The issue is that he has not suffered the results. He has not suffered the penalties of an abuse of energy within the first impeachment. Mismanaged covid, try to steal an election into the future. And likewise within the second — and after the riot he was not held accountable.
What discourages him from persevering with to behave as a future authoritarian chief trying to entice Republican state governments from introducing laws that permits them to overturn the need of the folks that vote in a single path? We want accountability. It’s an open wound. With out accountability you possibly can’t transfer ahead.

The rationale why President Biden has not been capable of snap his fingers and transfer America ahead is that the overwhelming majority of the nation wants Trump to be held accountable. Whether or not that accountability is available in a courtroom in New York, Georgia, or Washington, DC, it doesn’t matter.
