Editor at conservative journal: Trumpism has become something ‘between a business and a racket’

Joseph Choi of The Hill –

Pedro Gonzalez, an assistant editor at the conservative publication American Greatness wrote that Trumpism has progressed past being a movement and has become something “between a business and a racket.”

Appearing on Hill.TV’s “Rising,” host Saager Enjeti asked Gonzalez what the current state of Trumpism in the U.S. was, noting that although former President Trump had partially defined it as great trade deals, one of the candidates he has endorsed, Jerry Moran (R-Kans.), has openly spoken out against some of Trump’s trade practices.

“Well, Eric Hoffer, a 20th Century working-class intellectual, once wrote that every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business and eventually degenerates into a racket. And unfortunately, I think the Trump movement is somewhere between a business and a racket. In other words, a grift,” Gonzalez said.
