Interesting Trump Article with a slightly less hysterical liberal viewpoint than many here.
I tend to agree that Trump's actions may be a little more clever than many think. History tells us that it is inevitable that at some point in the future there will be a terrorist attack of some form on US soil. And when it does happen, Trump will push the view that he was right from the outset and, maybe, use this to start disassembling some of the historical checks and balances around the use of Presidential power.
And in relation to the above:
- I find it worrying that Trump is spending a lot of time early on telling the military and law enforcement that they are under-appreciated and that he has their back.
- I find it worrying that outrageous behaviour from Trump is accepted as ok starting to be 'normalised'. For example, a President that tells outright lies, and people are ok with this.
