So what is the endgame for Trump?

Autocracy like in Russia?

Pure kleptocracy to enrich himself and his kids?

Or something much darker, like pure fascism or even purging of non-whites?

Is genocide out of the realm of possibility?

Personally I wouldn't put anything past this monster. He's easily the sickest, most sociopathic person elected president in my lifetime.

2. Personal Profit.

Trump doesn't care about policy,it obviously bores him to tears,he in it to make money. Much darker forces than Trump will be making policy with Mike Pence as actual Decision Maker in Chief.

3. He who dies with the most toys wins

The presidency is a prize to stoke his ego.

This is the key to understanding Donald Trump. He does not have an ideology other than Donald Trump.

11. I don't think Donald Trump has a coherent ideology

He may indeed be a racist but that is primarily the sociopath in him, as opposed to being committed to any kind of movement with a longstanding agenda.

Given that Steve Bannon was his campaign's executive director and will be his closest advisor in the White House it seems likely that White Nationalism will characterize his presidency and policies. And yes, I think the fascist label applies.

My point is that everything else is subservient to this narcissist feeding his ego. He is more committed to the glorification of Donald Trump than to any ideology, and that is the key to understanding his motives.

the women who accused him of rape and sexual assault, his predilection toward naked underage girls and his very crooked business dealings and his legal theft of millions in tax dollars owed to america. But HIS TEAM who, while the donaldfuhrer ogles young girls somewhere, video or something, are pouring honeyed words into his ear are creating the New Nazi Party of America. Brownshirts are already, especially the young backward baseball cap wearing racist which are legion, running rampant, snatching off or forcing the removal of hijabs from muslim women, scrawling racist epithets everywhere, I as an AA better leave ameriKKKa or be hung ect, promising that KKK marches are on the way, one coming up in N.C. I read somewhere. This is ameriKKKa now. And with the Supreme Court vulnerbilities this is ameriKKKa for the next generation and probably beyond IF we survive that long.

I thank my lucky stars I won't be around to watch the destruction of this republic.

"those who would give up essential
liberties to purchase a little
temporary safety, deserve neither
liberty or safety"

For the people who don't think we are all in deep doo doo, even the clowns thinking the orange slime was going to save them. That's my one small solace. They will lose also and ameriKKKa is on rapid decline now. Endgame? No endgame, it's here and its name is rapid decline of this republic.

12. Trump will be an easily manipulated puppet, but he won't know it.

He'll have handlers like Reagan had.

These handlers will let him be all presidential and stuff, the star of the greatest reality TV show ever, but Trump won't be scripting the show, nor will Puckerbutt Pence and the Trumpettes. (Worst American band ever!)

Pence has got more shit in his closet than Spiro Agnew did and his fellow Republicans will use it against him. He too will be a puppet.

Internecine warfare within the Republican Congress is going to intensify.

Trump isn't going to treat his voters any better than he's treated women, his investors, or his contractors. The television machine is an evil genie. It gives people what they wish for. Trump voters wished for change, and boy, are they are going to get it. Like a kick in the head.

18. The knives are out in the smoky back rooms of the Republican Party.

The big oil/gas companies and free trade internationalists can hire the best hit men and buy the most venal congressmen. And the Clinton states won't be pushed around.

Most of the hurt is going to land on those who are already hurting; the Trump voters who were hoping to shake things up. They are going to suffer even greater depths of powerlessness. These are the people the Democratic Party has to reach out to before the next elections.

19. yes... if there is a next election

 

I was thinking about the one hopeful thing is Democratics can try to win back the House and Senate in 2018. There should be enough backlash to Trump to do it by then. Then I was thinking about GWBush, and how unpopular he was after his selection after 2000, and hmm, why didn't the Dems take back Congress in 2002? Then I realized, oh fuck, 9/11. And then the march to war in Iraq.

I don't think it's going out on a limb to predict a national emergency (massive riots, terrorist attack) in the next year, that the Trump administration will use to grab more power and deflect public unrest. Then use that power boost to hold onto Congress, or worse...
