Princeton University Professor: ‘If Trump Wins in November, I Think Democracy Is a Wrap’ – EVOL

Princeton professor Eddie Glaude Jr. warned during Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Deadline” that a victory for former President Donald Trump in the upcoming November election will “end democracy.”

“Democracies require certain kinds of people to work, and we’ve just got to be better, be better people,” he said.

“We have to understand who we are and what I’m looking for is a politics of tending. When we tend to each other’s ordinary everyday lives on the ground, close to the ground. I’m looking for a coalition of the decent, of the loving and caring. Folk who want to finally rip us away. Finally, untether us from this nonsense that has produced this,” he continued.

Host Nicolle Wallace said: “I feel like the other part of it is there’s no more sort of private self like everything you do is this desperate I think need to connect to other people who want to be part of what you just called the coalition of the decent because we’re racing against time. It feels like this election will be decisive if we can come back from this.”

Glaude said: “If Trump wins, I really think democracy is a wrap in the country.”
