Trump and the mainstreaming of racism in American politics [long read]

The mob that ransacked the Capitol at President Donald Trump’s behest on January 6th brought together various sorts of extremists deeply committed to sustaining Trump’s presidency by any means possible, including violence if necessary.

This fact was clear from the many white natio...
