    "Drivers towards Trumpism include low"

    You left out the main driver towards "trumpism" which was the treachery of Obama/democrats who poured billions into the Banks and Corporates while imposing huge wage and job cuts onto the working class. Obama rewarded the criminals who were responsible for the 2008 financial crisis while making the working class pay. That's why many workers who voted for Obama switched to Trump or didn't vote at all.

    "but some basic safety nets that cherry pick from the models of every other western democracy are doable"

    No there won't be any safety net's. Ask the billionaires and they will assure you there is just no money. And you seem oblivious to the fact that all the western "democracies" are dismantling the safety nets no matter what party is in power. The destruction of safety nets, war overseas and austerity at home will accelerate in the coming months and years.
    You can take that to the bank.
