[Marxism] Prediction: Trump won't last

I've taken to watching CNN news - something I've never done before. Every
night is a full-on campaign for a half hour or more against Trump. There
hasn't been anything like it since the Watergate scandal, when the
capitalist class determined that Nixon had to go. This time, as in this
report <https://oaklandsocialist.com/2017/02/16/the-trump-putin-connection/>
from
a month ago, the issue is that they are now convinced that Trump is
determined to look out more for his own financial interests than for the
interests of his class as a whole. (The basic issue is that Russian
financiers have invested over $100 million in his buildings, and he'll
never forget that.) In addition, he has so discredited himself and his
entire administration with his tweets that, as many on CNN - both the
talking heads and the politicians - have commented, "who will believe him
if he has to take action against North Korea or Syria?"

but what will happen if he goes? While Pence is reliable (for them) he
doesn't have the base of true believers that Trump has, and that base will
be infuriated if Trump goes, even if he goes through "natural" causes
(which they will never believe, and they'll probably be right). And as for
the rest of us, there will be such jubilation that all hell is liable to
break loose. They're in a situation of damned if he lasts and damned if he
doesn't.

Here <https://oaklandsocialist.com/2017/03/21/will-trump-survive/> is an
update.
