Back to battle: Trump’s ‘Deplorables’ rise again to rally base

Back to battle: Trump’s ‘Deplorables’ rise again to rally base, by Gerald Seib.

Steve Bannon doesn’t do subtle. So it’s no surprise that there’s nothing subtle about the new movie President Trump’s one-time political guru has produced to energise the Trump base for this year’s midterm elections.

“No Trump, no wall, no USA at all”

The big premiere is scheduled for September 9 — chosen because it is the second anniversary of the speech in which Mrs Clinton used the “basket of deplorables” phrase. The location? The very club in Manhattan where Mrs Clinton made the speech, which has been rented for the occasion.
