The phrase “detached from reality” vied with the word “unhinged” as the most memorable description of Donald Trump by his former aides and officials at recent congressional hearings.

Donald Trump’s scheming attempts to stay in power and false claims of a “stolen” or “rigged election” have been well-documented. The recent accounts by former administration officials have added depth and alarming detail to our impression of his post-election behaviour, particularly during the riots of January 6, 2021. Beyond the headline-grabbing accounts of the president refusing for hours to pacify rioters and throwing his food, a more sinister question emerges: will the 2024 presidential election put an even greater strain on US politics?
