18. The imperial presidency

It was the concept, pushed by the Nixon administration, which we now see playing out again in this administration. It was also pushed by the Bush II administration. We/the GOP may nominate someone with better political skills, in the future, but the underlying problems that we saw with Nixon, lived on in many ways in the subsequent administrations, and the party itself. Getting rid of Trump won't change that.
