William F. Buckley on Candidate Trump…16 Years Ago!

In 2000, the year there first was talk of Trump running for President, Conservative icon and former New York mayoral candidate William F. Buckley, Jr. wrote of Trump’s narcissism and warned of his demagoguery.  I don’t have a link to the original, prescient article, but I’ve supplied the URL to an article about the article.  Here is a taste:

“So what else can Trump offer us? Well to begin with, a self-financed campaign. Does it follow that all who finance their own campaigns are narcissists? At this writing Steve Forbes has spent $63 million in pursuit of the Republican nomination. Forbes is an evangelist, not an exhibitionist.”
