This is typical Trump methodology — also the tactic used by Hitler to gain power, and by ISIS and other terrorist groups for recruiting. It’s very simple:

  1. Convince your audience that their lives suck.
  2. Convince your audience that the reason their lives suck is because of ______________ (fill in name of favorite boogeyman).
  3. Convince your audience that only you can vanquish the boogeyman that’s making their lives suck.

And, of course, lie as much as you want. The gullible masses will believe what you say, no matter how ridiculous it is.
