Of course I know that but what can you do about it?

Like what can I do about the result of the po ...

There's nothing I can do about Trump trying to install an ultra-right wing conservative in the Supreme Court.
If Kavanaugh is installed his primary agenda is to make abortion illegal in the USA.
The USA is regressing, not progressing and Trump is responsible.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Austin has a point here.  Its not all Trump's fault, but also his fan base that is cheering him along.  We can vote Trump out of office, but we can't vote out his fan base.   Americans have radicalized in this country.  There is no doubt about it.  I saw it happening way before the election with the response to black lives matter.  White nationalism is taking over.  Trump didn't start that, but he did exploit those feelings to get elected.

Trump is the driving force for all the hatred and backward mentality of the USA today.

If nobody agreed to be the grand wizard of the ku klux klan do you think they would exist today?

Vote Trump out? Trump became president with about 2,900,000 fewer votes that Hillary.
That was a result of a broken and antiquated constitution what was written before the
invention of the steam engine. Written primarily by slave owners who were rebelling against
the old world in Europe so they could perform genocide on the new world native inhabitants
for profit and land grabs.

I agree he is a driving force.  Absolutely.

I just also fault those who cheer him on.  IDK- I think that is scarier.   The way they eat it all up and cheer it on.  When he said 'mexicans are rapists' and the crowd cheered wildly?  It was the crowd that I found the most disturbing.

Sure.  But your point just makes everything just more hopeless.  One man we can deal with.  But a nation of people who think just like him?  Much harder to deal with.  I just don't have much hope for this country anymore and honestly I wish other countries, like our allies, join together and forcibly condemn his administration.  I think sanctions are justified at this point.  We are committing human rights abuses.
