Fascism has often been defined as the merger of corporate and state interests, combined with belligerent nationalism. Donald Trump has now put an unprecedented number of lobbyists - nearly 300 - according to a ProPublica and Columbia Journalism Investigation - in powerful positions throughout government. We are literally witnessing the takeover of the executive branch by corporate interests. From the EPA to the department of interior, lobbyists are running the show. This kind of corruption should be at the top of our list of things to change with regard to campaign and election law.
