Oh, please. Trump is a rich white man who favors Christians and advancing corporate interests.
Trump is the epitome of Republican "establishment".
"[Donald] Trump is the epitome of Republican "establishment"."
Many American political analysts (both Democrats and Republicans) strongly dispute Vivify's cocksure position.
"Donald Trump Completes Hostile Takeover of Washington, Puts Both Parties on Notice"
"THE BIG IDEA: President Trump completed his hostile takeover of the Republican Party
last July, and on Friday he completed his hostile, if temporary, takeover of Washington."
Can Vivify comprehend what 'hostile takeover of the Republican Party' means?
"No president has ever before referred to “the establishment” in his inaugural address ..."
Donald Trump has no love of the Republican Party 'establishment', which aimed to block his nomination.
"The last time a Republican was president, Trump was still a registered Democrat."
Did being a rather recently registered Democrat enhance Donald Trump as 'the epitome
of the Republican 'establishment'" (to quote Vivify)?
"His [Donald Trump's] improbable success should be viewed mainly as the triumph of
an independent populist who used the splintered GOP as a vehicle to win power."
I loathe both US President Trump and the Republican Party establishment.
But I am not ignorant or foolish enough to believe that they must be the same thing.
