Peter Brimelow: "The Trump Report Card—So Far"

   

American Renaissance

The 2017 American Renaissance Conference: "Turning the Tide."

Peter Brimelow, founder and editor of VDARE.com, notes that “Whatever one thinks of Donald Trump, he gets a full ‘A’ simply for not being Hillary Clinton.” President Clinton “would have gone full Merkel:” open borders, refugees en masse, more executive amnesties, and new horrors on the Supreme Court. Instead of Neil Gorsuch, we would have had another Sonia Sotomayor, and if the Court can find same-sex marriage in the Constitution, it can find anything. A President Clinton would surely have pushed for hate-speech laws and draconian gun control.

Mr. Brimelow makes no excuses for Donald Trump’s shortcomings, however. He notes how erratic and egotistical he is, but points out that unlike a prime minister in a parliamentary system, he has limited power. “Trump is like electing King Kong,” he says. “You pull back the curtain and there he is—roaring.”

Mr. Brimelow predicts that “there’s a huge showdown coming.” Mr. Trump not only managed a hostile takeover of the GOP, but is now locked in a contest for power with “the entire state, the literal government.” Impeachment—successful or not—could be the climax of this battle. Mr. Brimelow speculates that “Trump didn’t overturn DACA because he knows the courts will do it for him”—a practical if somewhat cowardly approach. “I do think he will build the wall” he adds, “though the wall is mostly symbolic. What I care about is enforcement.”

Mr. Brimelow notes that “in September, Trump gets to set the number of refugees we will take in. He should set it to zero—except for white South Africans.”
