But there is one crucial factor that should be concerning Democrats even more: at this point in Donald Trump’s presidency, it was just a month after the “Unite the Right” rally in Virginia.

Three people died in the rally which saw far-right groups including white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and various right-wing militias take to the streets of Charlottesville.

In the aftermath of the rally, Mr Trump incited anger across the political spectrum when he failed to condemn the participants, saying there had been “very fine people on both sides”.

Right after this, controversial Trump adviser Stephen K Bannon had been fired, and emails from former campaign chairman Paul Manafort detailing how Mr Bannon had sought to set up meetings with a Russian billionaire close to Vladimir Putin were reported.
