Once, on Facebook I wrote:
Donald Trump won the Electoral College (though not the popular vote) on the strength of overwhelming support from working-class whites, who feel left behind by a changing economy and society. And they’re about to get their reward — the same reward that, throughout Mr. Trump’s career, has come to everyone who trusted his good intentions. Think Trump University.
Yes, the white working class is about to be betrayed.
Let’s see where these voters are in four years? Will they be materially better? Or will they be brainwashed and battered into accepting that, absence evidence, they are to think they are better off? We’ll see.
