Maybe it's time the Dems learned the lesson, huh? And they won't be able to hide behind the novelty and popularity of the 1st black President the next time.
And I disagree about your characterization of Trump's actions as some how expanding executive power. From what I have seen, the only things Trump has done by executive order is to roll back a lot of the crappy executive orders Obama issued. In fact, I can't think of one single thing Trump has done so far to expand executive power.
