How many times since 2016 have you read something that goes like this: “Although not a fan of Donald Trump, I voted for him”? That’s pretty much how Angelo Codevilla starts his assessment of the Trump/Putin Helsinki summit – an assessment that sharply contrasts with the “obloquy by which the bipartisan U.S. ruling class showcases […]
Writing at The American Conservative, Pat Buchanan explains that despite the media hysteria, President Trump is “deregulating the economy, cutting taxes, appointing record numbers of federal judges, reshaping the Supreme Court,” and most grating to America’s elites “intends to carry out his campaign pledge to improve relations with Russia.” Trump is attempting to reshape foreign […]
