Trump has to be stopped, for the sake of our democracy. But the Democratic Party has virtually no institutional power, having been decimated during the midterms of 2010 and 2014. What little power remains is with the filibuster in the Senate, which will be removed should it prove effective.
Trump has made some of the most disastrous nominations in history. Many of his nominees are extremists that are ideologically opposed to the purpose of the agency they have been nominated to represent. For example, Betsy DeVos is the Secretary of Education even though she has fought to privatize the public school system. Scott Pruitt is perhaps the worst.
