Thanks Caitlin for one of the few objective articles I’ve seen on Medium. Usually it is just self pitying wails from people claiming they are ashamed of being white / southern / from a country that elected Trump.cream “ME TOO” And then a lot of people piling into the comment thread to s I can’t really give an opinion on the content of your article because I’m British, but you shine a lot of light on the depth of corruption and cronyism in U.S. politics.
Trump’s biggest mistake was his promise to “drain the swamp,” which he should not have made without first checking how deep the swamp it. My guess? If it’s anything like the British one, it is bottomless.
