I’m not at all surprised trump would do this, but the wildcard at this point is not trump or even republicans (who will protect their scum in chief at any cost), its voters.

If a majority of people are willing to allow trump to get away with this then he will continue expanding his authoritarianism, if they react en masse by ditching anyone who supports trump then republicans will have to take action or be swept from office along with trump.

It won’t be surprising to see more actions to restrict voting, more grandiose lies, distraction techniques, invented crisis or changes to the law to keep trump and republicans from being toppled because they know they are in a death match to stay in office and will not stop at money, lives or anything else in order to keep their power.
