The Case Against Trump

The case against Donald Trump. By Ryan Cooper
Excerpt: Donald Trump would be an absolute disaster of a president — so bad it's almost impossible to grasp. But allow me to try.... Trump constantly (and inadvertently) reveals his staggering ignorance of the most basic facts of government and recent history. Trump didn't knowthat Russia had annexed Crimea. He didn't know what Brexit was. He didn't know that the Trans-Pacific Partnership does not include China. He is very obviously a guy who gets his news from half-watching cable TV and the racists in his Twitter mentions. When he does talk policy, his positions shift on a daily basis: First he wasagainst huge tax cuts for the rich, then he was for them even more than his primary opponents. First he was against raising the minimum wage, then he was for it, then he said it should be up to the states. First he said Japanshould have nuclear weapons, then they shouldn't. And on, and on, and on.
