Republican Party Wants Trumpism, Just Without Trump

(Foreign Policy in Focus) – Critics like that anonymous op-ed writer have no problem with how Trump’s actually hurting people. They just want the leader doing it to look more presidential.

The recent anonymous op-ed in The New York Times about the resistance to Trump within his own administration was supposed to reassure the American people. Don’t worry, the writer was saying: We the “steady state” are making sure that an unhinged president doesn’t blow up the world. Behind the scenes, the “adults in the room” are hoodwinking the president so that Americans can sleep soundly at night.

I’m still having trouble sleeping.

The anonymous author, after all, also proudly proclaims that his cohort of semi-dissidents “want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.”
