Here is Professor Peter Dale Scott's take on the upcoming Trump presidency:
During the campaign we heard over and over that Donald Trump was the ultimate outsider and a threat to the established order. But is he really going to shake up what Peter Dale Scott calls The Deep State?
In his conversation with WhoWhatWhy’s Jeff Schechtman, Scott identifies some early signs that suggest Trump and his people may already be bending to The Deep State, and explains why he thinks even some good may come from this extreme testing of the democratic process.

Which means the rich will get richer, while We The People will be saddled with more debt.
Are you happy now?
