Preventing Donald Trump’s re-election will take everything the Democrats have – Donald Trump’s America – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

US Vice President Mike Pence watches as President Donald Trump holds his hands to his head while standing in front of a US flag.

He is the most unpopular president in modern American history, with poll approval ratings consistently in the low-to-mid-40s.

Mr Trump has successfully trashed the institutions of accountability — especially Congress and the mainstream press — so that he can keep his balance and control of his narrative.

The Republican congressional leadership has collapsed into a spineless, subservient heap at Mr Trump’s feet, even as he alters the party’s DNA on balanced budgets, tax reform, American exceptionalism, free trade, immigration, the promotion of democracy and opposition to dictatorships.
