In the 2016 race, June belonged to two outsiders who could not be more dissimilar.Bernie Sanders is a socialist senator from Vermont and Donald Trump a celebrity capitalist and legendary entrepreneur and builder.
What do they have in common? Both have tapped into what the bases of their respective parties believe is wrong with America.
Bernie is the Willie Nelson of national politics, a leftist voice of a working class whose jobs and factories have been exported and whose wages have stagnated as banksters and the Davos-Doha crowd amass mammoth fortunes by playing games of three-dimensional Monopoly. The 73-year-old Sanders may have no chance of beating Hillary. But the size of his crowds testifies that he speaks for millions.
Trump’s success comes from the issues he has seized upon – illegal immigration and trade deals that deindustrialized America – and brazen defiance of Republican elites and a media establishment. By now the whole world has heard Trump’s declaration: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
”Politically incorrect? You betcha.Yet, is Trump not raising a valid issue? Is there not truth in what he said? Is not illegal immigration, and criminals crossing our Southern border, an issue of national import, indeed, of national security?
Women and girls crossing Mexico on trains are raped by gangs. The “coyotes” leading people illegally across the U.S. border include robbers, rapists and killers, who often leave these people to die in the desert.
