President Trump’s vow to change a “rigged system” helped propel him to victory over stodgy supporters of “liberal” and “conservative” non-alternatives. His Department of Justice has sided with Asian-Americans claiming discrimination in admissions at Harvard and, again on their behalf, expressed interest in the possibility of antitrust violations in early admissions to elite schools.
President Trump last week met with California public officials who oppose the state’s sanctuary law which, as the president said, “provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women and children at the mercy of sadistic criminals.” California Governor Jerry
Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants [sic] during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders ‘animals,’” tweeted the New York Times. The echo chamber picked up the line and VICE News reported that the president did indeed compare “undocumented immigrants”—the media's euphemism of choice for illegal aliens—to animals.

Rudyard K. might have tweeted, if Rudyard could tweet, “Trump is Trump; West is West, and they never will meet.” Yet they met, and it seems an affinity grows… What did they have in common? Reality shows! No, no, not the shows they each had on TV; (Those had little resemblance, to reality)—
