Trump’s troops: "As they stand today, the Republicans are no longer a democratic party"

Annika Brockschmidt sees bleak for the USA if Donald Trump becomes president again. And yet a populist success would only be the consequence of decades of radicalization in the Grand Old Party, as the author shows in her new book. Reason for hope? There isn’t one in there.

Ms. Brockschmidt, the elections in the USA will not take place until November. Nevertheless, many observers are already convinced that Donald Trump will emerge victorious. Do you believe that too?
You should be careful there. But in all likelihood he will become the Republican Party’s presidential candidate.

There is no doubt about that?
No, unless something medical comes up.
