Another quality pick. Seems to meet many of the qualifications to be on the Trump cabinet - expressed belief in hackneyed conspiracy theories, disregard for facts, and support of pushers of alt-right agendas, professional incompetence.. Reassuring that Trump will be getting such clear minded advise on national security matters.

In my opinion, economic anxiety and racism are so codependent in our culture that they are hard to separate. The economic data quoted would seem to suggest the dominant influence of racialist attitudes, but the election may reflect perceptions of a lack of economic insecurity that transcends actual income. As mentioned, not all the data is in. However, This does not obviate the significant role ethnic stereotypes played, or the high degree of support for Trump by white nationalists here and abroad..

The same upper class free trade regime that drove many Americans to the politics of the right, is being experienced overseas. As "middle class" labor feels abandoned, it is increasingly turning to fascist rhetoric and nationalistic ideology.. We have seen this historically in times of economic upheaval. Historically, Nazism and fascism have been MIDDLE CLASS movements, bent on the perception of needing to restore the country to a previous time of the middle class's prosperity. In Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and Hungary we have seen how demagogues exploited this national angst, further undermined confidence in prevailing institutions and norms, consolidated power, and in the case of the latter 3, suppressed descent, and formed a dictatorship. A common denominator of these movements was the ascribing of much of the middle class' problems to ethnic/religious minorities. Is history repeating itself?
