Watching the most unstable President in the history of the country bounce from one position to the next makes us all worry whenever he’s out of the country, practicing “diplomacy” or trade on behalf of the nation. It’s a little like sending a 10-year-old to buy a car. He has no idea what he’s doing, he’s way over his head, and we’re going to pay for this dearly one way or the other.
The fact that an extremely concerning 2014 video of Trump has resurfaced doesn’t help at all.
The clip was recently tweeted by authoritarianism expert Sarah Kendzior. In the video, Trump is speaking to Fox News via telephone about how much he hates ObamaCare. But as he spoke, it became clear that he was in favor of crashing the economy in order to get what he wants. Trump told the hosts why he felt that a collapse of the economy would force people to come around to his way of thinking. Trump said:
You know what solves it? When the economy crashes, when the country goes to total hell and everything is a disaster, then you’ll have a, you know, you’ll have riots to go back to where we used to be when we were great.”
That is terrifying. Kendzior, who had looked into the video before, said:
This is what ‘Make America Great Again’ means to Donald Trump. It is how he has operated his businesses, taking advantage of economic disasters like the housing market crash for personal gain. It is why, during a long and painful recession, he made ‘You’re fired’ a national catchphrase, because he understands that sometimes it feels good to know that the person getting fired, for once, is not you.”
She said that Trump was basically a sociopath who doesn’t care how his decisions hurt others:
No one holds Trump accountable, because he is exactly what he claimed to be railing against: an elite billionaire with no concern for the average person, a kleptocrat who enjoys taunting people less powerful than him with threats. When you have that kind of money, which Trump was given in birth and further gained through fraud, there are few limitations to the ways you can hurt people.”
Watch the clip, and see why Trump has no business running this nation:
