During his Saturday speech, a full 10 days into the war, Trump not only trashed NATO but shopped a World War III scenario, which just goes to show how profoundly destabilizing this Russian invasion is for members of the far right who have allied themselves with Putin. According to a CBS source, Trump called NATO a “paper tiger” and asked, “Are all of these nations going to stand by and watch perhaps millions of people be slaughtered as the onslaught continues? At what point do countries say, ‘No, we can’t take this massive crime against humanity?’ We can’t let it happen. We can’t let it continue to happen.”

A month ago, U.S. News & World Report wrote that Trump’s “iron grip over the Republican Party appears to be weakening.” They pointed out that “white male voters without a college degree overwhelmingly supported Trump in 2020, with exit polls showing the Republicans taking that voter group by a 70% to 28% margin. But YouGov’s poll found that half of that group see Trump in a favorable light now, with 46% of them disapproving of Trump.”

It’s hard to imagine that the constant stream of Ukraine footage showcasing Putin’s brutality won’t further destabilize the far right.
