According to former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, the political surges of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have much deeper meaning than most people have been willing to discuss. According to Reich, the surge of these two candidates represents a broader revolt against America’s ruling class.
Reich explains that the two candidates are both viewed as outsiders, and their growing support is a sign that the public is ready to do away with the ruling class that has dominated American politics for the last 30 years.
One of the most important points made is that this groundswell of support is not to be confused with the typical attraction that the public has towards newcomers in the political arena – Reich says that this attraction is much different.
