52. it's not intentional

But it *is* the end result: he is a shit magnet for the hate and "lost" people. He has the potential for being that "big personality" that enables and normalizes things. Look at the evolution of terrorist groups and how they grew for periods of time before becoming what they are.

Look at the common threads - between the trump movement and other 3rd world terrorist groups:
Lots of money supporting his hate - donors behind the scenes etc - check
People w/o power looking for a leader - check
Hate, racism ,etc - check
Availability of weapons, etc. - check


We have a BIG problem - and we have to figure out a way to get those 30%? 40%? of people "back in the big tent"

I do think win or lose trump will continue down the same path. The attention and power is too hard for him to walk away from. When he loses - he'll claim all sorts of conspiracies and who knows what kind of things he'll set off.
