I think Trump being reelected will double down on the polarization from the left while the anger on the right would deflate because he could no longer be on the ballot and will still be a fat balding old man.
I'm not sure your views represent the average American, though. A lot of us, even though we are opposed to Trump, know some supporters and can't afford to simply dismiss them all as deplorables.

I think red states will be fine with their own religious dictatorships and won't try to conquer blue states unless given a reason to.

And one would think this would start from the far right religious cultists. Although, if you remember how Gilead operated we are seeing many of the same things coming from the left here and now.


destroying historical monuments
suppressing speech
banning words
inciting violence on those that think differently.

If Trump wins, California will become it's own country, elect it's own President, and many people from other states will defect creating a whole new level of border problems and the potential of another wall.

I also expect new, more equitable trade deals struck with america's trading partners that will greatly benefit American workers.


You mean like all that landmark legislation that was passed in the first two years of this administration which were exactly as you wish for above?


History would indicate that your expectations are a bit baseless.

Nothing will change if Trump is re-elected.

Liberals will still hate conservatives, and vice versa.
The big corporations will still own / run the country.
Millions of illegals will continue to pour across the border.
China will continue to steal our technology and manufacturing.
Millions of jobs will continue to be lost to automation and outsourcing.
The military industrial complex will continue to get new wars to keep the money flowing.
Carbon dioxide emissions will continue to rise as nuclear plants are steadily replaced with natural gas plants.
Old white men will still be waiting for their 1950s manufacturing job to come back.
The Rust Belt will continue to decline.
Conservatives will keep hating California and New York.
Liberals will keep hating the South and Midwest.
College and healthcare costs will continue to skyrocket.
The standard of living will continue to decline for everyone but the top 1%.

In other words, it will be business as usual.

He will continue to divide the country. If re-elected, after he has served, everyone even his own supporters will resent him for what he has done to this country.

Well, I'm sure electing one of the Democrats' preferred socialists will certainly unite everyone.

Give me a break. The left has been dividing this country for years, and Saint Obama was the worst culprit.

More people around him will be indicted and maybe go to jail. He will still be the untouchable that he is now.

Yes he will continue to divide the country but his supporters will never resent him. They don't care if he completely destroys the country. To them, if that's what it takes to get their fundamentalist Christian dictatorship, then so be it.

The 'America' that his supporters love, to them, died when the sexual revolution happened and the civil rights act passed in the Sixties. The 1950s their ideal society and they will stop at absolutely nothing to force us all back there.
