Q: Is Trump learning early in his Presidency about the limitations on his power?

A: This is a huge defeat for Trump, not only in this specific case. It sets down a marker for this Administration: whatever you want to do on domestic or foreign policy, you can’t just steamroller this across the courts. I think people in Congress will take note of this as well.

But will the President learn from this? No, absolutely not. Donald Trump will keep on being Donald Trump.
