Trump is far more like Stalin than like Hitler. In his conviction only he should make any decisions(and thus government only does what he's interested in, which is very little that has to do with American interests); he rewrites facts that don't suit him and ejects anyone who knows more than him from the government.
And Stalin thought Hitler was his pal.
Till the invasion of Russia, Stalin was happy to deal with Hitler and rather admired him, as they shared many of the same goals and prejudices. So it was both nations that invaded and shredded Poland. Stalin was thrilled because of all the additional land and resources and the chance to purge party members he disliked and slaughter Polish army officers (see: Katyn)
And when Hitler did the obvious thing that he'd done many times before to others, which was fuck him over, Stalin was genuinely shocked, and paralyzed with depression for a week, realizing he'd purged all his best generals.
And this is just how Russia is setting up Trump.
