Greg Sargent writes in the WP that the Faustian bargain between Trump and Reps is about to unravel

Greg Sargent writes that the bargain is about to unravel because it is coming up on the reality of the dates of certification and when the electors meet in December.

He says that the agreement is actually already unraveling because Trump seems to be mad at the Republicans because they haven't gone far enough to support him.

IMO I would agree and would further say that this might backfire because once those electors vote in January and Biden is elected then the base is going to be deflated no matter what.
