I'm convinced of just the opposite. The last guy Trump picked for chairman of the Fed, Stephen Moore, said openly that he has never been a big fan of democracy.
And by pretending that we're trending toward some kind of athenian direct democracy, he can acclimate Americans toward hatred of democracy. Of course, we've never been anything but a slightly limited representative democracy inside the framework of a constitutional republic, but that's just the point.
Moore knows that a fascist dictatorship can also be a constitutional republic, and so do the rest of the hardcore Trump Republicans.

And that's what they want. And they'll stop at nothing to get it.
