Trump Pivots To Full Nationalist, Who Needs Donors?

The Washington Post reported Trump’s reasoning for his latest campaign “expansion” in which Paul Manafort is shoved aside in favor of Trumpbart Minister of Propaganda Stephen Bannon.

Bannon, in phone calls and meetings, has been urging Trump for months to not mount a fall campaign that makes Republican donors and officials comfortable, the aides said. Instead, Bannon has been telling Trump to run more fully as an outsider and an unabashed nationalist.

Trump has listened intently to Bannon and agreed with him, believing that voters will ultimately want a presidential candidate who represents disruption more than a candidate with polished appeal, the aides said.

“I want to win,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal. “That’s why I’m bringing on fantastic people who know how to win and love to win.”

This is like watching Stalin denounce Trotsky. It’s exactly what you can expect should Trump somehow capture the White House. It’s Heil all the way down.
