'Trump waged a relentless, vindictive campaign to build his own myth by suppressing the facts & by bullying and silencing people who could have stopped those deceits — particularly reporters and WS analysts — forcing all but a very few into a conspiracy of silence. Between the collapse of his empire in 1991 and the issuance of more than $1 billion in Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts stock and junk bonds by 1996, he’d compromised the truth-telling capacity of Forbes magazine, the Wall Street Journal, TV broadcasters, Arthur Andersen and casino analysts on Wall Street. By the time Trump resigned in 2009 as chairman of the public company he founded, he had paid himself an estimated $82 million in personal compensation, while the company’s stocks and bonds had become nearly worthless. “He is the best salesman of his own myth that anyone has ever seen; the myth was that he was a winner.”

It won't change the minds of the trumpets, who remain blind and clueless as to the destruction such a narcissist with a mobster mentality will do to America's reputation as a place where the Rule of Law is venerated. Even if we are not perfect...we were wonderful and respected until this ignorant liar wrecked our nation.

May I recommend to readers The Atlantic's: "The End of the American Century" which is not about Trump, but about the life of Richard Holvrook, and what it tells us about he decay The Pax Americana.

"What's called the American century was really just a little more than half a century. It began with the Second World War and the creative burst that followedthe United Nations, the Atlantic alliance, containment, the free worldand it went through dizzying lows and highs, until it expired the day before yesterday. The thing that brings on doom to great powersis it simple hubris, or decadence and squander, a kind of inattention, loss of faith, or just the passage of years?

At some point that thing set in, and so we are talking about an age gone by. It wasn't a golden agethere was plenty of folly and wrongbut I already miss it. The best about us was inseparable from the worst. Our feeling that we could do anything gave us the Marshall Plan and Vietnam, the peace at Dayton and the endless Afghan War. Our confidence and energy, our reach and grasp, our excess and blindnessthey were not so different from Holbrooke's. He was our man. That's the reason to tell you this story."
