Populist Voices Increasingly Outnumbered in Trump White House
-- Many of President Donald Trump’s populist supporters saw his authorization of an air strike on Syria to be a betrayal of the populist, non-interventionist foreign policy on which he campaigned.
Moreover, they believe the reversal to be a result of the influence of the globalists in Trump’s inner circle. Now they fear a similar reversal on Trump’s promises of a populist economic agenda.
Trump has surrounded himself with a variety of voices with a variety of economic opinions — some populist, some globalist, some in-between — and Trump’s entire economic plan could very well depend on which of those voices wins out.
