31. One key difference that might make all the difference in the future

is that Nixon was intelligent enough to know when he was beaten so he went away knowing he would be pardoned. And he lived to become an elder statesman

Trump is mentally incapable of such a strategy.

I know Trump doesnít care about this country by his actions so far, but itís a mixed bag with Nixon. Wealth didnít seem to be Nixonís goal. At least not at first sight. He obviously wanted power. I may be wrong but wasnít he the first person to say the American President is the most powerful man in the most powerful nation in the world?

Who knows, maybe he had more profound issues with fundamentalist religion than we know. In any case he was a far more complex person than Trump.
