HITLER, TRUMP SHARE CHARACTER TRAITS
In March 1945 it became clear that Germany would lose World War II. Hitler signed a decree to have a scorched earth for Germany, where all things were to be destroyed. Germany was to be made one vast wasteland. But Hitler, his own personal fate sealed, was not interested in the continued existence of the German people.
The German people were spared this destruction by the quiet intervention of Albert Speer and others.
Hitler and Trump share several character traits. They both feel that what is most important is how they are affected by an event. They both have a long history of ignoring advice, feeling they know best. And both are prone to rages.
With all of the crimes that the president, may have committed, that are presently under investigation, Trump’s situation may start to collapse. Might he issue his equivalent of a scorched earth policy? If he did would there be any meaningful protection for the country considering the third rate group of cabinet officers and presidential advisers in place, and that the Republicans in congress don’t show any indication that they might be a protection?
