@engineer,
Back then, he came out a bit flippant about the risks to the US democracy, indeed...

@Olivier5,
Well back then, most people thought it was a joke. At first we groaned, then we laughed and groaned some more, then it became the unthinkable. Trump is the man you hope never comes to your Aunt's 90th birthday party.

@glitterbag,
I don't know if I wrote about it here at the time, but my fear then was not so much about what damage he could do to the US political system, than about the damage he would do to the nation by empowering racist criminals out there to insult, protest and kill.

I changed my mind about the potential for political damage, BTW. All he needs to do to strongly impact politics in America is to nominate enough supreme court justices and other judges. The judiciary is an important branch of government in its own right.

It also appears increasingly likely that he will also win the next presidential election.

Of which can't be emphasized enough, which fact should have been keenly felt by those Bernie or busters back in 2016 after the primary and Hillary won. They should have put aside their feelings and thought about the judicial branch.

@georgeob1,
I am not as sure as I was just a few months ago. Mostly because of his erratic behavior has even been felt by republicans of late and because of the trade war and Bolton resigning or getting fired for them was probably just one more thing. Republican states must be getting worried because some of them are calling for doing away with their primaries.

@revelette1,
We'll both know late next year. However, our economy continues to do very well for all, and the investigative road ahead is likely to be very rocky for Democrats. Meanwhile none of the Democrat candidates so far has the look or aspect of a winner.
