Trump’s Legacy

I’ve read a sampling of op-ed pieces, letters, and analyses trying to explain why over 70 million people voted for Trump. None of them I’ve seen acknowledge that Trump is manifestly a dangerous, destructive, demagogic sociopath. Supporting Trump is supporting nihilism. As Peter Wehner, writing for The Atlantic, notes, Trump will leave behind “a nihilistic political culture, one that is tribalistic, distrustful, and sometimes delusional, swimming in conspiracy theories.”
