A women’s studies professor predicts President Trump’s supporters, which she calls “overt racists,” will “provoke violence” when the Trumpet leave the Oval Office – even if it’s after two terms.
Julie Novkov, chair of the department of political science at the state university of New York at Albany, concludes in a recent article for the New Political Science that Trump supporters have political power is “dangerous.”
She defines the core Trump supporters as overt racists that immigrants, blacks, Muslims, and Jews “the enemies of the American state” and are “particularly prone to embrace the propaganda.”
I believe that Trumpers – the core supporters Trump has bound to himself by his constant and persistent messages will not accept it as a legitimate means through which he departs from the presidency.

The public university professor argues there are no good options for the country with Trump’s supporters to power.
“In the best case, might shift some areas of the country back to the political configuration is common in some areas of the south of america in the 1920s,” she wrote, “as the flashy populist racism vied with conservative and racist credentials projects for hegemony within the Democratic y.”
The alternative, Novkov argues, is that Trumpers “could provoke violence and place the nation in the position of having to engage in a period of violent oppression.”
Or the impeachment, resignation, failure to win the re-election or the death, Novkov believe Trump supporters will riot if he leaves office.
“I believe that Trumpers – the core supporters Trump has bound to himself by his constant and persistent messages will not accept it as a legitimate means through which he departs from the presidency,” Novkov wrote. “The Trumpers can be reconstituted in a democratic republic as the involved political actors who accept the fundamental premises of democratic governance?”

They argued that even if Trump is a second term as president, “they will loudly demand that he be allowed a third term,” adding that if their response is violent, “violence will be needed in the reaction to maintain the order.”
This autumn, the anti-Trump professor is set to learn of American Federalism and public law, graduate programme at New York university, according to CampusReform.org.
