3. A demagogue's tao: start war when popularity drops.

During a war or threat of war, people are less likely to questions authority or want to change leaders. Of the enemies that Trump has denounced lately No. Korea and China were his favorites. But he chose Syria because he knew that Syria couldn't fight back and Putin didn't want to fight. N. Korea and China could plausibly make real trouble for him, one with arms and the other with trade.

As his poll numbers crater, Trump will turn next on internal enemies. Since the Latinos are already under siege, it will be liberals, protesters, etc.

We don't have time to wait for the Russian collusion investigations. Impeach now.
