A Reformist Confronts Trump

These days Noah Millman writes for the American Conservative, even though he no longer considers himself a conservative. He says that the old left/right divide, and the two parties that equate to it, is simply not providing the answers we need. In other words, he likes to see himself as a critic of the American system in a very deep sense. But then along comes Trump:
And the other point is that Trump’s blustery, impetuous approach to these matters is prompting people like me, who should be arguing against the Washington consensus, instead to argue that it’s too risky to break with that consensus, at least in the Trumpian manner.

If he says this, this man was never a critic of the DC consensus.
