Vox's Ezra Klein Basically Confirms Trump Is Playing "4D Chess" After MAJOR Media Manipulation. In an article for the Vox, Ezra Klein writes that Trump's tweets are meant to force the Democrats to prop up Ocasio-Cortez and the other far left Democrats in order to make all the Democrats look like far left socialists.Many people on the right and in the center agree, this was a Trumpian "4D Chess" move. A recent poll from Axios shows that most people detest Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez so Trump wants to make sure she remains the center of attention.Trump effectively got Nancy Pelosi to reverse course and give AOC and others a massive platform.But the truth goes one step beyond this. Although its funny to think Trump is playing "4D Chess" the idea is just a silly meme. Then you realize what Trump actually did. For the past several years the Republican President has been able to trick the media into covering his tweets instead of real breaking news.This time Trump pulled off a major "two birds with one stone" while tricking everyone not once, but actually twice.
