Jan. 20, 2021: President Biden takes the oath of office, after a landslide victory in November. Trump blustered, but never put up a meaningful resistance to the transfer of power. Democrats, progressives and #NeverTrump conservatives rejoice.

Meanwhile, Trump’s powerful supporters look back on the previous four years and take stock. They made a lot of money, got a lot of conservative judges appointed, and made a lot of legal and regulatory changes. All in all, they say, it was a smashing success. “Let’s do it again,” they say.
