    Donald Trump’s unorthodox candidacy blossomed into an unorthodox presidency. In the White House, Trump carries with him all of the complex, tricky and fraught behaviors and tendencies that powered him through the 2016 campaign. He also carries with him the decisions and interactions that led him to victory — including a staff that may have some nebulous ties to a Russian government that wanted to see him victorious.

    There’s no real question that if the Affordable Care Act is repealed the number of Americans without insurance coverage will increase. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the percentage of those under age 65 who can’t afford or opt out of coverage would jump to 18 percent by 2026 under the Republican health-care bill under consideration in the Senate, with the total number of uninsured jumping from about 28 million (under Obamacare) to 49 million — an increase of about 22 million. The size of that increase is subject to debate, but there’s no real question it will be greater than zero.

    News on Tuesday that on-camera interviews might be significantly curtailed within the Capitol is an on-the-nose manifestation of something that had otherwise not attracted a lot of attention: The Republican effort to replace Obamacare was being put together almost entirely outside of the public’s ability to see what was happening.

    When Georgia’s secretary of state, Brian Kemp, announced on the weekend before this year’s midterm elections that Democrats in the state had tried to illegally access the state’s voter database, the announcement was treated with a heavy dose of skepticism. In the days that followed, that skepticism seemed increasingly warranted, as reports suggested that the claim by Kemp’s office was at best misinformed and, at worse, willfully disingenuous.

    As part of the Guardian's coverage of the 2016 election, reporter Paul Lewis traveled to Mahoning County in the northeastern part of Ohio to figure out why Donald Trump was appealing to working-class white voters in this traditionally Democratic area. He landed an interview with the county's Trump campaign chair, Kathy Miller, a former trustee of the town of Boardman who volunteers her time to get Trump elected and who will serve as an elector if Trump wins.

    It’s much easier to deal with poverty if you can convince yourself that the impoverished brought it on themselves. Nearly everyone would concur that those who suffer from poverty through no fault of their own deserve support from others, either through nonprofit or public sector assistance. But if they’re poor because of their own bad decisions? They have to fend for themselves.

    One of the recurring themes to the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump has been that he’s enjoyed the robust and ongoing support of Americans without college degrees. This has often been simplified as “white working-class voters,” the core group that propelled Trump to the presidency.
