A growing and increasingly disenfranchised middle classes has seen a move toward issues of working and labor conditions, as well as protectionist and nationalistic policies aimed at protecting the worker from the threats of extremism, #globalization and the sort of pluralistic urbanity that has been pitched as the reason for simmering racial tensions (and produced such a showman as Donald Trump).

With Trump's budget being announced in a few days and his speech televised tonight, Tuesday at 9pm ET, it will be interesting to see if the Republican Party is on board.
