[T]he US, the world’s leading democracy, elected a con artist and would-be dictator as its president. Although Trump has toned down his rhetoric since he was elected, he has changed neither his behavior nor his advisers. His cabinet comprises incompetent extremists and retired generals...Folks, we are in a battle between crazed billionaires. Neither offers an advancement toward general liberty but they are both right about the other.
Trump will prefer making deals to defending principles. Unfortunately, that will be popular with his core constituency.
