So Much for Trump's Populism


Quote:
The merger is complete. As recently as 10 months ago, the Republican Party seemed an uneasy coalition between Paul Ryan conservatives and Donald Trump populists. The conservatives demanded Obamacare repeal, upper-bracket tax cuts, entitlement reform, budget restraint, and a outward-looking American foreign policy. The Trumpists were identified instead with immigration restriction, trade protection, infrastructure investment, an inward-looking foreign policy, and the protection of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. These differences once seemed real, enduring, and momentous. Not any more.

I think Trump wants to build a wall (but not punish those who hire them) and enact trade tariffs or restrictions, but he is too easily influenced by people and/or for all his bluster, too quick to cave. Illegal immigration and job export have been embraced by Congress and their elite backers, and Trump has a lot of people trying to talk him out of it.
