Donald the Orange lost in 2020 and after months of antics and end runs…..Biden has been sworn in as the 46th president to the United States.
But Trump may have sealed his political demise for his actions and words on 06 January.
But say he dodges a bullet and returns to political activity…..which he will.
Now we can look forward to more antics by Trump and those slimy sycophants for the next challenge in 2024.
Whether Donald Trump runs again in 2024 or fades from politics, his enigmatic hold on tens of millions of Americans will be a lesson to the next demagogue. Much will be learned from Trump’s successes in manipulating huge swaths of the public, and also from his failures to translate his autocratic desires into practical power.
Just the fact that 72 percent of Republicans tell pollsters that they believe Trump’s discredited claim that he won the 2020 election is a mark of his perverse success in selling the Big Lie. His outsized personality, his ridiculous assertions, his coarse and insulting talent for channeling resentments felt by masses of alienated citizens placed him so far above reproach in so many minds that his obvious corruption and damage to the country’s reputation and national security made no impact on the committed. After four years of falsehoods, incompetence, and immorality, he won eleven million more votes than in 2016 (up from 63 to 74 million).
He has deftly played the dual role of tough guy and victim, of swaggering bully and persecuted prey. This is a skillful embodiment of the wishes and fears of the millions, mostly white working class, who feel marginalized and dishonored while yearning for the wealth and strength that Trump appears to possess. He has given them the dignity that many feel they have been denied by the liberal, urban, multiethnic society that their country is becoming.
Let’s say Trump decides to NOT return to the campaign trail in 2024….who would care his torch forward?
(This may be a moot point for his CPAC performance Trump is hinting that he will run again 2024….this may put a halt to anyone trying to take up the hatred mantra of Trump by any of the sycophants that pray to him daily)
Who among the GOP are likely to be the next Trump?
There is speculative chatter that one of Trump’s children, perhaps his elder daughter Ivanka, could enter the political arena. But here are some other front-line contenders for the GOP nomination in 2024.
No matter whether Trump runs or not in 2024 his influence on the GOP will be felt for years.
