Let’s hear it for President Trump.
He is clearly showing that he has no time for the petty stalling tactics of the party of donkeys.
It appears with his latest decision, if he chooses to use the older Air Force 1, it will come with one minor change.

That will not be a problem with President Trump.
If Democrats do obstruct new Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch GOP senators should trigger the nuclear option to push him through, President Trump said Wednesday.
He said the decision remains with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, but said he wants to see his pick on the bench.
“If we end up with that gridlock, I would say, ‘If you can, Mitch, go nuclear.’
Because that would be an absolute shame if a man of this quality was put up to that neglect,” Mr. Trump said. “I would say it’s up to Mitch, but I would say, ‘Go for it.’”
But it’s unclear whether they’ll be able to earn the votes needed to sustain the filibuster and force the constitutional showdown.
Only one Supreme Court nominee has ever faced a partisan filibuster attempt.
Democrats tried to derail Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. in 2006, but fell short, and he was confirmed.
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Wednesday that Judge Gorsuch will become the second.
The New York Democrat has long dismissed the argument that judges should be evaluated based on their legal credentials rather than on their judicial philosophy.
Mr. Schumer has been unabashed in saying his goal is to force an ideological shift, and said the Gorsuch nomination will be a major test of that.
