Trump is building a third electorate, alienated culturally and broken economically by Democrats and Republicans and fuelled on racist radicalism. All he needs now is some external threat to manipulate and demand total obedience from.

Nuclear war threats with North Korea and Nazi rallies in Charlottesville? That’s the 205 day legacy of Trump so far, and these two new low points have to be appreciated against a back drop of a Presidency that has redefined low points.

Trump’s dangerous revenge fantasies fuelled by a thin skinned violent narcissism was always going to be a danger to internal and external stability for America but not even critics could have foreseen just how disastrous Trump would have turned out to be.

His inability to get Health Care through despite Republican domination should send a terrible warning sign that Trump could soon discard the hollow husk that is the Republican Party for his own brand of unbridled fascism.

He didn’t denounce the Nazi’s in Charlottesville because those are the supporters he intends to turn to when the chips are really down on his Presidency.

Trump is building a third electorate, alienated culturally and broken economically by Democrats and Republicans and fuelled on racist radicalism. All he needs now is some external threat to manipulate and demand total obedience from.

We are watching the building of a tyrant who shows contempt for Democracy and the values that underpin it.

To date the only straw Trump has left to clutch is that the American economy is bullishly charging along because of reforms and policies introduced by Obama and a stock market who believe he will pass massive tax reforms. If Trump’s inability to get health care reform passed is anything to go by, that stock market charge will turn to stock market collapse once the fiction of those tax cuts getting passed is realised.

If the stock market crashes, the reality of the economic pain will bite Trump’s supporters first and he will need to find a scape goat to demonise when it does.

Trump is a growing danger to America and the planet.

    You have a fanciful view of the power Trump is able to exercise Martyn.
    He is having his teeth pulled one by one , and the Republican party far from being at risk of being discarded, are teaming up with the Democrats to erode the power of any future US president in order to weaken him.
    He isn’t doing a great job of diplomacy but with North Korea continuing to develop their nuclear deterant any US administration is bound to react.
    Just what they will or should do about it is an open question, but Trump’s bluster isn’t likely to be very different from any other US president in the circumstances.
    But he has nothing like the power you attribute to him.

      David, you under-estimate Trump’s INFLUENCE (even if his power is waning, as you suggest). By his own rhetoric he is emboldening the Amerikan far-right. More people will be injured or killed before that lunatic is impeached and removed from the White House.

      • David Stone says:

        Far more people will be injured and killed after he’s left the white house. War and belligerence are the only moves he can make that the establishment will tolerate from him.

          +100 DAVID STONE…seems a bit simplistic to blame Trump…some say it was a setup….time will tell ….just like the Clinton Democats claiming a Russian hack on DNC costing them the Election:

            Google “Seth Rich”

            • Red Buzzard says:

              yes seems like Seth Rich was the leaker from inside the Democratic Party to wikileaks…and was then murdered

              ( so the Russians did not hack the Democrats and swing the Election for Trump and Trump was not in Russian collusion…and btw what happened to all the sexual harassment claims against Trump? )

              …so Trump now goes from being a sexual predator/ abuser/ harasser of women… to Russian spy collaborator who swung the Election away from Hillary…to a white supremacist Nazi collaborator in several short quick steps

              …and while Susi Ferguson, mainstream RNZ National Radio (a Clinton supporter ?) has long been happy to blame Trump for everything …and now insinuate Trump is a white supremacist racist and responsible for the debacle at Charloteville…others are not so sure and think it was a false flag setup

                    You two cheerleaders for that Orange fascist buffoon need a reality check. If you condone fascism, what does that make you both? I don’t think that requires an answer. It’s fairly simple, you’re either opposed to fascism or you ARE a fascist.

            • Priss says:

              No, David, google FASCISM. It’s more appropriate than your sly conspiratorial winks

    Just came across “My meeting with Donald Trump: A damaged, pathetic personality — whose obvious impairment has only gotten worse” http://www.salon.com/2017/08/12/my-meeting-with-donald-trump-a-damaged-pathetic-personality-whose-obvious-impairment-has-only-gotten-worse/ The truth of the matter is that the US is a damaged, pathetic country – whose obvious impairment has only become worse. Over a hundred million of those bastards think he’s a great guy! Time to let go of America and dissolve the ANZUS Treaty with these Neanderthals. We need to leave the club and become a neutral country without a military that is now finding alternative use as a gulag for teenagers. Shame on National.
