One day, the U.S. will turn the page on Donald Trump.Is Trump a symptom?The German legal and political theorist Carl Schmitt might say that Trump had confused his friend and his enemy, dealing with the former as he should have dealt with the latter. Inexplicably, Trump once again sacrificed a crucial U.S. national interest, this time by abandoning the sole force in the Middle East region – outside of Israel – on which America could safely and seriously rely.On the other hand, it is seen among leftists on U.S. campuses who have caught the fever of the global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign against Israeli products that is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate from a quasi covert campaign against products and businesses that are just plain Jewish.In this sense, are we living in the epoque of Trump, in which Trump's revival of the "America First" slogan of the American Nazis in the 1930s has encouraged a loosening of bigoted tongues? Could it be that Trump himself, despite his officially pro-Israel positions, is a closeted anti-Semite?
