Evan McMullin: Americans Must Resist If Donald Trump Governs as an Authoritarian

Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin has been coming out swinging against Donald Trump and his threats to govern as an authoritarian.

McMullin was asked, “What can the average American do, right now, in a real way, to resist the authoritarian moves that are about to commence?”

He responded that if Trump governs as an “authoritarian like he has promised” Americans must resist and fight back and listed 10 things Americans can do to fight back.

Here is McMullin’s list sewn together:

He urged Americans to read and learn the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Know that our basic rights are inalienable. Identify and follow many credible sources of news. Be very well informed and learn to discern truth from untruth. Watch every word, decision and action of Trump and his administration extremely closely, like we have never done before in America.

Be very vocal in every forum available to us when we observe Trump’s violations of our rights and our democracy. Write, speak, act. Support journalists, artists, academics, clergy and others who speak truth and who inform, inspire and unite us. Build bridges with Americans from the other side of the traditional political spectrum and with members of diverse American communities.

Defend others who may be threatened by Trump even if they don’t look, think or believe like us. An attack on one is an attack on all. Organize online and in person with other Americans who understand the danger Trump poses and who are also willing to speak up.Hold members of Congress accountable for protecting our rights and democracy through elections and by making public demands of them now. And finally, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, have “malice toward none, with charity for all” and never ever lose hope!

The only problem with this is that Trump may single out certain groups to display authoritarianism towards, which means the people not affected probably won’t care.

He tweeted 10 things for Americans to do to resist Trump:
