Janerik Larsson:Trump sammanfattad

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, second left, stands with West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, left, U.S. President Ronald Reagan, second right, and Britain's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher at London's Buckingham Palace, in this June 10, 1984, file photo. Reagan, the cheerful crusader who devoted his presidency to winning the Cold War, trying to scale back government and making people believe it was ”morning again in America,'' died Saturday, June 5, 2004, after a long twilight struggle with Alzheimer's disease. He was 93.

I en krönika i New York Times om läget efter att Trump i Orlando, Florida lanserat sin återvalskampanj - valdag 3 november 2020 - sammanfattar han träffsäkert vad som hänt med det republikanska partiet, det parti han arbetat för under tre republikanska administrationer, så här:

Mr. Trump has flipped the Republican Party from outward looking to inward looking, from the champion of an open society into the cheerleader of a closed one, from optimism to pessimism. (It’s a long road to travel to get from “Morning in America” to “American carnage.”) A party that once claimed to abhor “identity politics” now relies on them as its closing argument in elections.
