I’m no fan of Donald Trump’s naked appeals to white nationalism, his checkered business record, and his chaotic approach to policy. But Trump’s economic address last week at the Detroit Economic Club did contain several sound proposals—most importantly, on tax reform—ideas that shouldn’t be dismissed simply because they came from a deeply flawed messenger.

The Republican National Convention set “Make America Safe Again” as its opening day theme. To millions of viewers on TV, and tens of thousands in Cleveland, the GOP had an opportunity to lay out its vision of how to strengthen America at home and abroad. But the Trumpified GOP had only two policy proposals last night: Deport more Mexicans, and kill more Muslims.

As Donald Trump continues to embroil himself in noxious controversies, many pundits are asking why we’re not seeing more prominent Republicans disavow Donald Trump. One reason matters more than people think: that they can’t dump Trump without alienating a significant number of the people who elected them.

Last night at the Republican National Convention, one guy delivered the most articulate and effective case for President Donald Trump that you’ll ever hear. And it wasn’t Paul Ryan or Chris Christie, but Donald Trump Jr.
