One wonders how Ryan will continue to justify his support now that Trump has made clear that he will run for the presidency as the most protectionist candidate since the 1920s. On the central issue of trade, Trump is in broad agreement with Bernie Sanders and significantly to the left of Obama and Clinton.Trump, on the other hand, regards free trade as the cause of American decline.On these trade matters, American manufacturing and now Brexit, Trump's positions are largely indistinguishable from Bernie Sanders'. Yet Republicans continue to call Sanders a socialist and Trump a conservative.The appeal of both Trump and Sanders has many politicians mouthing cliches about the deep problems with globalization. It is stunning that serious conservative Republicans who are devoted to free market ideas are backing Trump, looking the other way and crossing their fingers.
