I took a bit of heat for my post last week criticizing Donald Trump’s focus on ego over policy, so let me take this opportunity to not apologize, and also to double down.
My post was defending Trump against accusations that he is a fan of extremist groups and conspiracy theories. That accusation has come from both Never Trump “conservatives” and the Left, and the allegation is both unfair and untrue. Trump is not and extremist or an ally of extremists. He is actually a pretty mainstream conservative, when you look at the policy he has implemented as President.
