Trump's Base Loves Him

Interviews with Trump supporters show that they have concerns about his Twitter storm but they believe that he is doing what he said he would do.  They are correct.  Trump's first days in office have been devoted to showing his base that he means business.  Much of what Trump has done in his first days as president may not turn into real changes but he has attended to his greatest asset.  As long as his base loves him, he will be feared by politicians who fear that he will turn his base against them in subsequent elections.  The Republican Party is his party for the time being.  Trump would like to maintain ownership and turn our country into a single party autocracy.  The majority of our nation would be held hostage by Trump's hold over his base.  This is what our founders feared when they established our democratic system.  Trump's success illustrates the flaws that they had foreseen.
