Democrats calling for unity but vow for vengeance

If I were a store owner in D.C., New York or any other large city, I’d keep the plywood easily accessible.

But, more than 70 million Americans who voted for President Trump  might be forgiven for asking, “Really?” In 2016, Democrats not only  refused to accept Hillary Clinton’s loss but have engaged in a four-year  coup attempt to remove Mr. Trump and smear his supporters as racists.

“The bitter 2016 battle for the White House is turning into a forever  war with Hillary Clinton’s tormented team vowing a four-year insurgency  against Donald Trump,” reported Politico on Dec. 3, 2016. “People in  her orbit … are plotting an anti-Trump resistance and venting with a  fury.” [ … ]
