USA asked Russia to return Crimea to Ukraine. Called it. Cool It's the right thing to do, though.

Well, nobody believes that Trump will end "neofeudalism", in fact, he is a part of the 1%. He probably only became president because he could; to bolster his ego; to save his horrible business ventures.
He hasn't disclosed his taxes yet, he is keeping his business despite being president, he is bringing the people now running his companies into his staff and giving them full security access. Christ, if there was ever a definition for "neofeudalist", it's DT.

The only way I see this man do anything remotely good is by increasing his own fame, securing his legacy. He actually gives two shits about how people see him, he wants to be liked. But that's all, he doesn't have a philanthropist agenda -- maybe Obama didn't have one either in the end (although I think he genuinely cared), but Trump doesn't have one either.


So, in summary, Trump wont protect any of the 99%, all his actions have lead to so far is people who helped the US in Iraq as e.g. translators being sent back to their countries despite having a legal VISA and a reason to migrate to the USA. That's what's happening, and that's what people are protesting against.


Trump very much cares about those people. Probably more than anything else in the world, his businesses, family, everything. Even if he didn't, his purported "ego" demands that he aids them to secure his fame. You have some strange extreme hypotheticals about Trump, and likewise they are false. I have powerful reason to believe Trump will bring back high paying jobs to America; the fact that he is a Business mogul means that he has a strong understanding of government and the economy. Likewise, he will - he *has* - enact policies which will lead to a proliferation of those jobs, restoring income growth for the 99%. This likely won't show up in Hellworth's graphic, however, as the stock market is doing very well relative to inflation, which is where this true income growth inequality is coming from.
