Rez, that oped is pretty bad. I will even refrain from my critique of his assertions, and simply point out a contradiction in his first two statements:
Let’s agree that President Trump’s travel ban on visitors from seven nations was a sensible idea hobbled by flaws, especially regarding green card holders and dual citizens. Let’s also agree we haven’t seen a rollout this clumsy since the debut of ObamaCare, which was far more serious because it penalized millions of Americans while Trump’s order inconvenienced hundreds of foreign nationals
Foreign national: a person who is not a naturalized citizen of the country in which they are living.
A dual citizen IS NOT A FOREIGN NATIONAL, unless their dual citizenship doesn't include U.S. citizenship - at which point there's not even a reason to bring it up. Implicitly in his first statement, dual citizens were 'inconvenienced.' Explicitly in his second statement, he claims it was only foreign nationals who were 'inconvenienced.'
This guy seems to be confusing the two, purposefully or otherwise. Why trust him at his word on anything further?

Normal people voted more for Clinton then Trump so stop with the populist BS.
Just so you know I am a middle of the road person that would have voted for McCain in 2008 until the Palin BS happened. I saw what the GOP was becoming and on that day stopped supporting them. Them embracing the Tea Party killed the party in my eyes. The hatred and fear that boiled over into alt-fact is disturbing.
The People's Party, also known as the Populist Party or the Populists, was an agrarian-populist political party in the United States. For a few years, 1892–96, it played a major role as a left-wing force in American politics. It was merged into the Democratic Party in 1896; a small independent remnant survived until 1908. It drew support from angry farmers in the West and South and operated on the left-wing of American politics. It was highly critical of capitalism, especially banks and railroads, and allied itself with the labor movement.
