Do Republican presidents purposely destroy the country on their way out so the incoming Democratic president has to handle the disasters?

Not generally. I think this is the first time anything like this has happened.

No because they want one of their own party to succeed them. They never want Democrats in power.

They don't, only Dump is doing it. He is making us look like a banana republic.

Reagan and Bush did not do that. Trump, though, is doing that.
Reagan and Bush Jr. simply made some bad choices based on their firm belief that capitalism should be free from government moderation. So the both of them relaxed government regulations on business and finance and economic disaster followed...like the 2008 great recession. Republicans continue to support the Laffer economic model, which many call the Trickle Down model. But there is absolutely no evidence that it's a valid model.
Trump on the other hand just does what feels right to him. He knows better than anyone, including all those economists, how to run the country. Or so he thinks. And because he does not listen to his advisors our nation has lost its leadership in the free world and has made our strongest allies suspect about our nation's motives.
And Trump continue to embarrass our nation by failing to support Biden in his transition into the White House. He's the only...only...lame duck POTUS to not concede and help the elected new POTUS transition into power.

The disaster will be if an old pedo is allowed to cheat his way into office.

No. Republican Presidents fix everything they can before they leave office so DemocRATS can tell their usual lies and say they did it.

Both parties have been known to pull minor pranks on the incoming guy (Like for example George W. Bush found the W key missing on every keyboard in WH, mail back a few weeks later) - THAT is sort of a tradition -
BUT NOTHING totally destructive to the country as Trump is pulling!

Not Usually! Just Narcissistic Demagogue Trump, who ONLY cares about himself and his loss, and will do ANYTHING to win.

This one is.
The GOP today is about raw power for rich, bored men, and absolutely nothing else. Its ideology is completely nihilistic.

Let us all guess, here. You think Trump is keeping Biden from getting crucial daily briefings. If you do, you must know that ALL party nominees get those daily briefings from the time they're nominated.
