exchange

Here is a Twitter exchange between AOC and George Takei where they nail it right on the head regarding the fact that Trump is only the symptom of a much deeper structural problem ...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

@AOC
"This is the REAL conversation we need to have as a country.

As horrific as this president is, he is a symptom of much deeper problems.

Even foreign influence plays on nat’l wounds that we refuse to address: income inequality, racism, corruption,a willingness to excuse bigotry"

George Takei

@GeorgeTakei
"Let’s say Trump goes down in disgrace from Mueller or the SDNY or Congressional investigations. We’re left with a big question: How did a guy like that get elected? Why do so many still support him? We can’t just say “Fox News” or “Russians.” We have serious issues to sort out"

They are both precisely right as there are deeper and more sinister reasons at play.
