I don’t think many people thought it could not get any worse. In fact f think most think it will get worse.Ever since Trump was elected there has been real concern that the US will turn into another Nazi Germany. That concern is still there although there is some relief that a dictatorship was not established quickly as occurred in Germany. But all Trump has to do to establish a dictatorship is to follow what is transpiring in Turkey. And Putin himself is another example. What probably should be most concerning is Trump has a large cult-like following. About 85% of registered Republicans typically agree with whatever he does including separating children from families and his behavior during the press conference with Putin. Unlike a normal political following there is no judgements being made about Trump, support is there no matter what. We should assume his supporters would approve of concentration camps, unleashing right wing paramilitary groups, etc. There should be real reason for concern that things will get much worse.
