Art of the Deal or Racketeer

Racketeer used in a sentence via Merriam Webster Dictionary:

<the racketeer threatened to have his thugs vandalize the shop if the shopkeeper didn’t pay him a monthly bribe>

Isn’t threatening to renege on the NATO Treaty with member countries, threatening to not defend them against thugs unless they pay up, acting like a rackateer not like a President of the United States.

I don’t think this rhetoric is one of an artful deal maker, more one of an old timey racketeer.
