Trump's top national security spokesman to leave White HousePOLITICO
Eliana Johnson, Publius Fellow 2006, writes on Michael Anton, Publius Fellow 1994, and his decision to leave the White House:
"Before joining the Trump administration, Anton had become a controversial figure during the 2016 campaign for his attempt to make the case for Trump’s candidacy. In a pseudonymous essay, “The Flight 93 Election,” he made a highbrow version of Trump’s attack on the GOP establishment, calling conservative intellectuals wilted and outmoded, and praised Trump for connecting the issues of trade, immigration and foreign policy.
"Writers affiliated with the Claremont Institute, the California think tank that published Anton’s essay, are among the small coterie of right-leaning intellectuals who have continued to defend the president."
