The eruption of mass opposition to US President Trump is an event of enormous importance. It poses the question of the program and leadership that will guide the mass social anger at the militaristic and socially reactionary policies of this administration.
Trump is the true face of the capitalist oligarchy. The coming to power of his administration is not an aberration in an otherwise peaceful and democratic society, but the outcome of decades of social cuts, growing inequality and unending war, under both Democrats and Republicans.
The series of articles in this pamphlet outline the political foundations for understanding the origin of Trump’s victory and advance a socialist strategy for the working class, the only social force that can defeat the drive toward dictatorship and war.
