#DrainTheSwamp | #WhatTheyVotedFor
Standing up for, well, someone, #NeverTrump consultant J. G. Collins tries an institutional twist:
The president should clarify the tone of U.S. trade policy and insist that his staff carry it out to ensure U.S. intentions and policies with respect to trade are clear to the world. Reports that Navarro’s influence is on the wane, should deeply trouble the Trump voters. It would mean that the nationalist “drain the swamp” “free but fair” trade rhetoric of the Trump campaign had become “just more of the same” trade policy in the Trump administration.
Let’s hope the latter is not true. It’s not what Americans voted for.
While there are plenty who will harrumph and remind that President Donald Trump is “not what Americans voted for”, that point is a distraction.
