A Trump policy institute? Heaven help us
As a brand extension, the recently announced launch of the America First Policy Institute couldn't be better. The name leans on Donald Trump's campaign catchphrase and, true to form, promises something grand. And though it's built on a shaky foundation -- how many real policies did the former president actually have? -- its $20 million starting budget offers insiders a chance to get paid for continuing to spread Trump's populist message.
