So much of the previously unthinkable has been done by President Trump that it is not impossible to imagine that he might regard a terrorist attack as a useful distraction.
Just days after the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history, the Trump administration is reportedly about to end a DHS program devoted to countering violent extremism in America.
These arguments have no basis in reality; instead, they are conservatives' self-serving attempts to hide the rot in their own movement, which foments violence even at its highest levels.
Nothing will stop Trump from inciting hatred — not even a week of full-blown domestic terrorism.
Any president of the United States should know better.
