Modern de Tocquevilles: Foreign reporters assess Trump, the press, shameful U.S. poverty

...I spoke to the group [10 journalists who are touring the country as World Press Institute fellows] in Chicago on Friday and was confirmed in a sense that context is grievously lacking in some assessments of Trump by the American media.

More interesting than the the travellers' firm grasp of the obvious was to discern a certain Alexis de Tocqueville outsider's insight about the U.S. from folks seeing it in some cases for the first time.
