There was no invocation of our democratic faith. No paean to a more perfect union. No peroration about the light of liberty we hope to see go up around the world. Instead, Trump's inaugural address was devoted to the idea that “it is the right of all nations to put their interests first” and that “we must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.”
"The Future Depends on the Deal Donald Trump and Paul Ryan Are About to Make" is from the January 22, 2017 Business section of The Washington Post. It was written by Matt O'Brien and narrated by Sam Scholl.
