WHY and how did Trump win? It is a question that historians will ponder for decades to come. In his book The Case for Trump, Victor Davis Hanson gives the answer.
Trump was a traditional Republican and he played rough. He was an elite but his authenticity appealed to The Deplorables. And finally, the Democrats were far, far, too far Left.
This interview with Peter Robinson at the Hoover Institution is also fascinating. In it, Victor Davis Hanson shows how Trump went after the Left. Trump wanted to win. Trump also pointed out the rank hypocrisy of the Left and used the Left’s disdain for the voters against them. And all of this from the privileged son of a millionaire from Queens, New York.
This is a rewarding watch.
