Keep in mind it sounds like he was actually largely an executor of the public opinion. Basically he shouted a bunch of stuff, and whatever people cheered at the loudest is what he chased.
Doesn't make him any less of an butt-hole; a good man would be like "Wait, whoa, that's not right", not line up all the Jews and gas them, but he just rolled with the public opinion. Not all of it, but probably a good, loud portion of it. Remember that H3H3 podcast with Jordan Peterson? I actually drew some surprising parallels between, please forgive me for saying this, Hitler and Trump. Basically it's two dudes on a podium feeling out for what people think are causing the problems they have, and when they find a sweet spot (Illegal immigrants! Bengazi! Private email servers!) they just run with it.
Of course, Trump's not setting up concentration camps, he's basically executing the law of the land, which is fine and a distinguishing differentiation between the two, obviously. But they're both heavily creatures of public opinion.
