Whites for Trump? Not entirely


Here is yet another reason to question the dominant narrative of white nationalism or white identity politics winning Trump the White House, and tilting the balance of power in Britain, France, and other European nations—India’s own dalliance with right-wing populism in electing Narendra Modi, as well as the general support Trump receives in Indian society, overall. Two pieces worth reading on this point: one from Shefali Anand, Niharika Mandhana, and Saeed Shah, in the Wall Street Journal, and another, by Pankaj Mishra, in the pages of the New York Times.
