1. So what?

Trump's white supremacists are a very small minority. They really aren't organized and they really can't cause big enough trouble to topple our government and economy.

Look, I know they can be violent and some people could get hurt or killed. But consider the worst white supremacist acts in our history, say, Timothy McVeigh's bombing in Oklahoma City. Did he accomplish anything for his "movement?" Nope. He just killed a lot of people and gained nothing from his action except the death penalty.

Trump has not gained supporters in the past 4 years but he's certainly lost some. It's very difficult for me to see how Trump could foment a civil war given the diversity and size of our country. That doesn't mean he won't try but has Trump ever succeeded at anything?
