This fellow Josiah Lippincott takes Angelo Codevilla to task for his essay, “What is Trump to Us?” His point is that despite whatever failures Trump had in his term in office without him there would be no populist movement. He does a pretty good job of defending this idea and reminds us of who would be the conservative political team if Donald Trump hadn’t appeared on the scene, guys like Marco Rubio.
One of the more interesting ideas that he presents is the idea that Trump should run for Liz Cheney’s house seat and then become Speaker of the House if the Republicans recapture the House of Representatives. That’s a pretty wild idea. I like it. Can you imagine Trump mocking Nancy Pelosi from the Speaker’s lectern? Anyway I like his point of view. Sure I’d love to see DeSantis step up and start to push our agenda forward but until he does something revolutionary we still have to remember that without Trump none of this would even exist.
