Learning From Trump in Retrospect
Mike Konczal

Yes, but…

What happens if he doesn’t deliver on his promises in a very specific manner? You discuss that he demonized Washington and put the blame on them and not “the rich”, but his policies and the ones that the GOP congress will put on his desk will only benefit the rich while doing nothing to improve the economic condition of the white working class — that is, tax cuts for the rich and less regulation will not open new coal mines, or bring back manufacturing jobs. Perhaps a steady stream of Breitbart and Fox News stories highlighting unworthy “types” being denied gov’t benefits or being humiliated by the police state will entertain them for a time, but there will ultimately need to be some bread with these circuses, no?
