In the January/February of The American Conservative, editor Robert W. Merry (author of President McKinley: Architect of the American Century) gets the blue ribbon for offering all Americans a balanced review of the 2017 accomplishments and failures of President Donald Trump.
Mr. Merry hearkens back to the populist approach of Andrew Jackson and the coalition building and the crafting of political strategy of Richard Nixon. Merry gives a rare and concise look into the skill sets of these two former presidents in comparison to the approach taken today by Donald Trump.
Using the words “governing vacuity,” Robert Merry advises readers of TAC that Trump voters will be big losers if Trump fails to develop “a sophisticated brand of politics, with accompanying attributes of command that can lead a nation out of crisis.”
