Do you really disagree with that statement? Seems self-evident to me.
The Republican party stopped promoting conservatism a long time ago. It is now a party which promotes the worst of corporatism forgetting entirely the conservative understanding of the middle class as backbone of society. Trump may not wish to tell it as it is Mr. Lowery, but as one living in the belly of the beast, he is I know he is telling it like it is and Americans need to hear it.
