If Trump was as smart as some claim, he could do a ton of good for all of us while boosting his approval ratings through the roof.

Populist candidates are wildly popular on both sides of the political spectrum, but each side has a different idea of how government can best help ordinary people. The thing is, Trumpists will applaud anything he does, so he has an unprecedented opportunity to make sweeping policy changes while gaining a ton of support. He could easily flip today, introduce a universal type healthcare plan, and win over everybody. The left would obviously go gaga over it, and his base would fall in line as soon as he tells them to. Rinse and repeat with other policies that he either feigns empathy with, or was on the other side of before running for office. A true win/win situation, but he's too naive to see it.
