Cooke & Corn largely agree on Trump’s recent action, especially the obvious conflict of interest between a company named Trump and a Trump White House. They think his only escape hatch is to completely divest like his predecessors did or else he risks later impeachment under the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause as pay-to-play scandals surface. They also concur that Trump’s “industrial policy by tweet” — Carrier, Boeing — is irrational corporate socialism, though popular. But as for his Cabinet picks so far — Billlionaires, Generals, Randites — Charles thinks they’ve been good conservative choices (not Flynn at NSA) while David objects to appointing anti-government reactionaries who despise the agencies they’d run.
