President Trump has done nothing to protect democracy in America. His administration is actively working to undermine democracy in America.
This is exactly what democracy looks like: the government of the people, by the people, of the United States for the people.
The president-elect, having taken office, can do nothing to restore democracy to the United States. He can do nothing to restore our system of government.
By not taking specific action in accordance with a constitutionally mandated responsibility, he has put the government of the United States in the hands of his enablers.
