In many ways Trump core supporters have no political ideology. That's why his lies and ideological inconsistencies don't bother them. There's nobody on the right saying, uh, hey wait a minute, isn't NATO our allies and Russia like, our big bad enemy?

The core of Trumps base is authoritarian. So Trump can be a strongman like Peron or Franco and left, right, or center, his supporters just. do not. care. What they do show is a sense of "getting their own back," or revanchism, a symptom of fascism.
