Paul Craig Robert — Trump’s Declaration of War

President Trump’s brief inaugural speech was a declaration of war against the entirety of the American Ruling Establishment. All of it.
Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.
If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China....

Putin was able to rout the oligarchs in Russia. It will be interesting to see if Trump can do the same here.

Trump is (or would like to be) an oligarch.

Noah, I've called Trump a wannabe oligarch. He's been wanting to be in that club for a long time. He might even screw that up in his presidency. Look at how much debt he owes to all these banks.

Do you think ISIS will be given credit for his assassination?
