23. IMO, it's to decrease the quality of life in the nation, Russia-style.

Since Trump wants to emulate dictators like Putin, he has to fashion the nation in Putin's image. Putin promotes despair in his people so that they have less motivation to push for a change in leadership. If he can repress them harshly enough, they'll just give up and let him rule- and collect billions of their tax dollars for himself and the oligarchs.

This is Trump's model. He wants to Russiafy the US. Ruining the USPS, destroying Social Security, killing the ACA-- all of it is to make the US into a version of Russia.
