[Comment] The Lancet Commission on public policy and health in the Trump era

Amid the raging US Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, the nation’s 16th President, vowed that America’s “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”. At a time of deep ideological and political schism, it was a notion of government predicated on promoting the welfare—and wellbeing—of its citizens. With the 45th presidency of Donald Trump, that foundational vision has come under siege and the US Government and its commitments are at risk of capture by a privileged few for private gain.
