Divide and distract

Trump: “It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports.”

What if Trump isn’t lying? Are the protests and outrage exactly what he intended? He obviously doesn’t care about national security, as neither the wall nor the ban are reasonably calculated to achieve their purported aims.

His ulterior motive: to control the conversation. The more we (justifiably) react to his most incendiary policies, the less attention we pay to kleptocracy.
