I'm not intending to comment further regarding Trump or the situation in the US.   I really have little interest in US politics aside from my recognition, as an overseas lay observer, that there is, regrettably, a lot wrong with (or in) the US and that Trump is so obviously deranged.   The saddest thing is that he has (or has had) so much support from people whose mentality and values are questionable.

Worldwide energy now needs to be focussed on tackling Covid-19.

I think in a nutshell, you have identified the current status. 

This was a chance for a non-politician to 'clean-sweep' the usual resistant mire of politics that tends to bog everything down. A chance for someone who many believed had his wits about him, and could make change. 4 years on we can see this administration wasn't about making America great again, but feeding the biggest ego seen in politics for a very long time. 

If Weinstein thought he was being persecuted/chased, what lies ahead for Trump with the American judiciary will surely be in another league. Not only will Trump be sought through the courts, so will what's left of the Trump business. No-one expects his current wife to hang around either.

And an indicator of that ......

Notice the Louboutins have gone,  replaced by casual flat shoes that go along with potato sack dress she is wearing. Designer it might be, unflattering it certainly is.

As an American, all I can say is, the damage done by the Trump administration may NEVER be repaired. His almost cult-ish followers are a frightening bunch. And he STILL has many supporters in Congress. Hopefully the Biden administration will actually be able to get things done in the next 4 years.

Cult-ish?   I detect a spelling error - and no need for 'almost' either!

Fair enough. Can't really argue with that.

As a foreigner, we are repeatedly told America is the home of capitalism and to us foreigners, it does appear to be the case. That isn't necessarily good for anyone in the US unless they own a business with a good income from it. For employees, things don't seem to be so great. Lose your job, probably lose your healthcare. Some places we understand, workers don't get a wage, their income comes from tips. Consequently, in some places, tipping is mandatory. American business models brought 'zero hour contracts' to the UK.    

When so many people work for businesses with the word Trump in the title, it's likely the owner will to some have a seemingly god-like status. I would suggest it's a false impression provided by someone of little substance. I have read a couple of times recently "history" will not be kind to Trump. From the little I know of his actual achievements and behaviour patterns, I would say he earned that unkindness.
