If Trump becomes President again. What do you think will happen?

John Bolton seems a bit concerned but he still thinks Democracy and the checks and balances will hold. I think I would have to go with Bolton's position. Certanly more damage than before but he will be contained. The military won't give in if he attempts that kind of BS which won't surprise me AT ALL!

With only crazy, criminal loyalists in place he will do some damage but salvagable and have to leave in 4 years

He will do major damage, but will still be out in 4 years and we can start to put things back together.

It will be utter chaos, he will pull out all stops to take total control but will fail and be out in 4 years

He will weaponize the DOJ simply for the purpose of creating legal fees for his perceived enemies. Pure spite.

The “illegals” camps will be apartheid ish
He has zero idea how immigrants are the workforce

One of the main points is to run professionals out of service and replace them.

His problem is himself. He turns every swing element off. Media made him in 2016. Media (airtime) did him in in 2020. Wait until the suburbs get a load of him after the 4th of July.

More rope
More shovel
There IS bad publicity

Soda is a killer too. If he won, he might not live to inauguration day.

It will be utter chaos if he wins or loses. He will wage another insurrection that I’m sure his buddies have well planned out. If he actually wins he will begin picking off those who didn’t vote for him. His grifting and denuding of this country will be in full force. We are in trouble either way. Registered Dems will be in grave danger come November.

airline stocks. Canada and Mexico will see increases in cross border travel. This may be the case even if he is not elected should there be significant enough push back by tfg.
