Let’s review how Trump won his electoral votes

1. character assassination
2. fear-mongering
3. international allies like Vladimir Putin and Julian Assange
4. domestic white supremacist and xenophobic allies
5. lies including but not limited to fake news
6. mobilizing violent elements at his own events
7. making the Republican “big tent” idea into his own circus show
8. simplifying complex issues into 140-character rants
9. channeling desperate people’s anger for his own purposes

Is this a recipe for future political campaigns? Not if the American public shows it won’t tolerate such self-serving and anti-democratic bully tactics ever again! And not if government solves some of the domestic problems that caused the feat and despair alluded to above.
