I’m reminded of Ben Franklin’s quote: “A Republic, if you can keep it”. This tells me he suggested the idea that if someone like Trump got elected, it would be the voters’ own fault-one side for running him, and the other side for not running someone who could beat him. And for not voting.
And, since the voters put him in, they can take him out. Hopefully, the lesson of 2018 for 2020 will be, Trump will lose, and if you support Trump, you will lose.
