S01E16 – Was Trump on his way to becoming a dictator?

In this episode of Finding Common Battlegrounds, we tackle the question of whether Trump was (or was going to become) a dictator. We agree on some basic definitions – dictator, authoritarianism, totalitarianism, and fascism. We then agree that Trump was not a dictator despite many dictator-like tendencies, but primarily because of the checks and balances that exist in the US government. We also agree that Trump was/is a terribly cruel, unkind, tyrannical human being. His moral character makes him a difficult political candidate for Josh to stomach.
