Since Donald Trump won the presidency, we’ve been hearing more and more about a disenchanted white working class that was fed up with a system that they say wasn’t working for them.

President Donald Trump is unlike any president in modern times. We often hear that his behavior and his statements are unprecedented. While that may be true on the national stage, there was a prominent figure in San Francisco in the 1870s who Trump could have used as a role model.

One of President Trump’s very first official acts was to sign an executive order stating it will be the policy of his Administration to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The way it was phrased was kind of like those Bay Area ballot measures that may or may not make a difference, like, “The San Francisco Board of Supervisors denounce the war in Iraq”; in other words, it doesn’t actually put anything definitive into effect. But Congress is already responding to that, and opponents of the ACA are looking for ways to cut costs.
