We’re Spending Way Too Much Time Trying to Figure Trump Out…

  1. He is running the country like a businessman. Part of being a successful business leader is crushing your competition. Not just crushing: punishing them until they run home crying to mommy. This is much easier to do if you hold a monopoly and have an unlimited supply of money. CEO Trump now has a monopoly on 2 of 3 branches of the US Government, which obviously includes the US Treasury. (We’ll see how quickly he moves to get a hold of Judicial).
  2. He is protecting his core constituency. I am not saying Trump is racist. Just that almost everything he’s done or promised to do aims to slow the decline in influence of white people in America. What do you think the birther thing was all about? And why it took off? He saw the writing on the wall. (And why announce he’ll favor Christian refugees? If I’m a terrorist trying to sneak in, now all I have to do is put on a crucifix. Because it’s a message: “Look. Eventually I’m going to have to let some of these people in. But don’t worry, won’t be anyone who will threaten your way of life.”)
  3. He is a man who has spent his life building monuments to himself. Why would he stop now? That’s why all that talk of “well, he’s not really gonna build a real wall” was such a waste of time. Of course, he was gonna build a real wall! Any highly visible infrastructure project: done.
