Fissures within the bourgeoisie caused by Trump with his policy reflect on the international arena as well, by attacking two of the central policies driven by imperialist powers over the past decades. The first one is what we have called the democratic reaction – which means to confront tough situations regarding the relationship of forces with the masses through pacts, negotiations and elections (because of impossibility or limits to use military action). And the second, as we have said in previous articles, is the policy of international Free Trade agreements.
However, Trump in himself expresses a sector of the bourgeoisie that supports his government. In the first place, the oil sector. His Secretary of State is Rex Tillerson, former president of the main oil company in the country, Exxon. Possibly, Trump also has the support of important construction sectors (the main branch of his companies), of agrarian production and of a middle industrial bourgeoisie, harmed with the relocation of industries to China and other countries.
