PhD student Tom Messersmith has written an article for The Hill

PhD student Tom Messersmith has written an article discussing why Donald Trump, from a historian’s perspective, is dangerous for the presidency. Written for The Hill, Messersmith explains that from a post-modernist theory standpoint, Trump is an interesting case study. Trump somewhat represents post-modernism himself, for he gives a narrative that he believes is true, regardless of what history and others say about the matter. On the other hand, critics say Trump is factually incorrect and his judgements are morally wrong, disproving that he follows post-modernism.
