Welcome Trump 2.0

It was a bad week for nationalist ideologues, that surprisingly effective constituency of populists who succeeded in electing Trump 1.0

Syrian regime is out…way out.  It gets an interventionist warning (59 tomahawks)

Russia is out.

China is in.

NATO is in.

Janet Yellen is (maybe) in.

Steve Bannon (fingers crossed) is out.

Finally, the unrelenting campaign rhetoric spewing from Trump 1.0 tweets was (finally) overshadowed by Trump 2.0’s more rational and relevant acts of governance.
