6. This really isn't unique to Trump. Any time an autocrat is pushed out of

power, or suffers a humiliation, and someone who respects Democracy assumes power, anything that person does will be seen as an offensive erasure of what the strongman accomplished.

This is really a global issue where anti-democracy parties and powers are gaining in numbers. Look at the shit Angela Merkel has had to put up with in Germany since 2015. It's even a problem in Australia.

The usual suspects, like the Alt Right, Christian Nationalists, racists, will be unhappy.

President Obama actually gave the Christian Right some of the things they demanded and they still despised him (Source: Unholy by Sarah Posner). Biden should not do anything to try to appease these assholes.
