What Trump wants

is to provoke something that is frightening enough to his natural supporters1 that enough of them will vote for him to keep in him power2. Black people marching in paramilitary uniforms look pretty fucking terrifying if you are a white racist who is very frightened of black people. This is what the things happening in Portland & elsewhere are about: he is baiting people enough that they do something he can portray as really, really terrifying to people who are already scared out of their minds.

And look.

  1. His natural supporters being white racists who live their lives in fear of everything, but particularly of black people. 

  2. If he loses power and the protections that go with it, then he is in very serious trouble: he will do anything to keep power.
