Politico connects the dots

Trump, the champion of Buchananism.

A surprisingly sympathetic interview with PB, himself.

Buchanan, for his part, feels both validated and vindicated. 

Long ago resigned to the reality that his policy views made him a pariah in the Republican Party—and stained him irrevocably with the ensuing accusations of racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia—he has lived to see the GOP come around to Buchananism and the country send its direct descendant to the White House.

“I was elated, delighted that Trump picked up on the exact issues on which I challenged Bush,” he tells me. 

“And then he goes and uses my slogan? It just doesn’t get any better than this.”
