You Should Really Watch the Trump Gettysburg Address
Longtime readers know that I am not a fan of the Trump candidacy or the rise of populism/progressivism in American politics over the last eight years. There is a great deal that I disagree with Trump on — his connection to Planned Parenthood executives, his anti-immigrant stance, his opposition to free trade.
…but you really need to watch this (fast forward to the 1:35:55 mark).
If you ever wanted to know what a sober, measured, patient version of Trump would have looked like? Here it is.
It’s not my bag, but Trump’s populist message (minus Trump’s ego/lack of discipline/vulgarity etc.) could have actually won the election.

Trump doesn’t back down on his themes, but it is perhaps the most articulate and clear exposition of the Trump movement contra the political left in America.
Run it in the background for 30 minutes. It really is worth your time.
