Congress could override Trump... if Congress worked together: pass legislation, if vetoed override the veto.
You know my opinion on that
, Trump is going to win anyway.
And, if someone like Bernie gets elected.. nothing will really get done. If the Reps hold the Senate, Bernie wouldn't get anything done... even if the Dems got the majority, many don't like Bernie's platform
so Bernie would have to compromise... in addition, Bernie doesn't have a large enough network of people to come in and fill the various Executive Branch position.... etc.... I could go on.... Bottom line, a Bernie presidency would likely assure a Republican wins office in 2024....especially if the economy tanks. In fact, if Bernie wins and the economy tanks, we could even see Trump back again in 2024.
Biden is the likely candidate. He could probably beat Trump. But Biden will at most be a one term president, which (especially if the economy tanks) points to a Republican in 2024.
Besides it will be 50 years before the damage Trump is doing is corrected... with luck only 25 years or so relative to the Supreme Court and other judges.
So... in my view.. the Democrat's only hope is not to beat Trump but rather to win majorities in the H.R. & Senate. It would be better for Trump to stay in office against a Democrat controlled congress, so when the economy does tank Trump gets the blame.
So you want
Trump to win. Interesting.
To override a Presidential veto, 67 votes would be needed in the Senate and a two thirds majority in the House. There is no way in hell we will get at least 15 or so Republicans to jump ship and side with the Democrats on any major piece of legislation, let alone go against a Republican President on a veto. Especially on things like climate change or health care.
Nor will the Senate have a DNC majority if Trump is re-elected, period. If Trump is re-elected, that would mean enough GOP voters showed up at the polls to do so and not enough Democratic voters showed up, which, in turn, would mean that the Senate definitely won’t be able to flip enough seats to gain a majority - the party line vote was at near 90% in recent elections. And it’s already a long uphill battle for Democrats to flip the Senate in 2020 as it is. While, yes, there are plenty more GOP seats up for election than DNC seats, only 3 are from non-red states (Maine, Colorado, and maybe Arizona). 4 are needed to flip the Senate if Trump wins.
So, sorry, my friend, no matter how you slice it, nothing will get done for another 4 years if Trump is re-elected, unless somehow miraculously the GOP also regains the House.
No, the best bet is for the DNC to win the Presidency and the Senate (then only 3 Senate seats would need to flip), and legislate with zeal for 2 years before your predicted crash fallout election occurs in 2022 (the mistake Obama made in not doing from 2008-2010). We have a slightly less margin of hope still alive even if the DNC only wins the Presidency and fails to flip the Senate, because at least the DNC President can scapegoat Mitch McConnell for not getting anything done and for your economic crash and take advantage of an easier 2022 Senate election in terms of flipping GOP seats than 2020. But that would require a more focused message campaign than what the DNC has shown to be able to do in the present.
Otherwise, it’s over. Trump in charge from 2021-2025 will irreparably ruin the country, ruin the middle class, and ruin our planet.
