This is a good introspective into what Trump is and more importantly, what he represents. He is the cancer on democracy which has evolved from neoliberalism.
"Trump has threatened violence against his political enemies. He has made clear he does not believe in the norms and traditions of American democracy — unless they serve his interests.

Trump and his representatives also believe that he is above the law and cannot be prosecuted for any crimes while in office."
