11. I don't think Donald Trump has a coherent ideology

He may indeed be a racist but that is primarily the sociopath in him, as opposed to being committed to any kind of movement with a longstanding agenda.

Given that Steve Bannon was his campaign's executive director and will be his closest advisor in the White House it seems likely that White Nationalism will characterize his presidency and policies. And yes, I think the fascist label applies.

My point is that everything else is subservient to this narcissist feeding his ego. He is more committed to the glorification of Donald Trump than to any ideology, and that is the key to understanding his motives.
