‘That’s what Mussolini wanted’: Historian ominously warns about Trump ‘asking people to march in lockstep’

“It’s an utter disarray,” he said of the White House. “You can’t really compartmentalize everything, because it’s all morphed together because Donald Trump is unfit to command in my opinion.”He explained that having new communications director Anthony Scaramucci blasting the staff with foul language and making veiled threats, isn’t doing any favorites for the American people.

“It means Donald Trump picked the wrong person to be his communications director,” Brinkley said. “He thinks you can govern by chaos and it’s not working. It is true, he has 36 percent of the American public backing him. That means over 60 percent of Americans think that he’s doing a miserable job and the rest of the world is laughing.” “We had a problem with Nixon,” he continued. “If you listen to Nixon Watergate tapes, the secret tapes, and you hear Nixon ramble, it sounds like Donald Trump’s tweets and it didn’t turn out well for Nixon.” “The key to Donald Trump is this kind of blind fierce loyalty, that’s what Franco expected in Spain. That’s what Mussolini wanted in Italy,” Brinkley said, describing Trump as someone who thinks people are either with him or against him. “If you’re asking people to march in lockstep with you — we saw John McCain give the thumbs down to President Trump. No, we’re not all in lockstep with you. So, what do you have? Six months of a dysfunctional White House, nothing has gotten done, the biggest thing Congress got done is keeping and strengthening sanctions with Russia. But it’s a failed agenda so far, and we’ll see if he can get in a new form of leadership going with a White House chief of staff, but it’s been a wreck so far.”
