Ever run a business? The more employees you have the harder it is to control what goes on, to the point if it gets too big you can't really directly control anything. Like steering a battleship using a wooden oar.
One part of my thinking that has changed as the years have passed is that I focus more on the what rather than the why. In other words, if something is repeatedly observable that means it's real regardless of whether I understand exactly the how or the why behind it. Let me try to apply that to Trump for you.
Let's start with the plan for Syria that Obama was following. Obama wanted to launch missiles, but a lot of people protested, including some military people with posters reading, "I don't want to be Al-Queda's air force." So the plan was delayed. In comes the new president, Trump, and what happens? Trump picks up the exact plan for Syria that Obama was following, complete with a fake chemical weapons attack on children.
During the 2016 campaign Trump complains that the Fed is keeping interest rates too low, which is absolutely correct. Then once president, Trump pulls a complete 180, and actually complains that the FED rates are too high and need to be lowered! Now who benefits from Trump taking that position? It ain't the average American.
I'll give you a third example. On the campaign trail Trump holds up Wikileaks papers in his hand proclaiming, "I love Wikileaks!" After all,
Wikileaks was the source releasing vast amounts of dirt on the Clintons, as well as Obama. But then what happened as soon as Trump becomes president? The Trump administration pressures Ecuador to reverse their decision to grant Julian Assange asylum, and simultaneously the Depart of State declares Wikileaks to be a "terrorist organization".
Those are just a few of many actions that reveal Trump's true colors. The shouting at CNN reporters is great fun, even I've laughed at it myself, but if you look at the actions of this administration on fundamental issues, what you see is the continuation of the deep state and shadow government. Trump is complicit.
