As my readers know, I have for some time been opining that Trump’s political future is a dead end and that by 2024 he won’t be a prominent factor.
That opinion, much to my astonishment, has not been widely embraced. Indeed Trump fealty among so many cowering elected Republicans in Congress seems to have kept several Senators from deciding not to run again, presumably because of Trump’s control of the GOP.
Consequently, I was heartened to find that a major editorial opinion from the Washington Post succinctly enumerated many reasons for Trump’s plunge to political insignificance.
You can read the Washington Post opinion piece in full here.
But here are a few of the points Post columnist Paul Waldman makes here:
1. Trump is a loser of all the branches.
2. His grip on the GOP is lessening.
3. His image will get worse and worse.
While I have often found strong disagreement with many Republican views, I favor a strong two party system and fear the danger of one party dominance which breeds many ills as such existence has over time in many big cities in the US.
My idealistic hope is for both parties improving their moral compasses after the horror of the Trump era.
We are now rich, powerful and lucky so far to have gained much success. Keeping our present top position will not be easy or simple as other powerful nations arise to challenge us.
Thus, keeping our system as clear of corruption and as transparent as possible (as Biden’s so far seems to be) will not be easy but very important!
Indeed, I am delighted that a major media writer has joined me in predicting Trump’s fade. There will be many more joining us shortly.
