Ziegler says that we might see Trump's authoritarian “law and order” language as real warning signs of the rise of a Hitler-like figure, but this conclusion requires a fundamental misunderstanding of who Trump is. He is  carving out a new role of “King of America”. Judging from his first month as “president-elect,” it is very clear that the Trumpian view of the presidency is much more in line with that of the early 20th Century British monarchy than how our founders conceived of the position of commander in chief (have you seen his living quarters in Trump Tower?) In Trump’s mind,he is doing this all as a service to our country, but he isn’t a details person and he doesn’t like red tape or the nuts and bolts of actual governance. It seems that he has made vice president-elect Mike Pence his “Prime Minister,” while Trump’s role is to do the fun stuff while “making America great again.”
