America Votes

Adam Gopnik reflects on why he believes a victory for Donald Trump would be a disaster for America.

The American Presidential election "posits a simple eternal human confrontation between sensible and crazy", he writes.

He says we must not pretend that the rise of Trump is essentially a "people's revolt" or a movement of the dispossessed.
