Based on how Trump is described in this, I would say this confirms my view that having Trump in office is strategically advantageous because he is a chaos agent that keeps the wider ruling class/power elite in a state of confusion. And having him as the leader of the GOP in a way that is not about policy but about his own personality cult is strategically advantageous because Trump has the effect of cockblocking outright neocon tools like Rubio, Cruz, Cotton, anyone associated with the Bush family, etc. If he runs again in 2024, hopefully he will keep the chaos coming.
