      Hello Nan. Yes, and I was not surprised to see one of his top measures was financial inequality. Inequality of any measure is going to erupt in violence if not addresses and remedied.

      As for this election, I do expect violence on and after election day. The maga wont accept the results of a Biden win. These are the same people who believe Qanon that Democrats are a pedophilic cabal of baby eaters. They believed Hillary ran a child sex ring in a basement that did not exist. So they will believed the election was stolen and rigged. The day after the election in any state tRump is ahead they will demand the counting be stopped so tRump keeps his lead. The maga are willing to use violence to make the counts stop. That has to be scary for the workers doing the counting and poll work. Hugs
