After working on Subjobject Classifier diagrams, I think I understand the meaning of Make America Great Again. Essentially, it calls for the reestablishment of the old set of Social Norms as the terminal object.

Under the new terminal object created by the Elites, a typical Trump voter finds himself at a disadvantage, both culturally and economically. Furthermore, he can't transfer his values to his children because the values won't work under the new terminal object regime.

The same goes for the more traditional extractive American companies who struggle to cope with globalization and technological change. The steep drop in energy prices in 2014 hit them and their workers really hard. Obama's climate change rhetorics added insult to the injury. It's "us vs the world's elites" now.
