Donald Trump campaigned as an economic nationalist but has surrounded himself with a transnational corporate transition team that supports policies of neoliberal capitalism. These include tax breaks for the rich and for corporations, further privatization of public services, deregulation and the reduction of the social safety net. Trump used the rhetoric of an "anti-politician" to conceal his real policy agenda, and appealed directly to sections of the white working class that rejected Hillary Clinton's corporate centrism.
