Sam Tanenhaus just penned a lengthy profile in Esquire of Pat Buchanan describing how Buchanan’s three unsuccessful presidential campaigns helped lay the groundwork for Trump’s successful campaign this year. Tanenhaus quotes Buchanan as telling the New York Times, in 2000, “When the chickens come home to roost, this whole coalition will be there for somebody. . . . There’s no doubt these issues can win.” Since 2000, of course, the problems highlighted by Buchanan in his campaigns have only grown more apparent, with the great damage caused by economic globalization, mass immigration, and pointless foreign wars now so clear that even some of the denizens of DC and Manhattan can see them.
