Many critics have suggested that the anti-Trump protests aren’t exactly helping the left’s argument that the country has become less democratic since Trump’s election. One of those voices is a YouTuber by the name of Jon Jafari, host of the JonTronShow, with over 1.45 million followers on Twitter and almost 3 million YouTube subscribers.
