The world got to see just how deranged the trump is in his expectation of how a democracy should operate. Yet we know this much, he doesn't think our national constitution is modern enough. In fact he thinks it is archaic and is bad for our nation, http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-us-constitution-archaic-really-bad-fox-news-100-days-trump-popularity-ratings-barack-a7710781.html. Well he must constantly be reminded that he was elected by the electoral college, an outdated paternalistic system of control that allowed for the minority vote winning candidate to become president. So he has no mandate whatsoever and more so he is the one who is outdated and archaic in his understanding of how our nation operates in a democracy by his show of making his cabinet members, in a humiliating public way, show fealty to him.
The trump does not want our democracy to remain considering his actions. It feels and proves like he wants to be an absolute leader who has no one to check and balance his decisions that effect all of us Americans and indirectly the world on whole. He admires the dictators of the world and lets them do as they will without any condemnation. But he has condemned our democratic allies and made a fool of himself and an unwanted partner in many of our allies combined policies. The worst dynamic from the election of 2016 is that our democratic way of life is now in jeopardy by a man who has more vanity than sense. If we Americans survive this coup of sorts it will be because we gave him no benefit of the doubt and instead stood fast and hard against every democracy destroying act he attempts to accomplish.
