In delivering [his] lies, Trump chooses language that’s particularly likely to incite rebellion and destabilize the government. ... On April 12, he wrote that the U.S. government was in the grip of “an unconstitutionally elected group of Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our Country.”

Trump has recommended specific steps to sabotage American democracy. ...he suggested that Republican senators should block Democratic legislation by refusing to “show up.”....

...

Trump...endorses the narrative, promoted by Russia and other U.S. adversaries, that the whole American system of liberty and democracy is a sham....

...

When Trump says “we,” he isn’t talking about America as a guardian of freedom or democracy. He’s talking about America as a well-armed financial empire and vehicle for his ego. ... It’s why he envies Mexico, where the armed forces “don’t have the restrictions that we have” on civilian deployment. It’s why he works every day to undermine the democracy that rejected him.
