Why intelligent Americans voted for Trump

They did so, writes Dalrymple,

because they preferred his policy prescriptions to those of his opponent; and to a degree far from universal among modern politicians, he has put, or tried to put, many of his those prescriptions into practice.

Moreover, says Dalrymple, Trump’s policies are rational:

  • it is rational for a country to seek control of who comes into it
  • it is rational for a country to impose an economically advantageous tax régime
  • it is rational for a country to abandon administrative obstacles to progress
