When Trump railed against “the establishment,” his supporters no doubt thought he meant the centrist political class as much as senior party leadership.

I do not think you are correct. The establishment is the two-party system; the tug-of-war between the Republicans and Democrats that ultimately fills their respective coffers first and leaves scraps for the rest of us. “Us” is the people, and “they” are the proverbial fat cats clogging up seats in Congress for 30 years and forcing their favored candidates down our throats every four.

Of course, you would be correct pointing out the irony that a billionaire would be the answer to that problem.
