Out of 46 US Presidents, TRUMP is the first one who tried to mount a COOO to stay in power. He told 20000 lies(Washing Post) and even now 18% of Republicans believe in his lies and think that the election was rigged and TRUMP should be president.
After the 1st World War, lies spread that GERMANY lost the 1st WW because of back-stabbing by the Jews and Socialites, resulting in the killing of millions of Jews and the 2nd World War started.
History will repeat here and in the USA, the lies spread by TRUMP will make him the 47th President and that will be the end of democracy in the USA.
Democrats are divided and BIDAN will be too old in the next election. There is no one to challenge TRUMP for the next election for the candidacy for the 47th President among Republicans, and he will be back in the White House. So it is only a question of time when the democracy in the USA will end.

‘The moment to defend our democracy'
Speaking in Atlanta yesterday, President Biden endorsed changing Senate rules and weakening the filibuster to pass new voting rights legislation, warning of a grave threat to American democracy if lawmakers did not act to "protect the heart and soul" of the country.
"This is the moment to defend our democracy," he said.
The procedural change has only the slimmest of chances of winning the support of all 50 Senate Democrats, which would be needed to overcome universal Republican opposition. Biden, an institutionalist who had long been leery of changing the filibuster, said such Senate traditions had been "weaponized and abused."
Renewal of the Voting Rights Act used to be routine and bipartisan. Biden's advisers have promised that he will continue to forcefully support voting rights bills aimed at beating back restrictive voting measures passed through Republican-led statehouses across the country.
Quotable: "I ask every elected official in America," Biden said. "Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor?"
Response: Republicans have argued that Democrats are exaggerating the impact of the new voting restrictions in order to justify a blatant power grab.
