Trump/Trumpism is just like slavery - both are all-pervasive & horrifically insidious!
Trump is ubiquitous - like the air we breathe. Unceasing, unrelenting & all-encroaching, like slavery was in the United States in the 1850's.
Lincoln gave his iconic "House Divided" speech on June 16, 1858 in Springfield, Illinois before an audience of 1,000 Republican delegates from around the state.
It demonstrates that half-measures on slavery, and by logical extension, half-measures on Trump & Trumpism - offered no chance of prevailing - but instead only invited disaster.
This country cannot remain half TRUMP AND half EVERYONE ELSE!

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Convention.
We are now far into the fifth year, since a policy was initiated, with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery agitation.
Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented.
In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed.
"A house divided against itself cannot stand."

I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided.
It will become all one thing or all the other.
Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate
