Trump is in West Virginia, is in Ohio, is out building his base. He is also building his base when he defends White Supremacists. The image of Hitler’s Brown Shirts come to mind. Trump is a wrecker.
Steve Bannon wants the Democrats to talk about race. He says Trump will win in his effort to advance “economic nationalism.” This suggests a national socialism again like that of Hitler.
Trump is building a movement, a messianic movement. He is doing what leaders of such movements do to create power for themselves. What Trump is doing is not unplanned.
His purpose is nihilistic.
