I completely agree with this column. Democrats have to do more to fight Trump and Republicans in Congress. Trump is getting bolder because he is not being held accountable. Republicans will not stop him.
From the article linked to below:
“In an era of Republican lawlessness, under a president who views political conflict in zero-sum terms, the accommodationist approach has magnified the perverse incentives that appeasing enemies always creates.
In seeking to avoid conflict with Trump, Democrats have freed him to trample the rule of law and fair play without any political downside, and set themselves up to be victims of Republican abuses for years to come.”
