5. I don't think his goal was to "fix" Portland. I think it was to create B-roll for his supporters.

I think it was a pure publicity stunt made to go viral for Mid-American Trump supporters.

Every authoritarian needs an "enemy" so he will be allowed more power.

So he(they?) decided to use "rioters" having "clashes", the "anti-fa", "cities in flames".

It seems very reality show, with orchestrated conflict.

They've got the Portland footage and now they're taking the show on the road.
