He decided that Humanity should build a wall and make the Kaiju pay for it. His plan didn't get underway until 2020, during the end of his first term, because the public loved the Jaeger program, which started before Trump entered office.

[[WMG: The incompatible atmosphere is pure fraud]]
Because this theory needs to be brought up three times. But it wasn't that the Earth's atmosphere was incompatible back then, it's that the dinosaurs were kicking kaiju ass! Rather than admit to their superiors or their workers that the new speed grown adaptable kaiju were being defeated by beings less than a thirtieth of their size, a supervisor desperate to hold onto his position made up something about air quality and insisted the time was not right. In truth the air quality actually got worse, but the supervisor sees that the average size of planet 23.3's dominant terrestrial macro fauna became even smaller and wants to hurry up with the project before he gets caught in a lie. Suffice to say, ''someone'' is getting fired when the general manager discovers that not only has a docking bay been blown to pieces but the smoldering crater where it used to be is now radioactive and several employees are filing for worker's compensation.

[[WMG: The atmospheric pollution comment was a misunderstanding]]
The rift looters didn't have trouble in the dinosaur age because of too few carbon emissions but because of too many. If they wanted a lot of green house gases nothing was opposing them on Venus. The looters actually think the sudden spike in carbon emissions are an effort by humanity to thwart their own industrial efforts and are therefore rushing underdeveloped kaiju towards human production centers in an effort to keep the atmosphere at desirable levels. The one human scientist who did a neural drift with a ''damaged'' kaiju brain? He got it wrong, specifically because his areas of expertise were physiology and the nervous system. He was not a climate scientist and likely only knew "climate change bad".

** Now that the Godzilla remake is out, this is possibly Jossed. Godzilla was awakened in the 1950s and not in the 21st Century. Also Godzilla was mutated not by [[spoiler:Striker Eureka's nuke.]] but by nuclear attacks disguised as tests. **
** However,[[spoiler: both Film/KongSkullIsland and Godzilla confirm that they kept other Kaiju, like the Skullcrushers and the Mutos in their respective films in check like hunters. Both films establish that humans aren't too bright when it comes to dealing with Godzilla and King Kong so sometime after their big cross over event, both monsters are killed by humans, thus allowing the Kaiju from Pacific Rim to emerge. ]]

** The problem with all these theories connecting ''Pacific Rim'' to ''MonsterVerse'' is that there timelines just don't match up. In the ''Pacific Rim'' timeline, the first kaiju appeared in 2013 and destroyed the Golden Gate Bridge. In the ''MonsterVerse'' timeline, Godzilla destroyed the Golden Gate Bridge and kaiju were already known to humanity. As such if the two series existed in the same universe, there would be severe ContinuitySnarl that would require massive retcons. Sorry kaiju fans but this is all Jossed.

Hermann and Newt are Drift-compatible, so when the shit hits the fan they'll get a neural bridge ready and kick ass... but they'll do so by [[CrazyAwesome mindjacking a kaiju through a collected brain]] and [[SoCoolItsAwesome get a kaiju to defect]].

* Also, remember Raleigh "went out of synch first." He unexpectedly flashed back to Yancy's death, but he was experienced enough in the Drift to get back under control. That traumatic memory triggered Mako's own traumatic memory, and she wasn't experienced enough to rein it back in.

The film is about monsters invading Earth from another dimension, only this time humanity has giant mechs instead of a mute theoretical physicist with a crowbar. Also GLaDOS didn't go rogue and is helping the humans fight of the monsters.

* The Jaegers are either produced at or were initially designed by Aperture Laboratories, causing Cave Johnson to become rich (for a change), not suffer mercury (or moon-dust) poisoning, not try to put Caroline into the AI system, and thus not have a rampant GLaDOS. We all know that GLaDOS was uploaded as the AI in the earlier Jaegers.

Especially the older ones. "Gipsy Danger isn't digital, it's analogue!" ....analogue....nuclear. With electronic displays and GlaDOS. HaHaHaNo. By his own admission, Raleigh wasn't an expert on electronics. But when you're hooked into the mental link; it doesn't matter; especially if one is driven by sheer will. Hercules unfortunately knew enough about modern electronics that the EMP wave could effect Striker Eureka; his broken arm was painful enough to interfere with his will. (Chuck didn't know enough about electronics, and Pentecost and Mako were driven enough that it didn't matter.)

Since the first movie came out, the crew of Cherno Alpha has seen an increasing amount of popularity inside the fandom. Gulhermo del Toro himself is pretty aware of this, so it's not totally impossible for them to reappear in the sequel of the upcoming animated series. They were not dead. Just couldn't find the way to the beach in time for the end of the movie.
