Endless war and tales of imminent destruction by a legion of enemies may no longer be a good look for Israel. More importantly, Bibi started to lose Sheldon Adelson a few years ago, and now it's worse.
Trump faces unusual challenges in the 2020 re-election campaign he's spending a billion dollars to win. The GOP leadership is as fragmented about Trump populism as they were in 2016. Promises have been kept by the Trump administration, but the shiny best-sellers – the Wall, an America First non-interventionist foreign policy, and a strong economy – are looking a little fusty. There will be pictures of a wall, and neocons have been removed from the NSC and at State but not Pompeo yet – although as a comic foil for a reasonable President you can't do better! The economy needs actual free trade, we the people need a lot smaller government, and both need some End the Fed action. An actual major withdrawal of troops from the Middle East is going to be a big part of Trump's 2020 campaign, and his aggressiveness in this area has given the deep state cause for concern.
