All politicians and world leaders are blackmailed, compromised, and programmed. This is why they promise everything and deliver nothing. Their job is to feign progress while pushing agenda. To keep people caught up in smoke and mirrors and manufactured drama. Trump is no exception. Assange is just another aspect of the dialectic. They are ALL players.
These people are propped up to be used as anchors for the masses. Once you invest in these figureheads, they will then direct your belief system and move you into directions that benefit the agenda. This is the Illuminati system, and it is how they manipulate world populations like mindless cattle.
None of them stand for people. They serve themselves and their Cabal. They lie and deceive as a rule.
Understanding their true nature destroys their power.
