During the drama of the first 100 days, Trump sailed on the campaign promises of making America great again through his xenophobic immigration ban, “America First” economic punches, and the mightily prophesied attempt to repeal of the Affordable Care Act. In spite of this, Trump’s approval ratings started at the lowest of any incumbent in US history. It’s been six months, and the great political ambition of both Trump and the Republican Party, the ACA repeal, is drowning in a mire of animosity and chaos. Trump has fired his Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and his Communications Director Scaramucci over ridiculous chest thumping in the West Wing, and his press secretary Sean Spicer has resigned. Not to mention the rapidly escalating “Russia investigation”, which Trump illegally suppressed by firing FBI Director James Comey. In the last six months 12 key members of the administration have left (either resigned or been fired), creating a situation of great instability that increasingly concerns corporate America.

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.

In the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution, Zheng Yifan gradually came to the conclusion that the historical judgments made upon Trotsky were far from fair. “The claim that he was the mortal enemy of Leninism was unfounded,” Zheng said. In both China and the Soviet Union, the declining importance of dogmatic Stalinist and Maoist ideology led to a reassessment and even subtle rehabilitation of former pariahs. Descriptions of Trotsky calling him “spy” and “bandit” ceased to appear in official literature.
In the late 1990s, Zheng Yifan compiled and edited The Trotsky Reader, though he would wait almost a decade until it was finally published in 2008. In his preface, Zheng writes that “Trotsky was doubtless a revolutionary… None of the labels Stalin slapped on him such as ‘German fascist spy’ and ‘running dog of the imperialists’ had any solid foundation.”
Over six decades after his assassination, it seems Leon Trotsky, one of the most important contributors to Marxist-Leninist theory, is one of the last to finally come in from the cold.
