He could chuck it all away. He doesn't seem to be very good at the art of damage limitation. I just don't want him to attempt to drag others down with him. Still, I hope he keeps getting bombarded with stuff he doesn't have the capacity to handle. A plague on his (political) house so to speak. I hope it carries on for next few days as it has been. It seems like he doesn't know where to go or who to turn to. Could be the real motivation behind keeping the far right on side rather than any deep conviction (not that it lessens the culpability). The far right Nazi affiliates probably thought this was their chance, their moment, but will now be deserted by the flailing, wandering objectives of an increasingly isolated president.

He really needs to decide if he is prepared to listen. If not he should get gone as soon as possible. Or others should see to that process. It is quite simple really, go for the apology and making amends route or say goodbye. Has to be done. There has to be some limit, and he went way past it. Its up to him but I'd give him less than a week to do it at this point.

Its incumbent on the wider state apparatus or system to see to the protection of their constituents. Trump is just a walking wounded, short term problem. Needs to be put out to pasture. Someone with some sort of grounded mentality and reliability to take the reins for an interim period at the least.
