As protesters converged on the nation’s airports in late January, a very different sort of resistance was shaping up at a manicured golf resort in Palm Springs, Calif. The billionaire industrialist Charles Koch [not a relative], perhaps the most influential free-market activist in the nation, stood before 550 like-minded donors to declare his intention to fight key policies of President Donald Trump. “We cannot be partisan,” he said as his guests sipped wine and the sun set over the mountains. “We can’t say, ‘O.K., this is our party, right or wrong.’”
The wealthy conservative’s call to action may soon prove more disruptive to Trump’s ambitions than any of the liberal protests filling the streets.
