I don't think that anyone can completely drain the swamp, it is simply impossible given all of the intrigue in Washington. Trump would be better off trying to control it as much as possible. As far as out representative go, I agree we have to hammer them more to get them behind Trump so things can get done.
I've actually literally "Drained a Swamp"... as in a piece of land periodically flooded by marshy water.
It never Stays Drained. It never gets completely dry.
But it can be made useful, for things other than being a wet-land, or at least pieces of it can.
I am a realist. I do not expect perfection, I aim to reform, protect and conserve.
I have, it can be done! It's good to have a backhoe and a ditch witch is a plus!
