Rush Limbaugh thinks the best bet for President Trump to secure long-term political security is to accelerate his public policy agenda.

Millions of listeners who tuned into “The Rush Limbaugh Show” on Wednesday heard the famous conservative give advice that he says will thwart an “Obama shadow government” while simultaneously cementing voters’ support.


The “shadow government” remark was a reference to individuals responsible for a spate of leaks related to the president’s private conversations, along with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russia.

“If I’ve had one person ask me, I’ve had a thousand — ‘What should Trump do, Rush? What can he do? What can we do? How can we stop this?’” the radio host said. “Just focus on repealing Obamacare, and then focus on tax reform, and then just move full-speed ahead on the domestic agenda. Make tracks.”

Mr. Limbaugh said the commander in chief should act transparently but with urgency.

“None of this, ‘Oh, man, I don’t know, two years.’ Just do it!” the conservative commentator said. “If Trump would engage at full speed on his domestic agenda, which is why he was elected, then his people will stay with him no matter what this Obama shadow government tries. And his people is all Trump has. He doesn’t have the media with him like Obama did. He has the media trying to destroy him. Trump has his voters. There are 60 some-odd million people that voted for Trump. In a Gallup poll today, 62 percent said they believe Trump is honest and is trying to keep his promises.”

The host said Mr. Trump should remind skittish Republicans that his voters gave the party political leverage the party would otherwise not enjoy.
