Bill Black- why did Trump choose to be unpopular?
In addition to the tax cut question that falls into Black's MMT wheelhouse, another campaign promise that would have made him incredibly popular if he'd attempted to deliver on it would be some of that "better and much, much cheaper" health care.
Of course this has never been a serious enterprise. He's a big BSer who can only keep his base happy by locking children up in concentration camps.
As we're finding out, that base does not comprise a majority but it does represent a substantial long term contamination of the body politic..
