The Basic Division

The American Interest website writes anonymous home truth about what divides us as Americans. Hat tip to Instapundit Glenn Reynolds for the link.
The basic division in American politics today is not over the merits of President Trump.(snip)The division is between those who think that before Trump, things were going just fine and the American elite was doing an excellent job, and those who blame the rise of Trump on the failures and blindness of the so-called “meritocratic elite” who, they would argue, have been running the country into the ground.
I agree with their diagnosis if not with their qualms about Team Trump. On its performance, in my view, the verdict will remain out for the next year or two. Let's see what they can do.
