Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
Well the true bar for Trump would have been, should have been, the Republican Party.



The entire world is beset with demogogues and autocrats usurping democracies:
India
Poland
Hungary
Russia (they were trying for a democracy for the second time in a hundred years).
Turkey
Phillipines

Most of these leaders have been genuinely, for want of a better word, elected.

And then there's Venezuela.

The EIU Democracy Index now rates the United States as a "flawed' democracy, but at least we're ahead of Botswana.
