True, but also there are degrees of each of them. Some people are ore misguided, less informed, and/or more deceived than others.
I also agree, and while I acknowledge people that I often agree with, I try to avoid having personal heroes.
Being POTUS/running for POTUS means having an impact. AFAICT, Trump is the most influential member of one of the two dominant political parties, which again means he has an impact.
Its kinda funny, I think if the rest of the world had a vote, Biden would win in a landslide, he is definitely the preferred candidate of the global community for no other reason than stability and common sense. From a distance, Biden's failure has been that he hasn't been able to galvanise a coalition in government and articulate a clarion vision for the future in government. Now this isn't a very easy thing to do but its made harder against the background of wreckers who care not for the country or the democracy but for their own narrow interests. It is the same behaviour of the communists parties of Europe and the Nazis in the 30's. The unfortunate thing about our press class and a large section of the community is that they can't recognise what it is or lack the courage to call it out for what it is. Until this happens democracy in the west will remain leveraged by people like Trump and Putin. Let me be clear they are both the same.
America I will say this, western democracy will survive without you but as an idea, as a vision for the world the "global west" will not thrive without you. Nobody serves the enemies of democracy more than Trump and Putin, I'm disgusted by the place he holds in your country but I'm not surprised, the political elite who only serve themselves have left the space for neo fascists like Trump to occupy. Its a sad world we live in.
