Haar boek is getiteld "What happened?". Ik zag een interview met Adam Gopnik van oa The New Yorker (links blad) en die zei dat het had moeten heten: What the fuck did I do wrong.
Michael Moore (https://michaelmoore.com/trumpwillwin/) die het allemaal heeft zien aankomen over de rustbelt states: "When Trump stood in the shadow of a Ford Motor factory during the Michigan primary, he threatened the corporation that if they did indeed go ahead with their planned closure of that factory and move it to Mexico, he would slap a 35% tariff on any Mexican-built cars shipped back to the United States. It was sweet, sweet music to the ears of the working class of Michigan, and when he tossed in his threat to Apple that he would force them to stop making their iPhones in China and build them here in America, well, hearts swooned and Trump walked away with a big victory that should have gone to the governor next-door, John Kasich.
From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats who still try to talk a good line but are really just looking forward to rub one out with a lobbyist from Goldman Sachs who’ll write them nice big check before leaving the room. "
Die slechte economische situatie hebben de Democraten genegeerd en nu hebben we trump, hiephoi......
