If he wins in 2020, is there anyone here who thinks Trump would not like to have this kind of celebratory parade? This kind of support and adulation?
In your opinion, what does he want? What is he trying to consolidate?
consolidate verb - make (something) physically stronger or more solid.
I was always confused when people accused him of being a crook who just wants to enrich himself because it seems so very obvious to me that his ambition is far beyond monetary.
His tweet where he said something along the lines of “maybe I should have more than 2 terms ... just kidding” eerily reminded me of Caesar having Marcus Antonius offer him the crown (and turning it down) to test how the crowd would react to the idea of him as king.
