What Hitler Taught Trump About Rallies

It's worth remembering that Trump had a book of Hitler's speeches by his bed. Here's one of Hitler's quotes about speeches at rallies.

A mass rally is designed to switch off the thinking process. Only then will the people be ready to accept the magical simplifications before which all resistance crumbles.
-        Hitler

Trump is offering to chase imaginary monsters like economic carnage and out of control crime and immigration. One beauty of getting people to agree to chase imaginary monsters is that you can - at any time - just turn on the light and claim victory. "Look! The job market is now healthy!"
