[OP-ED]: Trump isn’t destiny

 06/13/2017 - 15:17
To some extent, the future of America depends on Donald Trump. But it depends even more on how these social and economic trends evolve -- how we cope with them and whether we become a more cohesive society or a more contentious one. EFE

 It’s time to take a brief break from Donald Trump. Whatever you think of him, there’s no denying that he dominates the news cycle.

[OP-ED]: Trump supporters have good reason to take criticism personally

 05/31/2017 - 10:42
Trump didn’t divide America. This country was split long before the real estate mogul began a second career as a politician. He merely exploited those fault lines for his own benefit. EFE

 The saying goes, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”

Likewise, just because President Trump’s supporters take criticism of their guy personally doesn’t mean they aren’t actually being attacked.
