Trump has the opportunity to credit himself with healing the broken fabric that binds Americans. All he has to do is a concession speech and a call in it to unite our brothers and sisters. That would be his revenge and a chance to take back the lost dignity. Else, I am not sure what the history will ever give him credit for.
