He may have seemed appealing for being an outsider, but once in office, he showed that he's more corrupt than any establishment politician there ever was.  Yet he continued to appeal to his base so obviously it wasn't his outsider credentials they liked.  They actually liked that he is crass, bigoted and dumb.  Here is a rich white guy who in sits in the oval office, yet he is just like THEM.  He represents them. 

Trump was idolized and worshipped by his base, but I don't think anyone other than maybe his sons can fill that void for his base.  My eyes are on Tom Cotton.  I think he will be the next Republican star.

There's no way forward for America other than finally throwing out the redbaitiing. If they don't then the fight just remains the same.

Other than the possibility that too many of them will begin to look to outside of their country for the enemy of the people.

Rather than them dropping the redbaiting, the latter is probably more likely and that becomes very scary if they choose China or Russia as the reason why their 'American way' doesn't work.
