For the first time as president, Donald Trump faces a divided government, with Democrats running the House of Representatives. But they face a divide of their own between veteran leaders like Speaker Pelosi and a new generation.  Trump may also face a split, with Republican senators up for reelection in purple states less willing to toe the line. Will they take a cue from Mitt Romney? As the rest of the world looks on, we’ll hear a formula for new leadership by America’s allies in place of Trump’s Washington.
