republicans under House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
