Jennifer Rubin on Populism


Last quote by Jennifer Rubin on Populism

Last week, the creaky facade of Trumpism came tumbling down as Americans saw for themselves that, at bottom, President Trump’s populism isn’t about economic theory, trade policy or foreign policy. It is an ugly effort to stoke white grievance, convincing working-class whites that their problems are attributable to non-whites who are out to take their jobs and destroy their culture. With Stephen K. Bannon’s departure, even the pretense of economic populism is likely to shrivel, leaving a weird mix of right-wing supply-side economics and nativism - combining, for example, big tax cuts for the rich with virulent opposition to immigration. For policy wonks, this is distressing and destructive; for average Americans, the stench of Charlottesville tends to obscure the policy
