Appoint Pat Buchanan to serve as Senior Advisor to the President

In a historic upset, Donald J. Trump has just been elected to serve as the next President of the United States. Mr. Trump forged a movement based on nationalism and conservative populism. Needless to say, there are those in Washington D.C., especially establishment neoconservatives, who will attempt to influence Mr. Trump in the direction of Bushism. That must not happen. It cannot happen if Mr. Trump is to uphold the promises he made to the American people.

Many commentators have observed the similarities between Mr. Trump and Patrick J. Buchanan, who nearly upstaged sitting President George H.W. Bush in the 1992 Republican primaries. Both are champions of the working class and an America First foreign policy. It was in fact Mr. Buchanan who coined the phrase "Silent Majority."

It is only fitting that Mr. Trump tap Mr. Buchanan to serve an important role in his administration. We recommend the position of Senior Advisor to the President, an office currently held by Valerie Jarrett in the Obama administration.

In his advisory role, Mr. Buchanan would be in a strong position to back up Mr. Trump against desperate, deceitful voices seeking to advance their own agenda.

Mr. Buchanan has a lifetime of wisdom to offer. From serving as a close advisor to President Nixon, to serving as White House Communications Director under President Reagan, Mr. Buchanan is no stranger to the Oval Office.

We implore Mr. Trump and his transition committee to consider approaching Mr. Buchanan regarding this post. There is no question that the Trump administration and the nation would benefit if this action were taken.
