EtcetEraThreadBig Brain Time: Is Trump’s presidency worth it if we get Bernie in 2020 instead of Hillary’s hypothetical 2nd term?
ReasonUser Banned (1 week): making a thread based on an inflammatory point of comparison
Just a thought- Trump beating Hillary in 2016 could be a key step in us getting a true leftist president. Had Hillary won in 2016 We’d likely be on our way to the 2nd term of a middling center right presidency. And I’m not sure Bernie would continue to run for a first term after 2020. It’s possible but he’s definitely getting old.
Of course Trump has been harmful to our political institutions and various groups who have faced discrimination under his presidency.
Is this potential tradeoff worth it in your eyes?
