Not just an act?
Trump is back on solid ground after
either (1) allowing new adviser Manafort to get out of control, or (2) letting Manafort play a head-fake. Can't tell which.
In any case, his foreign policy speech today is a clear and solid and consistent statement of POPULISM. Everything must be calibrated to the INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,
not to the interests of BANKS or CORPORATIONS or SOME OTHER FUCKING COUNTRY.
That is exactly and totally what Popul
ism means. Jennings Bryan would approve. Bob Taft would approve.
