For once, a Trump Administration official has sad something that’s easy to believe, and that is backed by over a century of abundant evidence:

“Our values around freedom, human dignity, the way people are treated—those are our values. Those are not our policies.”

“Donald Trump is not a DC insider, he is part of the wealthy ruling elite of the United States, and he is gathering around him a spectrum of other rich people and several idiosyncratic personalities. They do not by themselves form an existing structure, so it is a weak structure which is displacing and destabilizing the pre-existing central power network within DC. It is a new patronage structure which will evolve rapidly, but at the moment its looseness means there are opportunities for change in the United States: change for the worse and change for the better.”
