Trump is nothing new. All politicians get corrupted by the process because they are human beings. Trump is worse than most because he has no real values simply a childish and romantic view of American history and some basic Keynesian economics. Strangely Keynes himself warned us about guys like Trump years ago with this quote:

“Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back”

― John Maynard Keynes
