If Trump becomes President again. What do you think will happen? [View all]

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!
