Selected Articles: Does Donald Trump Have a Strategy?


President Trump: Big Liar Going to Washington or Tribune of the People?

By Prof. John McMurtry, November 10 2016

On the face of it, Trump is an ideal leader for US empire. He is like Ronald Reagan on steroids. His long practiced camera image, his nativist  US supremacism, his down-home talk, and  his reality-show confidence all go one better. He is America come to meet itself decades down the road as its pride slips away in third-world conditions. But unlike Reagan and Bush who spoke to the rich becoming richer, Trump speaks to the losing white working class and those who have come to hate the money-corrupted Washington forging the policies of dispossession Reagan started.

Why Trump Won; Why Clinton Lost

By Robert Parry, November 10 2016

In the end, Hillary Clinton became the face of a corrupt, arrogant and out-of-touch Establishment, while Donald Trump emerged as an almost perfectly imperfect vessel for a populist fury that had bubbled beneath the surface of America.


The Working Class Won the Election? What Kind of Trump Administration?

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, November 10 2016

The US presidential election is historic, because the American people were able to defeat the oligarchs.  Hillary Clinton, an agent for the Oligarchy, was defeated despite the vicious media campaign against Donald Trump.  This shows that the media and the political establishments of the political parties no longer have credibility with the American people.

By The New Atlas, November 10 2016

With the victory of Donald Trump during the 2016 US presidential elections, many commentators, analysts and academics have “predicted” a more isolationist America.
