Let's have a little fun and "create" American history from 2020 onward through the 21st century and beyond. I'll start, the next person continues, and so forth:

July 2020: Elizabeth Warren captures the Democratic nomination for president of the United States. She names as her running mate former Congressman Beto O'Rourke of Texas.

August 2020: After a contentious primary season in which former Gov. John Kasich of Ohio and former Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona challenged President Trump for the primary, Trump is renominated. Mike Pence is renominated for Vice President. The economy seems sound, but forecasters warn of an imminent crash brought on yet again by lax enforcement, and in many cases, repeal of banking regulations and overspeculation in the stock market.

September 2020: At the beginning of September, national polls show the incumbent Trump at 43% support, Senator Warren at 41% and the remaining 16% undecided. After the first debate, which focuses on immigration, the margins change to 46% Trump-44% Warren and 10% undecided. The second debate at the end of the month focuses on the economy and banks, after which the polls show a tie of 45% each for Warren and Trump, with 10% undecided.

October 2020:
October 1: DOW PLUNGES 11,000 POINTS OVERNIGHT, LOSES 1/3 OF VALUE, MIDDLE CLASS HAMPERED, BANKS RUNNING OUT OF $$$, MASS LAYOFFS EXPECTED
The news sends America into chaos. Riots arise in every city and even many small towns. A bank run occurs as nearly every American tries to withdraw their money. An angry mob storms the NYSE, including several with guns. A dozen investors are killed. President Trump considers martial law, only to be dissuaded by Chief of Staff John Kelly. On Twitter, the president states: "The very bad regulations and polices of Barack Obama have finally shown themselves and destroyed the US economy!! Lots of people going to lose their jobs!! Obama's policies were very evil and even made your favortie president's policies hard to do! Now some very bad liberals have killed 12 NYSE employees, there will be law and order!!!" Sen. Warren releases a statement: "Wall Street has yet again allowed the American economy to fall to its knees. If elected, my administration will do everything possible to hold these vultures accountable and bring the US back to being the land of opportunity."

Out of concern for the safety of both candidates, the third debate is cancelled.

November 2020:

Election Day: WARREN ELECTED, WILL BECOME 46TH PRESIDENT, CARRIES ELECTORAL COLLEGE 383-155
In a late-night tweetm Trump says: "Good luck America!!" The stock market sees another, more minor drop of 1,000 points as investors fear the regulations of the incoming Warren administration.
