More than 80% of the people of France—ordinary working people, not the professional bureaucrate class—support the “gilets jaunes,” the yellow vests in the street protesting against the globalist policies of Emmanuel Macron, defender of the mega-wealthy and upholder of EU progressivism.
Donald Trump’s campaign was framed as a fight against the globalists. He was going to get rid of NAFTA and TPP. He was going to drain the swamp. He promised to be a noninterventionist in foreign affairs.
Since becoming president, he’s done none of these things.
