Trump throws out Jorge Ramos at the press conference before the Dubuque, Iowa rally on August 25, 2015
Barack Obama confronts Jorge Ramos; Trump merely warned Ramos to "go back to Univision," Obama has actually deported millions of human beings back to wherever they came from.
I leave it as an open question the degree to which this act is genuine and heartfelt or simply a way to tap into the narrative of resentment and accompanying aspiration for national regeneration that is ever the story of fascist insurgency. It's not really a relevant question anyway, as long as we recognize the style.
Trump's business practices in his early years exposed in a documentary; as usual, the reality behind the "self-made" entrepreneur is a sordid tale of dependence and exploitation.
For Trump, as for all his fascist predecessors, it is democracy itself which gets in the way of achieving greatness, performing those heroic deeds, for which the tired, weakened, aggrieved nation of true patriots yearns. It is democracy itself which must be circumvented and sidelined. Except in the case of Trump, it is not Middle Eastern domination or the end to terror worldwide that he's after, but simply negotiating better deals with China and Mexico.
