America, who is in charge? Is Democracy still a thing?

Let me start by clarifying my position on Trump;
As a non US citizen I think he is a terrible human being with few morals that puts money and power ahead of people in his private life. However, that being said as a Presidential candidate he had some very interesting ideas that certainly resonate with me personally. I could say the same thing about most politicians though - the political arena seems to attract unsavoury personalities like moths to a lamp.
The election happened, Trump won. He got sworn in and went on a little executive order flurry, making some now infamous first contact with world leaders. And then almost silence.
From afar we are seeing a war and a coup attempt rise up against him. Scandal after scandal is coming out in the press, but these things are not really any thing worse than his predecessors have done. The latest one being that Trump supposedly was cosying up with Russia before he was elected. I'd call that pre-emptive networking personally.
Why, here is Obama openly assuming he will win his second term and consulting with Russian intelligence in front of the media on hot mic in 2012.
