How is America a democratic nation right now under Trump? [View all]

...one party and their president are working every day to evicerate the principles and laws which distinguish our form of government from dictatorships and authoritarian regimes around the globe. How can there be a free and fair election with Trump in office and republicans manipulating the vote at the state level with impunity, no threat to them at all from the Justice Dept.?

We've never been a perfect republic, but we've at least been aspirational in the way we govern and execute our laws. The Trump administration and the president's republican enablers have proven without any doubt or qualifications that they don't believe in free and fair elections, and toil zealously to win at any cost; trampling laws, regulations, and norms which represent centuries of agreement and understanding about the primacy of our representational democracy.

Donald Trump has revealed deep corruption within the republican party for all to see by brushing right past protections and openly manipulating the vote, hoping to win ugly, knowing full well that our system of accountability for election crimes committed by campaigns and nominees absolutely collapsed under republican rule.

Trump just doesn't give a damn how it looks anymore...
