"The scorpion must sting the frog because that is its nature. "

"Trump, then, poses an Aesopian challenge to Ryan; the scorpion must sting the frog because that is its nature. The only way to avoid the sting is not to ally yourself with the scorpion in the first place."The Washington Post

The problem is that Ryan and Trump are on the same weird boat. The only thing Ryan can do is leave the boat as soon as possible. By the way, I don't know why self-clamed conservatives in the U.S. tend to propose market fundamentalism. In my opinion, conservatism of any sort and market fundamentalism contradict each other. On the other hand, Trump's slogan "America First" is nonsense because big companies, or rather, trans-national corporations are controlling the world economy. In this context, I don't disagree with "moderate protectionism".
