Winning the Senate will be the least of the Democrats troubles if they win the White House. Even Spearker of the House Nancy Pelosi knows Trump will not be leaving the Presidency if he loses. That’s right friends the Donald ain’t going anywhere. The United States has had a peaceful transfer of power ever since George Washington started the tradition, and even with the election of Abraham Lincoln’s election as the nation was heading into civil war in 1861 power was transferred smoothly.

But there is nothing peaceful or gracious about Trump. He will simply say his defeat is a hoax, a deep state rob job and refuse to give up power. The potential for dictatorship grows nearer everyday, unless most around him refuse to stay on. We shall see.
