David A. Graham: Trump Has Quietly Accomplished More Than It Appears

“Imagine, if you will, that there is a shadow government. The actual government, the administration of Donald Trump, is coming off the worst week of his presidency, although there haven’t been any smooth weeks. … Things are going considerably better for the shadow government. With the Trump administration’s chaos sucking up all the attention, it’s been able to move forward on a range of its priorities, which tend to be more focused on regulatory matters anyway.” (The Atlantic)
