What is strange and rather amusing is that the White House advisers to 
Trump deem it necessary to explain to Americans the failures of 
‘socialism’ in 2018.  But when you delve into the report, it becomes 
clear that what is worrying the Trumpists is not ‘socialism’, but the 
policies of left Democrat Bernie Sanders for higher taxes on the rich 1% 
and the increased popularity of a ‘single-payer’ national health service 
for all.  The popularity of these policies threatens the Republican 
majority in Congress and also the wealth and income of big pharma 
corporations and Trump’s billionaire supporters.
