Donald Trump, Van Halen and the Rock-and-Roll of Environmental Policy

No matter your opinion of Donald Trump’s politics, it’s clear that America’s new lead singer knows how catch the ear of the American public. The soon-to-be President plays Twitter like Eddie Van Halen plays his Frankenstein Fender. Both revolutionized their instruments. Both will be emulated by political and rock-and-roll wannabe’s for years to come. In fact, it is likely that the one thing music-loving Americans can agree on is that Donald Trump is a flamboyant frontman in an age when classic rock desperately needs heroes. Whether or not Trump is that hero remains to be seen. Like all rock revolutions, Trump’s music is shaking the nation and world. He continues to drop new singles via Twitt
