Is Trump a genius?

Thank you. This is a thought provoking position. Just to get this out of the way: I both agree and disagree. Yes, an idiot savant perhaps as any major con artist must be to talk organizations out of hundreds of millions of dollars with a record of continuous disasters. No, he is dangerous and mentally unable to handle the situation he is in. Yes, he may do things that some think are useful (“Mussolini made the trains run on time”) but he will destroy far more than he accomplishes. All of us are heavily invested in this country and our lives here. We really don’t want to entertain the thought that it is over so we look for the silver lining. We normalize out of growing desperation. Within the last two days I’ve become very concerned with what this means to the rest of the planet. They are not blind and, as one commentator here noted, China is brilliant and on the rise. China does not care about Trump’s self delusion. Either we clean the Trump mess up quickly or we will break apart. I can see a California Alliance aligning with China while Trumpestan goes to Russia. Where does Boston, New York and DC go?
