Trump's election was not the upset that the media narrative says it is.
Let's look at some key points.
1. The Wikileaks hack that infuriated the real left causing them to either vote third party or skip voting.
1a. Positing conspiracy theories (pizza gate, spirit cooking) that energized a lot of usual non voters to the side of Trump.
2 The FBI's October surprise of reopening the Clinton investigation 11 days from election night.
3. The Clinton campaigns refusal to spend time and money in the rust belt states despite warnings from aides and staffers, politics 101 would have had someone notice that they were in trouble here.
4. Manipulated polling data and media narrative of a sure thing Clinton victory. Causing people to either not vote or to vote third party.
5. Social Media complicity in targeted and divisive ads .
See current Facebook scandal etc. Twitter.
6.The selection of Mike Pence, the backing of the Christian Cult known as The Family, the endorsement of mega pastors and The Religious Right at large.
If you take all these together it becomes apparent that everything was stacked to ensure that Trump would win
We are all under a spell, and it's only a matter of time before President Fremont , I mean Presiden Trump will seize power. He is an opportunist and it will only take a terror attack or some calamity for this monster to seize complete control.
While no one is paying attention the CIA is about to seize complete control of The State Department, the worst war crazed neo-con is national security advisor, and a woman who gets sexually aroused by torture is set to head the CIA.

I can see how you might think that Trump is all a big trick but I don’t think so. The left has literally come unhinged over Trump. They are resorting to the most grandiose statements I’ve ever heard. The left definitely hates Trump. The US has always been run by an elite group of people and Trump is not a member of that group. Dems and Reps alike, who are part of the elite group, have attacked Trump unmercifully, more than any president in US history. This is truly unprecedented.
We need change, the change that Barak Obama promised, but never delivered. He actually was a trick.

There is no actual left in America, what you see on the news is corporate neo-liberalism, and they serve Trump by
A) keeping the discussion about it him
B) focusing on distractions like Russia or Stormy Daniels
C) ignore how behind the scenes he is instituting a corporate fascist theocracy.
It is laughable to say he is not part of the elite, he is a billionaire the definition of elite. He meets with Kissinger, he chooses Bolton he promotes the worst people from the Bush Era.
The so called media opposition to him actually plays right into his hands as it makes his followers feel he is being persecuted by the system he promotes

First, the jobs reports were trending up at the end of the previous administration and while campaigning he rightly criticized those reports as misleading until he became POTUS. Studieshave shown that half of the American people are living at or near the poverty line, so the economy is not as strong as presented
However his media allies present it that way, and perception is reality. The Corporations will throw him a bone with modest raises and bonuses, while he dismantles all barriers to their unfettered power.
The military did not need rebuilding. Where is the 21 TRILLION dollars lost by the Pentagon? You think its a good idea to give them more?

First I am a believer in a strong military, as far as where did the 21 trillion go, not sure where you got those numbers from but Obama increased the debt from about 11 to 20 Trillion, where did he spend that money? Obamacare and other social programs we could not afford? At the very least the world wide view of our military dropped like a rock under Obama, Trump is restoring that. Given the threats against the USA, yes we need to spend on the military.
If what you say about the poverty level is true, and I believe many are in that category, it did not happen just with Trump, that has been the result of inflation and the economy since Jimmy Carter. More and more people adjust to what prices go up, and what income is, and the poverty number increases, the middle class keeps being redefined. How raising minimum wage for totally unskilled workers is not just more inflation and really a level of socialism, I don't know. Add to that all the welfare, housing and medical subsidies, that was the mindset of Bernie Sanders idea of socialism, the top 2% will just pay for everything. Yet those with skills, or degrees are just expected to give more and more for those who have no skills, and wonder why they can not live on min wage. I my entire working career union contracts never increased more than 3-4% in raises, but what % is it to increase from $9 to $15 per hour? We let people make careers out of staying on welfare, and milking every social program we all pay for, and young people see socialism as wonderful. We allow all the illegals to use services for free, including hospitals, clinics, enrolling kids in schools our taxpayers pay for, and we have millions with next to no rent with section 8 housing, people milking the permanent disability roles with nonsense. Meanwhile the middle class gets squeezed more and more, and that poverty level number keeps growing.

Yes, they are missing 21T over 10 years, thats more than the entire GDP of Great Britain. We spend more on the military than all other countries combined and that was the case with Obama as well. It is an outright lie that the military needs rebuilding.
You can go on and on about welfare recepients but the true parasites are in the DoD, and the mega corporations who do not pay their fair share, and now pay even less.
Trump is accelerating the debt faster than his predecessors.
