On the TriplePundit website, RP Siegel asks if a Trump administration might promote a Universal Basic Income in the United States. He writes that, while supported by progressives, UBI may eventually be endorsed by the decidedly non-progressive Trump to make good on campaign promises to restore working class economic security.

Citing support for UBI on both the right and left and Trump’s constant unpredictability, Siegel asserts “anything is possible” with regard to this new republican president and UBI.
