So, Standpoint urges us to give Trump the "benefit of the doubt"; so much for all the dire warnings about the Putin threat and Obama and the "EU elite"'s reluctance to confront him. So much for the evocations of "Western civilisation" and basic democratic norms. What a craven sell-out, apparently because "several American contributors to Standpoint ... are close to or even part of the new administration." I note that your execrable pro-Trump editorial closes with an appeal for funds. You will not be receiving any from me. In fact, please cancel my subscription.
