The Globalists Have Fallen

When the Dow Jones industrial average closed at a record high on Jan. 26, it looked like the reigning wisdom about Donald Trump and his presidency might be all wrong: Trump had sold himself to voters as a fire-breathing nationalist eager to rip up trade deals, stick it to Wall Street, and impose Steve Bannon-style protectionism.
