2. Authoritarians like Trump deliberately "don't lead."

Their whole raison d'etre is to instigate crises for political advantage, because it plays into their narrative that there is a disintegrating world that only they can protect the nation from. They create crisis and blame somebody else, and rally their supporters to blame those people too because having shared enemies is a dream come true for someone who aspires to be a dictator.
