'Trump doesn’t care about facts, of course. Aping the tactics of demagogues everywhere, he’s trying to create a diversion and seeking to identify his own personal interests with those of the country at large. It’s a strategy of deliberate incitement, in which he has already accused one of his accusers, the Democrat Adam Schiff, of treason and quoted an evangelical pastor who said that removing him from office would lead to a civil war. Where it will all end nobody can say, but we do know that Trump will do or say virtually anything to save his hide, and he’ll insist to the last that he did nothing wrong.'

Here's the thing: "With all this as clear as could be, Trump has settled on a different defense strategy, and his statements on the White House lawn illustrated it. Rather than denying the central charge against himabuse of Presidential powerhe's now embracing it, giving it his public imprimatur. His thinking appears to be that America is now so polarized that his supporters will say it's perfectly fine for him to ask foreign countries to investigate his political opponents, and elected G.O.P. officeholders will quietly acquiesce to it. And the most dreadful thing is he may not be wrong. As Thursday wore on, there was a deafening silence from Republicans on Capitol Hill."

and here's the other thing... he is certifiably unhinged, dangerous in his incompetence and an embarrassment to our nation as he represents us around the globe... world leaders have his number, and they see the GOP and th e power elite that controls it, for what it is doing to our democracy order to stay in power.
