The 2024 election is just over a year out. The likely Republican nominee for president is facing multiple criminal charges — stemming from the last time he held the job. The more crimes Trump is accused of, the more the GOP base rallies around him. Because today’s Republican party wants authoritarianism, they wanted Trump’s coup attempt to succeed. They don’t want elections or the will of voters to get in the way of their agenda. They want to seize power. Donald Trump was the guy willing to do it for them, and they’re happy to back him for the job again.
