Washington Post columnist Robert Kagan on Thursday delivered a stark warning about the future of the American republic, which he said was going to come under great strain thanks in large part to the actions of former President Donald Trump.

Kagan starts off by dispelling the notion that Trump will not run for president in 2024.

"Donald Trump will be the Republican candidate for president in 2024," he writes. "The hope and expectation that he would fade in visibility and influence have been delusional. He enjoys mammoth leads in the polls; he is building a massive campaign war chest; and at this moment the Democratic ticket looks vulnerable. Barring health problems, he is running."

Kagan goes on to warn that Trump and his allies are "preparing for victory by any means necessary," through "an organized nationwide campaign to ensure that Trump and his supporters will have the control over state and local election officials that they lacked in 2020."

Kagan then warns Americans that they should not be certain that the constitutional order will again hold if it comes under assault for a second time in three years.

"All that prevented it was a handful of state officials with notable courage and integrity, and the reluctance of two attorneys general and a vice president to obey orders they deemed inappropriate," he writes. "These were not the checks and balances the Framers had in mind when they designed the Constitution, of course, but Trump has exposed the inadequacy of those protections."

This essay is alarming and should concern us all - regardless of political ideology. There is much more to this essay on the The Washington Post website. I totally agree with Robert Kagan's warnings.

If Trump runs & wins we can kiss our Democratic Republic goodbye forever. Once it's gone it's all over. Trump will burn this entire Country down just to even the score with his enemies because he's a FUCKING PSYCHOPATH.

Democrats had better regroup & get their shit together.

Conspiracy theory silliness. How quaint.

No, it's a serious warning from a very smart man.

I totally agree! I can't imagine the Trump crooks and grifters back in the White House and running our government. It's chilling.

It will be a catastrophe & that's putting it mildly. Trump is capable of anything. He's crazy & evil.
^ More Democrat projection.

Trump and his supporters are laying the groundwork to rig the 2024 presidential election. There will probably never be another rigged election like 2024. It will be the mother of all rigged elections.

Look, I agree. For the life of me I cannot fathom why Biden picked Harris as his running mate. I don't know if she's a racist or not but Biden missed the boat when he picked her.

Biden could have done better - or worse. The main thing is that he won - and kicked Trump out of the White House. The best thing we can do now is try to keep Trump out of the presidency in 2024.

These guys and their crystal balls (or lack thereof).

Didn't they make the same claims in 2015 and all throughout Trump's term in office?

Do you believe race baiters like Al Sharpton are "Racists" The narrative is only white people and cops are Racists. "Race Baiters of any Color are Racists" yes or no? if no what's the difference please enlighten me if you care too!

All of America is in for a "bumpy ride". Only NaziCon autocrats could enjoy such a ride.
