Donald Trump is no fascist. He is a narcissist. It makes him no less dangerous. At the disposal of its selvnytelse he has broad political powers and the world's strongest military power. Trump loves to show off this. The last time when he left the bunker in The white house and held a bible (upside down) to the TV cameras. Surrounded by heavily armed military police, and after that peaceful protesters were cleared away. The idea was to appear to be what he is not: Brave and the believers.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?

the fall in 1989 came completely surprising to most. The weakening of the great power the united STATES has been going on for a long time, but hardly anyone foresaw the abrupt fall we now are witness to. For every day that passes is the united STATES closer to a storm that may have chilling consequences. We know the forces that create this development. 100 000 died of coronaviruset. Close to 40 million unemployed. Drapssaken around George Floyd, who has created a wave of demonstrations and riots. A deep political division in which the wing in american politics is no longer able to communicate. Militariseringen of both police and politics. And not least: the Loss of influence and status in international politics
the storm's center is president of Donald Trump. A political tin soldier with almost all the features that are characteristic of the anti-liberal right: Contempt for knowledge and science, the contempt for women, contempt for democratic processes, compromise, minorities, the truth and the rule of law. He is a president who surrounds himself with yes-people and spyttslikkere, who does not listen to advice and who are spreading fear and subservience in their surroundings. The result is an administration that both the political and the academic is the weakest in modern times. It is a disaster when the land of folklore under the corona, the economic crisis, demonstrations and riots.
Trump is also a politician who evokes a question that has never before been in United states history: Comes the president to resign if he loses the election this fall? The question stems not from the political hinterland, but from the prominent voices in american society. One of them is Paul Krugmann, a columnist in the New York Times and a nobel laureate in economics. He says the months up to the election is going to be very ugly. And adds: "When the Trump encourages the use of violence and talking about military solutions to the protests that, in the overwhelming degree are peaceful, what will he and his followers do if it seems that they lose the election in november?".
Donald Trump not the people's man. His economic policy has been to give more to the rich and the big corporations. At the same time, the president strenuously, but without success, attempted to deprive the working class and the poor public health care. Below is the most glowing, often encapsulated, and conflict in american politics: Rasespørsmålet. All of the demographic development shows that the republicans can't get, or keep, a majority of the votes without mobilizing at this historically inflamed the issue.
Donald Trump is the president of the richest, but also for large parts of the white population who feel threatened by african-americans, the Spanish-speaking minority and liberal culture. These white voters often feel an intense hatred for the federal government which has promoted the minority interests at the expense of themselves. As they see it. This sticking is so deep with many that they accept an economic policy that affects them deeply. Donald Trump is their man and loyalty is strong.Approaching the hybridkrig Debate
another striking move is the lack of resistance in the republican party. Trump has a befalende obedience that is scary. Until recently, it was only the former presidential candidate Mitt Romney who has dared to stand up against Trump. He characterized Trump as a swindler and forger. Now has a new voice came to. General Jim Mattis, Trumps the former secretary of defense, provides in a statement that the president is to blame for the turmoil in the country. He says: "Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime that do nothing to unite the american people - he does not pretend once that he tries".
General Mattis is particularly concerned about Trump's threats to put military forces against the protesters. It is an important signal that tells that the Trump can't count on any automatic obedience from the armed forces if he tries out with the violation of the constitution to hold on to power. Most important is however that the american people reject Trump and saves itself.Tearing the country in two Comment
