President Donald Trump was not the favourite of the media or the Political Class during the campaign and his treatment has not improved since the election. He has not simply been demonised; he has been derided as an economically and politically illiterate oaf.
As their Tory counterparts are doing here with regard to Brexit, which they are determined to water down as much as they can. In which they appear to be succeeding. It is depressing, but not surprising, that Teresa May, who unlike Donald Trump was not elected on any sort of populist platform (or at all, in fact!) is now talking about “making globalisation work post-Brexit” (a bit like making turkeys work post-Christmas Dinner!).
