Donald Trump thrives on divisiveness. It’s how he keeps himself the center of attention, fuels his base and ensures that no matter what facts are revealed, his followers will stick by him. https://t.co/RvICRvj8A8

The “Brexit” in the UK:

Well, I doubt Lucifer would welcome them, as after what they did to Britain, they would even manage to divide hell 🙂 https://t.co/AS367egjZP

Hi @KateHoeyMP, thanks for the feedback. Actually, I was elected by my constituents with over 500k votes.

Imagine an elected MP campaigning on Europe, not knowing that MEPs are elected? pic.twitter.com/dEEQOVfMoN

Don’t forget, we are building and renovating big sections of Wall right now. Moving quickly, and will cost far less than previous politicians thought possible. Building, after all, is what I do best, even when money is not readily available!

In other words—the “wall” was originally cooked up as a trick to use the candidate’s narcissism (“I am the greatest builder!”)to get him to talk about immigration policy.

Virtually *everything* about this man and his “presidency” can be understood through his narcissism.

Once built, the wall would become boring. In 2014, Trump's spin doctors set the wall on the agenda so that Trump can focus on a simple issue for simple minds. As intended, the Dems proudly got caught in that trap.
