As we now find our democracy under supreme attack by the GOP—which wants to do nothing for our future except keep minorities from their civil right to vote—we realize with that massive unneeded corporate tax cut to 21 percent at the start of Trump’s Presidency, he captured their fealty and let them pay even less taxes than they were paying, although many big companies are paying very little so they could buy back their stock!
Then Trump takes great effort to sow racial fear to many unthinking white Americans, many working pay check to pay check, who had failed to understand what 400 years of racism had done to so many African Americans, Jews and other immigrants who have helped make the USA rich and powerful.
So we are being pushed now by the GOP toward the precipice of failure just when our economy is bouncing back from the pandemic and our major vaccine gifts to the rest of the world should make our democratic principles more desirable to more here and abroad than ever.
Trump has been cut off from Facebook and other similar means of sending his big lie message, but still repeats it at every opportunity. His clear bias for Putin was expressed in a message he gave to the mass media in which he advised Biden not to fall asleep during his Putin meeting and claimed he had great success in his meetings with Putin which go unsubstantiated.
And now we understand from Reuters about the potential threats to those election workers which you can read here.
Let's be clear. The very real – and unacceptable – threats election officials continue to receive for defending democracy are a *direct consequence* of those recklessly calling for fake audits & other attempts to keep the #BigLie alive. It needs to stop.https://t.co/DR9Owy8mxs

This kind of activity sounds like the build up to Hitler’s takeover in the early 1930’s in Germany.
Even Trump’s past hard core helpers must be getting nervous as with Don McGahn’s recent testimony which you can read here.
The build up to Trump’s political downfall before the mid term elections which I have been predicting is now well in progress.
The former White House counsel’s testimony breaks little factual ground beyond what was in the Mueller report. But it paints a picture in another way… Don McGahn’s unflattering portrayal of Trump https://t.co/5fCy5Zf1Zf
