Conflict Transformation; Donald Trump and the narrative of American exceptionalism

As a presidential candidate, whose America is Donald trump advertising and what does that mean for the rest of us and do we need a new narrative of America exceptionalism?

“Whenever Americans have confronted the reshuffling of status and influence—the Great Migration, the end of Jim Crow, the end of a white majority—we succumb to the anti-democratic politics of absolutism, of a “conflict between absolute good and absolute evil,” in which, Hofstadter wrote, “the quality needed is not a willingness to compromise but the will to fight things out to a finish. Nothing but complete victory will do.” Trump was born to the part. “I’ll do nearly anything within legal bounds to win,” he wrote, in “The Art of the Deal.”
