Trump's populism helped him to win the election. He campaigned against the Republican elite establishment so that he could make America great again.

Trump simply played his familiar role as a salesman to push threw a tax plan that Republicans had only dreamed about with Paul Ryan as its top salesman. This article provides the finishing touch to the end of Trump's fake populism. Trump will be in Davos to join other elites. That may put him on the cover of Time magazine again.
