“Note that it is Trump’s campaign, not the man himself, to which Kirkpatrick directs our attention. In office, Trump has flinched from implementing the policies that seemed implied by his campaign rhetoric. Some of his failures are due to his enemies, but he has only himself to blame for failing to tax remittances and calling for increased legal immigration. Kirkpatrick is probably correct that Trump will prove a transitional figure, while his electoral strategy will provide the inspiration for more consistent nationalists in the years ahead.”

Right. While Trump has failed to follow through on some of his promises, “the idea of Trump” is a good one and it will continue onward regardless.
