The US President's primary pitch had less to do with giving people money or security than it was about vengeance. Trump exploited the anger we feel when we are slighted or taken for granted, turning the politics of a sophisticated democracy into something more like a blood feud.

It was a scam, of course, but wherever there is indignation, lies and stupidity abound."@en ;
