This is said so well that I have to repeat it here, taken from THE IRONY OF TRUMP’S APPEAL.
Trump didn’t sell out his supporters. In fact, his presidency saw something extraordinary, even if it was all but invisible from the country’s globalized cities: the first egalitarian boom since well back into the twentieth century. In 2019, the last non-Covid year, he presided over an average 3.7 percent unemployment rate and 4.7 percent wage growth among the lowest quartile of earners. All income brackets increased their take. That had happened in the last three Obama years, too. The difference is that in the Obama part of the boom, the income of the top decile rose by 20 percent, with tiny gains for other groups. In the Trump economy, the distribution was different. Net worth of the top 10 percent rose only marginally, while that of all other groups vaulted ahead. In 2019, the share of overall earnings going to the bottom 90 percent of earners rose for the first time in a decade.
Other than PDT, virtually everyone you vote for today is in it for themselves. Trump is from the same era I am, the 1960s, where these really were the outcomes we all wanted. Now we get Daniel Andrews and their useless “globalist” socialist swindlers instead. Biden and Clinton are rapacious thieves who could not care less who knows it. If some political “leader” is for “green energy” then you know whose side they are really on. Their own and not yours.
