JOSEPH KISHORE—The strategy of the Democratic Party toward the Trump administration is bound up with a protracted political and social process. The past forty years have seen an extreme concentration of wealth. This has involved not only the amassing of vast fortunes by America’s billionaires—three of whom now own more than half of the population—but also a growing chasm between the top five or ten percent of the population, the upper-middle class, and the bottom 90 percent. The interests and concerns of this layer are distinct from and hostile to the interests of the working class.
