What’s Trump’s Next Move After He Crushes The Republican Party?

The short answer is he will most likely pick up much of the party’s pieces and start his own new party. That should be his end game for this political cycle.

Then continuing with his modified Hitler game plan, he will claim that he only lost the election because the Republican establishment stabbed him in the back. And of course there will be more than a little truth there, because some men when forced to the wall (pun pun) will choose country over party. His fanatical backers will eat up this line big time.

He will continue to build his party out of the old Republican Party base and whatever disgruntled Bernie supporters and odds and ends he can convert to his xenophobic ideology. Under the right economic and international conditions, Trump can become a real existential threat to America, no less so than Hitler was to Germany.

The most glaring indicator of a Hitler style takeover will be the eventual appearance of organized thugs resembling the Nazi’s Brown Shits (SA) or the Waffen SS. You can expect super patriot groups and the ever-militant NRA to be mixed up in the formation of such violent, paramilitary groups on Trump’s behalf.

Stay tuned. This could all go south fast.
