On Monday in one of his rallies Trump came out of the closet as a Nationalist and proud of it, and by Wednesday an unidentified MAGABomber has sent at least seven bombs to Democrats that Trump for two years has attacked in his hate speeches. We did not arrive here out of anywhere, the Trump phenomena started as a charismatic populist who said what a lot of people had been waiting to hear, the GOP was fascinated and thought they could mold this candidate once he was in power and that responsibility would bear on him.

His hate for Hillary and “here emails” is a theme on each and every rally, and he is obviously obsessed with erasing the legacy of Obama while he frequently blames Soros for funding the Democrats and all that he does not like.

While some fans copy the Presidents cropping habits NRA lobbyist Dana Loesch says Trump supporters and gun owners may need to bring guns to polls to “protect themselves from progressives”. The US could face a new civil war if this development continues.
