My impression is that in the USA things bounce back and forth. Action and Reaction. Things were going in the direction of Socialism for at least a hundred years and even well meaning people thought that would work. Only slowly did it become clear that Socialism is bad for the USA, so Trump was elected basically to get things back to the kind of republic that was conceived of by the Founding Fathers of the USA. The view from Sweden might be different also because Socialism as as it was until now in the USA was nothing like it is in Sweden. It mainly did horrible damage to families and and communities and it got a lot of people seething with rage.
