The final and most mysterious element ó the one that created the travel ban ó is Trumpism. This is the ethno-nationalistic aspect of the presidentís governing ideology which springs both from Trumpís own impulses and from ideas nurtured by a handful of his closest aides including Steve Bannon Stephen Miller and several staffers brought over from the alt-right publication Breitbart. Trumpism combines an instinctive belief in zero-sum relations between countries with a narrow and retrograde definition of American identity. And a key aspect of Trumpism is surprise. This is partly due to circumstance: There are no off-the-shelf Trumpist agendas that the White House can immediately translate into policy. But in developing their plans Bannon and Miller have cultivated a maximum amount of secrecy reportedly conscripting GOP legislative aides who hid their work from their own bosses and shielding most of Trumpís own Cabinet from their plans.
