The Economist

Our cover story this week focuses on the repulsive sight of an incumbent president calling on a mob to march to Congress – and then praising them after rioting broke out. There is no doubt that Donald Trump is the originator of this attack on the heart of American democracy. His lies fueled resentments, his disregard for the constitution focused him on Congress, and his demagogy lit the fuse. The violence pretended to be a show of force. In reality, it masked two defeats. While Trump’s supporters broke into the Capitol, Congress confirmed the results of the president’s irrevocable defeat in November. And while the mob was smashing windows, the Democrats celebrated two unlikely victories in Georgia that will put them in control of the Senate. The anger of the mob will echo in the Republican Party as it is in the opposition. That could have profound implications for Joe Biden’s upcoming presidency.
