To stop Donald Trump from becoming president, journalists, activists, and government officials are undermining democracy in the name of saving it

After Donald Trump’s landslide victory in the Iowa caucuses yesterday, both CNN and MSNBC refused to carry his speech, instead airing speeches by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said that the danger of Trump’s triumph came not just from him but also from his supporters. “If we’re worried about our democracy falling to an authoritarian and potentially fascist form of government, the leader who is trying to do that is part of that equation,” she said, “but people wanting that is a much bigger part of that equation.”

If reelected in 2024, Donald Trump is likely to politicize the US military, NBC News reported on Sunday. During his last term, according to NBC, some of Trump’s appointees prevented him from abusing his presidential powers, but in 2024 Trump will surround himself with only loyalists. “Now, bracing for Trump’s potential return,” wrote NBC reporters, “a loose-knit network of public interest groups and lawmakers is quietly devising plans to try to foil any efforts to expand presidential power, which could include pressuring the military to cater to his political needs.”
