People who voted for Donald Trump were voting for change. For that matter, that’s what the people who voted for Barack Obama were voting for in 2008. But Obama changed nothing, and it looks like Trump won’t either. At least not the things that really matter.
Trump has appointed as many neocons, war hawks, and insiders to his administration as Barack Obama or G.W. Bush–maybe more. His promotion of Obamacare 2.0 was a total embarrassment to everything he campaigned for. He twisted the arms of House and Senate conservatives as much as Bush used to do–maybe more so. Thankfully, the House Freedom Caucus stood like Stonewall Jackson and refused to compromise their convictions. They made Trump look like a total wuss.
