morph & trump


Quotations:


-- ​From Brexit in the United Kingdom, to Mr Trump in the US, to Pauline Hanson's re-emergence in Australia, protectionist instincts are morphing into political movements that are shaking the foundations of liberal democracies.​

-- The message could not be clearer: protectionism in an age of economic insecurity, globalisation and terrorism trumps identity politics.
