As I mentioned in the introduction to this series of articles, I predicted that Donald Trump would be an existential threat to our democracy--and I made that prediction roughly two weeks before the 2016 election.

The previous articles in this series have set the stage for my new prediction: If Trump is elected in 2024, we will see at least one—and very possibly more—Tiananmen Square-style massacres on U.S. soil.

Mr. Trump intends to bring independent agencies — like the Federal Communications Commission, which makes and enforces rules for television and internet companies, and the Federal Trade Commission, which enforces various antitrust and other consumer protection rules against businesses — under direct presidential control.
