What Trump “Won’t” Do

Three different headlines all use one word to spell out the Trump agenda

This morning’s headlines about the White House all have one thing in common: they all outline things that President Trump says he “won’t” do.

Trump “won’t” do tax reform before health care reform, which means the legislative agenda in Washington may be delayed for months. Trump also “won’t” back up White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, which raises more White House intrigue. And Trump “won’t” ask FBI Director James Comey to resign, which is a good thing amidst all the Russia investigations.

Check it out all below:

Axios: Trump “won’t” do tax reform until health care is done: Trump told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that he won’t start working on tax reform until the administration passes a new healthcare bill. “It’s been very much misreported that we failed with healthcare. We haven’t failed, we’re negotiating,” said Trump. (He’s been saying “health care first” for weeks, but this shows he’s not budging from that line, even as the House GOP bill remains completely stalled.)

New York Post: Trump “won’t” definitively back up Bannon: Washington’s rumor mill is working overtime on the fate of presidential aide Steve Bannon, who is said to be at the center of the rampant White House infighting. When I asked the president Tuesday afternoon if he still has confidence in Bannon, who took over the campaign in mid-August, I did not get a definitive yes. “I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late,” Trump said. “I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn’t know Steve. I’m my own strategist and it wasn’t like I was going to change strategies because I was facing crooked Hillary.” He ended by saying, “Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will.”

Politico: Trump “won’t” ask for Comey’s resignation: President Donald Trump does not intend to seek the resignation of FBI Director James Comey and did not do so at the outset of his administration “because I want to give everybody a good, fair chance,” he told Fox Business in an interview that aired Wednesday morning.
