Civil Wars are again two governments, the Legitimate one, and the pretender who wants to overthrow them. The Trumpkins and Alt-Right don't have that.

On top of that, political divides are very different than in the 1800's. No State is truly a Blue State or a Red State and so it makes it harder to divide along State Lines, even if the State Legislatures wanted to do so, which they don't.

Finally. Most Trumpers would just run away when the bullets started coming back at them. The few that don't will either end up dead or arrested after wandering through an open door and finding themselves suddenly in a federal building.
