Trump is a white nationalist because he hates Obama and WN is politically useful as a GOP politician

Trump hates Obama, thus he wanted to be President so he could destroy Obama's legacy.

How do you set yourself up to do that? Adopt, promote, and publicize the language and conspiracy theories of the most vulgar and racist of Republicans in the "We have a BLACK President, by God!" era. And if anyone knows how to opportunistically adopt and publicize vulgar shit, it's Donald Trump.

Trump is a master of media manipulation (see: his whole career), and he knows how to sell racism (see: The Central Park Five) and his own brand (see: his business career) as well as his self-aggrandizing public image as a "savvy businessman" (see: The Apprentice). And he's such a narcissist and sociopath that the more he lies, the more he believes his own lies, his own self-delusions - specifically those delusions that flatter him in the eyes of the masses, his own reflective mirror of self-promotion.

When Trump looks in the mirror, he sees his own self-created delusion. I am firmly convinced of that. He's clinically incapable of reflection, and his brain wouldn't know the difference between truth and hyperbole, let alone honesty and being a painfully transparent asshole and con man ("He says what's on his mind! He tells it like it is!" Please.).

Trump wanted to be President or at least, pretend to be President. At the very least, he wanted the publicity from a presidential campaign and the opportunity to profit off of it (which he's gotten, certainly with the power of the office of the Presidency), he wanted a Trump Tower in Moscow and Trump Towers all over the world, he wanted the RESPECT of the upper classes that he was both so obviously part of yet so painfully aware of how most of his own class, especially in his native NYC, DESPISED him (the "elites", as it were). He wanted Manhattan high society to stop laughing at him and rolling their eyes at him, because - like all narcissists - , he's a petty, self-obsessed, thin-skinned, utterly vain shell of a human being.

Going back to the thread title: Trump is not a "True Believer" white nationalist like Steve Bannon or Stephen Miller, because Trump only believes in his own bullshit. At most, he is a casual and crass racist in the vain of an old white man from the Outer Boroughs of New York City, the kind that says racist shit and subscribes to racist stereotypes but doesn't have anything close to a coherent "ideology" like a committed white nationalist. At the same time, Trump is - again - such a sociopath and narcissist to the point that he doesn't care that so many white nationalists love him, because white nationalists hate Obama, and Trump hates Obama, and the Republican base that Trump has used and abused like a true cult leader hates Obama, so that's all that matters.

The disturbing thing about Trump's white nationalist politics is not that he cares for white nationalism, but that he doesn't care and only parrots and promotes their shit because it helps him politically and personally. The bottom line for Donald Trump is Donald Trump's own bottom line. And that same Donald Trump is the President of the United States of America. Needless to say, this is all horrifying.
