I was born and brought up in the US, but I’ve lived in Canada for many years now. I still have a lot of interest in events in the US, and I want the US to do well. I am really afraid of what is going to happen in the next few years. Two possibilities: If somehow Trump manages to escape punishment for his very obvious crimes, and if (horror of horrors) he manages to get elected again, that will be a disaster for US democracy, such as it is. If he is charged and tried and found guilty and sent to prison (all of which should happen), then his rabid supporters could go completely crazy and cause all kinds of disruption. In any case, I predict a lot of trouble for the US in the next few years.
