Trump is (& has been) up to something; WHAT is not clear. His actions can't just be chalked up to "he's a rebel politician". Being petty, petulant, paranoid, ignorant, unprofessional, reckless, & immature (the way Trump is) never would serve a rebel well. Something else is going on.
I certainly don't know, but maybe it's one or more of the following:
1. he's using his office to further enrich himself; or,
2. it's all a ploy to get Pence in as President; or,
3. Trump is angling to repay the Bankers who bailed him out years ago; or,
4. he really is an ignorant, petty, empty suit; or,
5. he's mentally ill, or becoming senile; or,
6. some combination of the above.
Most of the people of the world must be laughing themselves silly because of us having such a buffoon as our "leader". Or, perhaps they're crying because he's so ignorant and dangerous. Donald Trump has to be the most incompetent, ignorant, rude, and downright dangerous President this country ever has had.
The fact that he got elected really is a testament to how desperate Americans were for a change in the status quo. His Fascist idiocy never would have been supported under normal circumstances. The Corporatist Coup in this Land (ongoing with every Administration since 1981) is now complete.
Jefferson and Madison (both of whom were Elites) warned us way back at the beginning of our Gov't that this very thing was likely to happen...unless we remained vigilant. We didn't remain so. Our Founders are turning in their graves. The Republic of the USA now exists totally in name only.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
