How did Trump and the Republican Party respond to the election?
Trump is in the midst of the largest midterm landslide in American history.
That was true even before the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.
And Trump is likely to be the next president.2.
Who was on the ballot?
In 2020, voters in Georgia and South Carolina cast their ballots for a president who ran on a populist platform of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.
In South Carolina, for instance, Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with assaulting a reporter.3.
How many of the people who voted for Trump are still alive?
According to the New York Times, Trump has survived almost every primary challenge he’s faced, including the one that killed his opponent, Sen. Joe Manchin III, in 2020.
In 2018, he won reelection by one point.4.
Who will be next?
There are currently three Republican candidates in 2020: Trump, Ohio Gov.
John Kasich, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani’s supporters will make a bid for the White House in 2020, while Trump and Kasich are likely to run.
The next president is likely going to be whoever the next Republican president is.5.
Is this a moment for Republicans to revive the American Dream?
The American Dream is the one central theme in Trump’s political philosophy: that it is possible for all Americans to work hard and achieve success.
It’s the one thing that he has repeatedly said he can do for all of us.
But he and his party have done a terrible job of pushing it into the national spotlight.
In 2020 and beyond, there will be no time for complacency about how to improve the Dream.
In order to be a real part of this, Americans will have to take back the Dream and work together to create a stronger, more inclusive society.
