What is the solution to Trump and the Republican and Democratic party?

You have to find a single issue that galvanizes both parties and independents too in the right moment. Otherwise, neither party is really worth anything at all right now. I suppose even an independent party separate from the Democrats and Republicans might break through under the right conditions too, especially when both parties seem relatively dysfunctional (each in their own special ways) right now.

But, that's really it. For example, FDR had to lie to the American people about Pearl Harbor to get them to fight Japan and Germany because the whole U.S. was pacifist then and led by Lindberg who was the first to fly across the Atlantic in I think 1927. But, by lying to the American people FDR got them to fight in World War II and about 1 million Americans died in this war (mostly civilians).

However, if FDR hadn't done this it is quite likely that Hitler would have eventually invaded the U.S. and nuked Washington DC and New York and the U.S. likely would be a NAZI nation right now. And possibly on one or more other time lines this is what actually happened.

However, Trump is so dysfunctional he would never be useful to the world like FDR was at that time.
