I agree that we need more laws or whatever it takes to prevent this from happening again.
Here is why it is needed:
Donald Trump is, and always will be, an inept person that (over time) destroys everything and everyone that he comes in contact. Next time we are going to be far less lucky, and next time it will be someone far far smarter, far far more evil. Think in terms of what Putin would have done over 4 years if he was born in the US and elected president instead of Trump. Putin wouldn't have made any of the same dumb ass stupid mistakes as Trump and the Putin would have been far more secretive about the things he did do that ensured he stayed in power indefinitely. Putin would have selected Bill Barr as the AG as his first and only AG in 2016, and those appointed to the SC would have 100% loyal to Putin's agenda (think of Lindsey Graham on the SC). Putin would have appointed others similar to Bill Barr to other high level positions, people who are just as ruthless as he is, and never blink about doing whatever it takes to get the job done. If Putin had been elected in 2016, he would made sure he was re-elected in 2020 and beyond. Putin wouldn't have lost the 2020 election; Joe Biden never would have made it to election day, Putin would have made sure Biden and Harris both got COVID, and made sure they both died from it; if not COVID, Biden and Harris would have gone down in a plane crash, etc, etc. "Whatever it takes" means exactly that; get the job done using whatever tools and methods needed.
Trump elected President was just a warning sign because he has never been smart enough, and never will be, to take full authoritarian control, but next time it likely will be someone who has the skills and smarts to do it. It won't be someone who is obsessed with Fox news. Not obsessed with spending 2 hours every morning in the makeup chair to ensure his hair is perfect.
