I doubt Trump will do anything to fix the rigged system. He is taking advantage of it.

Skeletons in the closet...you know The Donald has many, many skeletons in his closet. If he really starts fucking with the people who run this country/planet, those skeletons will be published and prosecuted.

You don't get to Trump's level of "success" without committing ethical violations and gray-area crimes nearly every day. Trump probably knows not to push certain people who have the knowledge of his activities and the ability to do something about them...and consequently, those people still own Trump.

Mussolini and Stalin were both anti-capitalist (as were the Nazis), and both were "revolutionaries" against liberal democratic capitalism, so had a fair bit in common.

Trump actually agrees closely with Sanders with regard to trade policies. They are both against all of these free trade agreements that have helped to move American businesses and jobs overseas. Sanders has voted against every single free trade agreement and strongly opposes the TPP. And Trump... well I guess if he is elected, we'll see if he keeps his word.

And they both oppose illegal immigrants because of their effect on American workers. They are a source of cheap labor that brings wages down. However, while Sanders wants to provide an easier path to citizenship and bring these people "out of the shadows," Trump just wants to kick them all out. So here is agreement on the problem, but a difference on how to solve it.

Don't look at the party that they're running for, they're basically running on the same idea; Use the existing two party system as a platform to stand on. Think of it this way: If Trump wins the Republican nominee, he's basically running as an Independent with no Republican to oppose him in the general election. Same goes for Sanders in regards to winning the Democratic nominee. They're trying to beat their biggest competition in the primaries rather than face them in the general election.
