“Even as corporate America has unleashed insatiable consumer demand for innovative low-cost goods and technology, it has driven economic trends that continue to increase inequality, stall wage growth and strengthen the power of business. […] Nearly half the country’s voters support a president who embraces upwardly redistributive policies that many of them do not benefit from. Why? Because on race, religion, abortion, LGBTQ rights and immigration, President Trump — unlike previous Republican presidents — has given his voters exactly what they want.”
–Thomas Edsall, in a July 26 New York Times column.
