Scared enough that if he was being mugged I would try to get as far away from him as I could; otherwise, I'd get hurt!

Personally? No.
I don't think he would make the effort of crossing the Atlantic to grab me by the p****.

He enjoys thinking of himself as a king or a dictator, so yes, Trump scares the s**t out of me.

If I met him in person, I wouldn't be afraid, but I am afraid of what he wants to and will try to do, and the lengths he will go to to do it.

I have increasing memory issues, and a tendency to forget that I forget everything. Please don't take it personally if I forget something, it probably says absolutely nothing about how important the thing is/isn’t to me.

Trump is too ambitious and has tried way too many times to let certain remarks come off as jokes.

Pretty much this. I would say I'm concerned about Trump much more than I'm scared of him.

I fear the two criminal neoliberal gangs, masquerading as parties, far more.

I am less concerned about Trump than I was - say - two years ago.

His destructive potential has somewhat been curtailed by his own incompetence.

However, the damage Donald Trump has done to international cooperation cannot easily be undone, and I fear that he may have hastened the relative decline of Western civilization.

To be fair, one of the criminal gangs is both neoliberal and neoconservative, at least it was until they invited paleocons and white nationalists to take over.

May I also just say that this fad of basing political discourse strictly on fear strikes me as weak & un-American?

IDGAF what you're scared of, what I do know is that you make poor decisions when you're focusing on the fear.

Let's put this simply, if you don't follow gravity, it's probably due to fear of heights, which is not the same thing as knowing how you need to land.
