Two Early Examples of the Trump Resistance Even Before He Was Nominated

November 19, 2019 --

1)  From Danielle Allen, The Washington Post, February 21, 2016, "The moment of truth: We must stop Trump"

"Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I have spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany. Watching Donald Trump's rise, I now understand. Leave aside whether a direct comparison of Trump to Hitler is accurate. That is not my point. My point rather is about how a demogogic opportunist can exploit a divided country."

2) From James Kirchick, Los Angeles Times, July 19, 2016, "If Trump wins, a coup isn't impossible here in the U.S."

"Trump is not only patently unfit to be president, but a danger to America and the world. Voters must stop him before the military has to."
