Max Boot: Trump May Not Be a Dictator But He’s ‘Imitating Some of Their Tactics’
BOOT: "Absolutely. And I think that’s actually part of President Trump’s strategy. Because you know, he counters all of this bad publicity about the deep state conspiring against him. There is so much information out there. He creates a crisis every day. Like investigating the investigators in his particular case. And people are just overwhelmed. They can’t take it all in. They basically say we don’t know what’s going on. We don’t know what to believe. That’s exactly what he wants. This is out of the classic dictatorial playbook. Not to say he is a dictator, but he is imitating some of their tactics. And this is how he gains confidence."
