In case you missed it, the $60 billion L.A.-to-San Francisco bullet train launch date has been delayed… again. This time by three years to 2025. Some say this opens the door for alternative transportation technology like the Hyperloop. But it really opens the door just a crack wider for Donald Trump.
Let me explain why, starting with a question: Do you think the "Make America Great Again" slogan is really just about restricting immigration, imposing harsh tariffs, and insulting women? Maybe it is for some people, but it's unwise and inaccurate to write off Trump's enduring voter support as simply a case of stubborn American racism, xenophobia, and misogyny. Sorry, but even if every latent Ku Klux Klan member in the U.S. was supporting Trump that wouldn't be enough voters to give him primary victories in places like Michigan and New Hampshire.
