Professor Musgrave comments on the Trump administration

Paul Musgrave writes a column in The Washington Post about what he calls Trumpology, “the tales that feed liberal fears while diverting attention from the less exhilarating but far grimmer structural realities of American politics.” Overall, Musgrave says, the instinct to seek hidden motivations and speculations about what really is driving President Donald J. Trump’s actions and words actually is not helpful in dealing the reality of his policies and statements and the repercussions they are creating in the country and the world. Washington Post, 5/15/18
