In Trump's first two months, he too often behaved as an insurgent and disrupter, rather than a chief executive.The biggest danger to Trump 2.0 is the president's own impulsive, embattled style – which shows most clearly in his handling of the FBI and congressional investigations of Russia's covert action to influence the U.S. election. The best course for Trump (and our system) is for the White House to cooperate with the inquiry, let it run its course – and meanwhile, concentrate on doing the public's business.A better approach for dealing with the inquiry was shown this week by Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and perhaps now his most important adviser.After the nomination of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, a genuine friend of Putin, Kushner apparently concluded Trump didn't need any such back channel.Kushner is apprenticing for the role of Trump's Henry Kissinger. All these qualities strike me as beneficial, so long as Kushner uses them to make Trump a better president who learns how to compromise and govern.
