Trump is apparently considering changing his proposed immigration strategy, backing off mass deportation and discussing a path to citizenship.
Of all the things to flip on, this one I don't understand. People who held his old stance against him are not going to come around and vote for him now. Many of his supporters loved that stance, and it's going to drain enthusiasm. Not that I expect competency from this campaign, but this is a deviation from what appeared to be his core strategy.
I've no clue how accurate this piece is but it presents a pretty bleak outlook on the alt-right contingent supporting Trump. So I'll assume there's plenty of exaggeration, but nonetheless..
Seven years before Donald Trump descended on an escalator in his office building to announce his candidacy, Yarvin declared that his ideal form of regime would be a “sovereign corporation” and that America “needs a CEO.”
In alt-right discourse, “white” is often erroneously conflated with “Western civilization,” so that all of the latter’s achievements can be attributed to the virtues of a particular race rather than a universalist set of ideas. When I once asked on Twitter what constituted “white culture” (in response to a horde of alt-right commenters demanding to know why white people did not have the same right to “protect” their “culture” as other groups), I was instantly bombarded with images obviously found by typing “renaissance cathedral” or “Vatican” into Google Image, along with YouTube videos of Handel’s “Messiah.”
Apparently Ann Coulter released a book entitled "In Trump We Trust" this week. She states at one point in the book that "there's nothing Trump can do that can't be forgiven, except change his immigration policies."
Perfect timing! She went on a huge rant on Twitter as he talked through his supposed pivot.
