'Trumpism presents a tribal story. 'The tribe needs a strong warrior in a hostile world, to build walls and erect barriers to hold off foreign threats, and to wage endless war on globalist elites. This is a deeply wrong and un-American story, because we are not a tribe. We are founded on universal principles, attracting talented people from across the globe, active across the world on behalf of all people who seek democracy and dignity. The GOP was founded as a free labor party. It believed in economic diversity -a highly individualistic entrepreneurial philosophy -- with  strong local communities to build a web of nurturing relationships and shared morality, which would define common standards of character,  cultural cohesion and national greatness.Today, the main enemy is not aliens; it’s division — between rich and poor, white and black, educated and less educated, right and left.'
