Wall Street’s love affair with Trump cools as healthcare bill sows welcome doubts

US president’s failure to win backing for his repeal of Obamacare has delivered a dose of reality to the markets

Wall Street’s uncritical love affair with Donald Trump is over. For five months, traders have swallowed whole the idea that the president would swiftly get a package of tax cuts through a Republican-dominated Congress, giving a boost to growth and corporate profits in the process.

Yet the first real test of Trump’s ability to get lawmakers to do his bidding – the repeal of Obamacare – has been a disaster. The resistance on Capitol Hill has left the financial markets wondering when – and indeed whether – Trump will be able to deliver on his fiscal boost.

On Friday, not with a final stand but with an ignominious retreat, the modern Republican party died. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan had to pull the Republicans’ repeal of America’s Affordable Care Act before members of his own party killed it. That legislative defeat was the moment Republican ideology engaged in its first real battle with reality, and reality won. The Republican party can never again be the same.

Since 1980, Republican leadership has embraced the draconian goal of dismantling the New Deal state.
