Trump plans to spend his second term crushing his enemies — and he doesn’t just mean immigrants and Muslims
His post-impeachment purge will be child’s play compared to what he’ll do in a second term. With henchmen like Attorney General Bill Barr, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe newly emboldened by Trump’s re-election, I don’t even want to think what will become of those the president considers his political enemies in a second term.
That same man, unchanged, was sitting in the White House when the Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality broke out last month. We all saw his reaction. This is the cause he’s been waiting for his whole life. Trump knows that if he is re-elected he will have virtually unlimited power, and he is promising his followers that he is going to use it to fight the culture war. He’s not being metaphorical. He means it quite literally. If you want to know Donald Trump’s agenda for a second term, this is it.
