The repercussion of damage done by this man will take centuries to undo, if ever.

The rest of the world no longer views the USA with respect and esteem.

Because the USA will be viewed as unstable because of the threat of having a crazy president every four years. Why would any country enter into any meaningful agreement with the USA if in 4 years, a crazy can be elected to undo everything?

The great American experience/experiment is toast......

2. I'm not holding out much hope the USA will even try to recover our

lost rights and protections.

3. Generations

This will take generations to undo. And you're right, the world will view the US as one election from installing a madman indefinitely.

My Canadian friends ask me often about if they should be scared. I always answer, "Yes, you should be terrified, if Trump stays in power, it's just a matter of time before he starts invading countries to take their resources."

4. Some people are naive in thinking

That once he is out of office things
will go back to normal. He has
opened the door for divisive policies
, openly manifested racism alienated
Our friends and diminished our
Idealism to spread democracies
and human rights across the globe.
His trade policies will hurt the poor and the
Middle class. He failed in Asia, Africa,
The Middle East and Europe .
So what is lift to ruin.
His only so called achievement is a smoke
And mirror stock market fueled by
Tax cuts used by corporations
To buy back their own stock instead
Hiring and producing more goods and services.
But what surprise me the most is
when some say he is not worth impeaching
because we don't have the votes
On the senate and it will be divisive
For the country. Breaking news
The country is already divided and
If we make a case to the American
People and the senate vote against
It it will be a major blow to the
Republicans in the next election.
Parties may come and go, elections
may be won or lost. But America
will remain and should always
be our focus, a goal well worth
Fighting for.

5. The USA will never be trusted again in our lifetimes.

The USA is always one General Election away from installing another psychopath with plenty of GOP henchmen. We just can't be trusted.

6. Spot on. It's bad. How the hell did we get here?

There are so many factors to blame and the repug party is right in the middle of all of them. Our education system has been continually undermined and underfunded and under attack by the repugs for decades resulting in stupid magats running around cheering and voting for a blasphemous fool masquerading as president who is stoking racism and anti-immigrant fervor.

What could go wrong with that? Every effin' thing.

Other factors are long-extant daggers hanging over the countries head. We've never deal openly and in good faith with what was done to black people, Native Americans and Latinx and idiot trump has been able to exploit that and even further divide the country.

What could go wrong with that? Every effin' thing.

Then of course there is the sexism that trump even seems to be proud of. There is the export of so many jobs, which of course is and has been down by American corps not content with good profits with American works. It's always about making even more profits by moving jobs overseas to exploit lower paid workers.

What could go wrong with that? Every effin' thing.

I could go on and on and on.

7. As demonstrated by the thoughtful replies to this op, this is a serious issue.

This is a serious issue that is not going to self resolve.

8. If Trump is reelected, then we can kiss what was the USA goodbye.

If all that is required for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing, then come election day if everybody on the Left does not make the choice to get out and vote for the Democratic candidate for president, the only person who can stop Trump, they are doing nothing to stop his evil.
