The effects of a Trump presidency will be devastating to communities in all corners of the US, and even the world.
Immigrants, women, Muslims, people of color, and anyone at odds with Trump will be put at risk, if not by his policies, then by the rhetoric of hate spread amongst the Right. Struggle will be imperative to opposing a Trump presidency – not the struggle of any individual or any one group, but collective struggle.
If there is any hope of combating Trump and the capitalist class’ tactic to divide and conquer, it will be to build solidarity amongst the Left. It is the idea that workers, immigrants, women, Muslims, people of color, and ordinary people can and must unite despite their differences in order to stand up against Trump.
An injury to one is an injury to all.
