    Nixon believed that America had been betrayed by feckless, out-of-touch elites who had allowed the country to descend into chaos, and he effectively exploited both racial desegregation and crime as wedge issues. He promised to use the power of government on behalf of decent, law-abiding people—but not to dismantle the power of government. If all of this sounds vaguely Trumpian, it should. Donald Trump is Nixon’s obvious heir.

    People with experience in business or finance are a necessity in Washington, but the spectre of a privileged executive élite circulating in and out of government and the private sector—especially Wall Street—has shadowed the American political system for more than half a century. The financial industry still favors the Republican Party, but, since the nineteen-nineties, it has become more closely affiliated with the Democrats, and that has provoked a resurgent left, led by Warren and by Senator Bernie Sanders, of Vermont.

    “The story of this election may be the mobilization of the Hispanic vote,” said Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, an anti-Trump Republican who has pleaded with his party to do more to win over Latinos. “So Trump deserves the award for Hispanic turnout. He did more to get them out than any Democrat has ever done.”

    “We should do things that matter to us and matter to the country, but we don’t have to do everything,” Mrs. Obama told her staff shortly after her husband’s election. That rarely included campaign politics. Until now.

    Donald Trump, on the other hand, has no record of public service and no qualifications for public office. His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself. He is easily goaded, a poor quality for someone seeking control of America’s nuclear arsenal. He is an enemy of fact-based discourse; he is ignorant of, and indifferent to, the Constitution; he appears not to read.

    we are mainly concerned with the Republican Party’s nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency. These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazine’s founding, to endorse a candidate for president. Hillary Rodham Clinton has more than earned, through her service to the country as first lady, as a senator from New York, and as secretary of state, the right to be taken seriously as a White House contender.

    (Asked about the internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War, Trump mused that such measures are sometimes necessary.)
