    Trump used Hitler's 1930's strategy to obtain absolute power. "extreme but the truth" 1. Hitler [Trump] convinced the populace that he had their best interest at heart and was their only way out. 2. Hitler [Trump] provoked disorder, and then claimed he was the only one capable of stopping it. 3. Hitler [Trump] provoked violence with the social democrats and made it appear they were the instigators’. 4. Hitler [Trump] had his own news organizations who advocated his personal views which, through lies and propaganda, convinced most of the population Hitler [Trump] was the only truth-teller. 5. Propaganda (lies) played a major roll in Hitler’s [Trumps] successful rise to absolute power. 6. Hitler’s [Trumps] henchmen clashed, sometimes violently, with the people he claimed to represent. Others carried out violent acts that they thought Hitler [Trump] would approve of. 7. Hitler attacked Jews. 8. Trump attacked Muslims. "Trump is dangerous his campaign should have been warning bells for everyone but still people voted for him" And now America not only have a racist and a bigot staying at the White House but Trump is also a rapist and a paedophile! "nothing but the truth" No secret squirrel here everything that I've raised is well documented! "happy days"

  6. Bob C says:

    Let's hope Trump cuts taxpayer funding of PBS and NPR

  7. Jill Walker says:

    Love our President ! Trump!

  8. Jill Walker says:

    The man who broke the Matrix.

  11. USA Best says:

    I love my President!

  12. Shame on the Democrats and the media for having no other agenda other than wanting the Republican party to go down. If you look at the media coverage and attacks from Democrats, they legitimized and never attacked Trump during the primary. During the general election and afterwards they have piled on.They wanted Trump to win because they thought he would be a weaker general election candidate. Now, they are all crying. Be careful what you wish for!!!

  13. 43:15 easily one of the greatest moments in presidential debate history.

  14. Trump's road definitely paved by putin. Welcome to the new USSA!

  15. I must say, Trump is a Genius. I actually saw a "Film Theory" from Matthew Patrick, Trump literally used tactics from the Reality TV shows (Big Brother, Castaway, Apprentice etc) to defeat his opponents.

    Film Theory: How Trump is Winning with Reality TV

    He made a bad prediction, though, he expected that Donald would not outlast his opponents.

  25. John Issa says:

  26. Exit polls don't lie. Try to splain that Lucy.

  27. Scott Walt says:

    these people are dumb

  28. To b honest I knew he was winning but began to doubt my instinct when tapes were leaked but Trump comeback was unbelievable.

  29. Nonamearisto says:

    Trump has some good points, even if he doesn't articulate them with much tact:

    – Mexico uses the US as a pressure valve for its population. It can't afford to care for all of its people, so many come here. Mexican illegal immigrants work for wages which are often below the legal minimum, which undercuts the US labor force in some sectors, such as restaurants and agriculture. Mexican immigrants (legal and otherwise), send billions of dollars out of the US back to Mexico as remittances, draining the economy of that cash. Finally, Mexico uses the US as a source of factories and markets for the produce of said factories to sell north of the border.

    – Most of NATO doesn't pay enough for its own military. All but five NATO countries fail to spend the recommended minimum of 2% of their GDP (the value of all their goods and services produced in a year) on defense, leaving the US with the bill and responsibility. The US has power and responsibility to use it wisely, but that doesn't exempt other countries in NATO from having to do the same, relative to their ability to do so. 2% is really not asking much.

    – Radical Islamic terrorism is a threat to all civilized nations. Israel, India, the Western World, Christian regions of Africa, nowhere is totally safe. Even China has had to deal with it from time to time. We cannot expect to fight something, let alone win, if we are too afraid even to call it by what it is. This doesn't mean that all Muslims are terrorists or that all terrorists are Muslims, nor did Trump say that they are.

    – The US has the right to control its own borders and control who it lets in and out. This isn't fascism or tyranny; every country has the right to do that. Trump's temporary ban from a handful of unstable and/or tyrannical countries does nothing to violate international law, and might be permissible under US law, but only if the Supreme Court says it is.

  30. Nonamearisto says:

    Trump is anti-establishment, but the establishment was constructed in a time before the internet was as large and useful as it is. Now, the old systems of media and information which supported said establishment are obsolete. Just ten years ago, it would have been very difficult for me to even type this on a major video website, or for this video to get over 100,000 views. Radio and TV news are quaint, and newspapers are downright primitive. This isn't the 1800s anymore.

  31. Nonamearisto says:

    1:14 Does this lighting make him look evil enough? No? Maybe adding some flames would help.

  32. Nonamearisto says:

    I'm surprised the people from PBS didn't read this while fighting back sobs for five minutes and start crying the rest of the way through. Their leftist bias is well-known.

  33. Faegir Volva says:

    Why duo they skip the fact that many of the people who were holding the signs at the Trump rallies were PAID to do that? It's a proven fact. And honestly, they're trying to make him sound good, but they only make him sound more and more disgusting.

  34. i dont want leftys near my kids we dont like leftys

  35. trump wins ahaha goodbuy obam

  36. Mims NYC says:

    One thing he is good at, is brainwashing people.

    This Documentary has a Load of Liberal & phony Republican journalists, I'd suggest watching another documentary on Trump, this one is Not Quite Accurate enough. Fake News. Lol even beautiful , sweet, Awesome Kelly Anne Conway got her info wrong, that he was losing in the polls, the mainstream media polls were FAKE. was very entertaining though lol!

  40. so far I'm still hearing childish rants and look at what I did ..

  41. Jish John says:

    'I am attracted to beautiful, I just start kissing them'. PBS puts a background music on that as if he is talking about preparing holocaust. This is why the left will never again win, ever.

  42. H Eckstein says:

    I love seeing people get triggered by Trump. Trump is the greatest troll ever!

  43. HEINRICXVI says:
