Do I expect to see much unrest if and when Trump is called up on criminal charges? Each time that happens?
In short, no. The number of people who’ll resort to violence for Trump isn’t that great. For those that do, there are heavy precautions in place.
We’ve seen from the January 6 trials that those who resort to violence get the book thrown at them. An awful lot of them are being sentenced to the maximums allowable. That has a chilling effect -which is probably intentional.
Even hardcore supporters of Trump recognize he has a lot of baggage. They are looking for someone else to vote for.
My main concern of this post is not the politics but the dangers of civil unrest. While an extra bit of vigilance wouldn’t be out of place, things will not devolve into wide spread chaos.
