Jon Allsop doubts that Rupert Murdoch is really breaking up with Donald Trump, but perhaps is rather hedging his bets for a post-Trump future.[1] The point I’d make here is that white Christian nationalism is hardly inseparable from Trump;[2] though I continue to think it likely that Trump regains the presidency with the 2024 election,[3] what I call the Gilead competitive authoritarian regime project long precedes Trump and can be expected to continue even without him.
