As Trump turned to Democrats for a second time in two weeks, Republicans were left stunned while his base howled in anger. What is his strategy?
“He likes us,” Chuck Schumer said. “He likes me, anyway.”
The Democratic minority leader, talking with glee to his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell, was caught by a live microphone on the Senate floor.

If you have to step just in one direction, you’re boxed.’ He gets that.”
