Is Trumpism an existential threat?

Is Trumpism an existential threat?I’ve been thinking about Barack Obama lately, and not because I suspect he ordered a tap on my phones, or directed his agents to eavesdrop through my flat-screen, although I like the idea of someone poring through hundreds of pages of transcripts of me ranting about how I can’t seem to switch channels without turning on the Xbox. Obama had been saying he didn’t consider terrorism an existential threat to the country, the way we once viewed the specter of nuclear war. This was well before anyone considered Donald Trump a plausible president of the United States, so Obama wasn’t talking about anyone in particular.
