As Trump Drifts Away From Populism, His Supporters Grow Watchful

… As he nears 100 days in the White House, Mr. Trump has demonstrated that while he won office on a populist message, he has not consistently governed that way. He rails against elites, including politicians, judges, environmentalists, Hollywood stars and the news media. But he has stocked his administration with billionaires and lobbyists while turning over his economic program to a Wall Street banker. He may be at war with the Washington establishment, but he has drifted away from some of the anti-establishment ideas that animated his campaign. …

Much of this has stoked dismay among the conservative populists who saw Mr. Trump as a once-in-a-lifetime figure. CONT.
