Objectively, do you believe these actions and statements serve to foster trust in American democracy and its institutions?
Of course not. But the existence of one problem does not disprove the existence of another, greater problem.
[Add: you'll notice that in spite of his claims, pressure, disruption, etc, "democracy" held together. And you may have noticed that Trump got pushback from the institutions and agencies pretty much whenever he got ridiculous. Not as much pushback against Biden, though, no matter how manifestly unconstitutional/illegal his actions are or mindless his rhetoric. Nevertheless, democracy in the US is not in danger.]
