How to trump Donald

Donald Trump, the sleazy, racist, reactionary billionaire, has all but secured the Republican Party presidential nomination in the US. His arch rivals Cruz and Kasich conceded defeat following the most recent primary contests.

However, the Republican establishment fears a humiliating party defeat if Trump stands against Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front runner. It has, so far, failed to manoeuvre a supposedly more electable candidate.

However, this outcome is far from certain. Clinton, as the establishment candidate, could be beaten by the 'outsider' Trump, such is the public mistrust in her.

Some opinion polls conclude that Clinton's rival - 'democratic socialist' Bernie Sanders, with his message of 'a political revolution against the billionaire class' - would be better placed to defeat Trump and any other Republican candidate. This finding undermines the argument to back Clinton as 'the lesser evil'.

As Socialist Alternative (US co-thinkers of the Socialist Party) has continually explained, the rigged primaries and the use of 'super delegates' to ensure Clinton's succession will not mean the mass support for Sanders (as shown in the huge election rallies and in the 'open' primaries) automatically transferring to her Wall Street-backed campaign in the presidential election.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
