Abstract


Global political community is carefully watching the development of political events against the background of escalation of domestic political crisis in the USA, it was most acutely in a view of J. Biden's presidency. American society's dissatisfaction with concrete results of realization of domestic political projects, strengthening of social and political differentiation, ignoring of some proposals by American side at the global political level are far from an exhaustive list of systemic problems of American politics. We are talking about the crisis of American political system generally and the work of the US political elite particularly. It is very impenetrable to limit the origin and the dynamics of development of crisis manifestations to specifics of D. Trump's presidency. It is obvious that real reasons are much more complex and contradictory than it may appear at first glance. On the surface it is unlikely to find answers, because objectively the backstory dates back to a much earlier period than D. Trump's victory the US presidential election in 2016. As a result Americans deal with the fact that the US political elite is not able to pursue a progressive political course and take responsibility for certain actions in political plane. Existing political reality is more and more like a platform for political games and image-building events. The outline of this discussion consists of questions related to the review of some origins and scenarios of development of domestic political crisis in the USA. The question of determining the conflictogenicity of the 46th US President's political position can be of specific interest.
