As commander-in-chief, Donald Trump would actually preserve the status quo that members of the Republican establishment are afraid of losing, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Horsey writes in an opinion piece published Friday in the Los Angeles Times.

"Trump may talk in a way that resonates with the guy who works on the docks or down a coal mine, but his friends and associates are rich country club members, celebrities and billionaire businessmen," Horsey argues.

"As president, he would continue to sell the common folk on the idea he is on their side, but his administration would doubtlessly work in concert with the Republican Congress to advance trickle-down economics and build budgets that reward the military and big corporations and go cheap on programs to aid the underclass and the working poor."

Horsey says the GOP guard opposes Trump because it fears he cannot win the general election and will fall to Hillary Clinton.

"Sure, he may lose, but, if he wins, that establishment will have as their front man a superb salesman who can make the suckers believe all their old ideas are shiny and new," he writes.
