Trump admires the dictators in China and Turkey. He would also like to be in that powerful position since he has always been the boss. Our system of “checks and balances” restricts his power. Control of the military is important to a dictator. When Trump begins removing top military leaders with newly promoted loyalist we will then experience the wrath of president and supreme leader Trump. Joe’s take: If memory serves me correctly, didn’t Truman fire MacArthur, a top military leader, during the Korean War in 1951?
