Uh oh, Did Krugman call Sanders a white supremacist?!?
She will replace Andrew Jackson, a populist who campaigned against elites but was also, unfortunately, very much a racist, arguably an advocate of what we would nowadays call white supremacy. Hmm. Does that make you think about any currently prominent political figures?
From today's column.
Notice how he used a plural? Obviously the implication is about Trump. But why use a plural then? I can't think of any other so-called populist candidates (itself a term invented by elites to discredit those who represent the will of the people over that of elites)
Say it ain't so, Paul!
Look at how they've treated Obama the last 7+ years.
Trump, Sanders, Carson(?)
If you want to take "populist" and "racist" from the quote, TRUMP fits the bill.
Though, DUers have called Bernie a White Supremacist, so I suppose it's a possibility Krugman could too. Apparently he'll do whatever Clinton and Brock want him to do, so it's not out of the realm of possibilities.

He has become part of that standing army.
