You could say that Pat Buchanan was Donald Trump before Donald Trump.
On the three biggest issues, immigration, trade and foreign wars, Buchanan has been perfectly aligned on Trump’s side and now he says Trump needs to stick to his guns and don’t back down to the Washington DC beltway elites or these violent, insane protesters.
Buchanan writes in WND:
“In victory, magnanimity!” said Winston Churchill.
Donald Trump should be magnanimous and gracious toward those whom he defeated this week, but his first duty is to keep faith with those who put their faith in him.
The protests, riots and violence that have attended his triumph in city after city should only serve to steel his resolve.
As for promptings that he “reach out” and “reassure” those upset by his victory, and trim or temper his agenda to pacify them, Trump should reject the poisoned chalice. This is the same old con.
Trump should take as models the Democrats FDR and LBJ.
Franklin Roosevelt, who had savaged Herbert Hoover as a big spender, launched his own New Deal in his first 100 days.
History now hails his initiative and resolve.
That’s right! We want to see Trump stand up to these loons and fight for the American people!
