"You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – 
which you can never afford to Lose – with the discipline to confront
the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be."

Trump and the Revolt of the ‘Somewheres’

Phil Foster
Trumpism has an essence, and that essence is nationalism. It is bigger than President Trump and certain to outlast his tenure in office.
Mr. Trump’s candidacy began as a furious attack on both the Democratic and Republican political establishments, and a vow to do something neither party had done recently—put “America first.” In both respects, his campaign and presidency have been strikingly similar to the nationalist movements in England and Europe, from Brexit to the euroskeptic governments in Poland, Hungary and Italy, to the neonationalist parties of Germany and France. In each case, the insurgents have claimed that their nation’s political and business leaders are part of an international elite that sacrifices national sovereignty in ways—from free trade and open immigration to murky treaties and remote bureaucracies—that harm many of their countrymen.
Mr. DeMuth is a distinguished fellow at Hudson Institute. A longer version of this essay, “Trumpism, Nationalism and Conservatism,” appears in the Winter issue of the Claremont Review of Books.
Appeared in the March 2, 2019, print edition.
