Indeed, he is signaling. Many of his followers want this as bad as he does. But there are 2 factors that Americans could use to turn it around.
1) 25% of Americans voted for him. 75% did not. Those 75% of voices could make a difference.
2) Even if he wins, a blue sweep in the senate will do the same. Because there's never just one option. Even if Biden wins, a red senate won't allow much change.
We don't really think it's all on Trump, do we? The senate makes a big difference. A red senate and it's going to get real ugly. Blue senate, maybe different story. Y'all need to sweep the senate.
