Trump loves the hate and violence because it is both in his nature and he knows he benefits from it for several horrifying reasons:
– It fires up his racist base.
– A fired-up racist base increases the chance for more hate crimes and violent protests in response.
– If the hate crimes (which more than likely are/will be strategic in nature) and violent protests as a response continue, this, along with the stronger reemergence of Covid-19 in the fall, will allow him cover for declaring martial law.
– Once martial law is declared, even though the constitutionality of it is thin, he will postpone the election.
