I am largely in concurrence with this essay. My question to many of Trump’s ideological detractors on the left has been “Putting his tweets and his ill-thought-out-but-temporary immigration ban aside, what has Trump done that any other Republican woudn’t have done?”

As I see it, the answer is “not much”. The answer is that he’s been a pretty by the book, garden variety Republican president, and the vitriol that comes at him from the SJW’s for things he says which they allege are racist are all simply matters of interpretation.
