The trouble is, these days, with technology and all the environmental, economic and human crises, very bad things can happen very fast. Trump is temporary, but he'll leave a wide swathe of devastation - not least, as the harbinger of this current spate of fascist, fascist-like and fascist-lite administrations world-wide. I'm not saying it's his personal fault, only that his prominence has encouraged all the wood-worms to come forth. Most of them won't be as easy to replace as he is...
...and I'm somewhat apprehensive as to the agenda of the president-in-waiting, should Trump spontaneously combust or bit a peach.
Seriously he might manage to be devastating to the American public, but it is far less likely to have much impact on the rest of the world, beyond Palestine.
