Donald Trump was blunt, saying his Presidency is going to be about taking power away from the Washington Politicians and giving it back to the people.
I’d like to say, Amen.
But is Donald Trump really a populist crusader? Or is he a pragmatist who simply decided anti-Washington populism was the train to ride to the White House?
The marriage between our nation’s financial elites and Washington Politicians rests on a combination of money and legislation – and there’ll be plenty of legislation weaving its way through Congress this session to prove that alliance is still in place.
Is Trump a populist? Or a skilled pragmatist using populism?
With those bills weaving their way through Congress, it shouldn’t be long before we have an answer.
