If you are thinking about writing an anti-Donald Trump editorial or op-ed, and really want to convince people who are thinking of voting for him not to, let me offer you a piece of practical advice:
If you can drop the sentence…
“Even if it means you will have to accept decades of crushing socialism, you must fight against Trump”.
…into your anti-Trump screed without disrupting its flow, then it’s probably not going to convince any of the people that you need to convince, and is need of a rewrite.
Alas, Robert Kagan’s anti-Trump op-ed in today’s Washington Post doesn’t pass the test.
