Donald Trump Explains One Theme of His Presidency to Bring It Closer in Line With Banana Republic Style

From The Washington Post:
“Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump said. “And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military.

“That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military,” he added.
I really hope there aren't any libertarian Trump fanboys that are going to attempt to defend this.

  1. While it is scary to read that, again, it's rhetoric. It could happen, but my impression is that he's bloviating about how awesome he is. He doesn't speak on logic; he's connecting with people with verbal images and emotions because ---> PEOPLE. Libertarians run on logic. Most don't. It's, as even Trump said in the same interview, marketing, and he's good at it.

  2. For some reason I see a mock military style uniform with lots and lots of medallions and magnificent shoulder tassels.
