What do you think will actually happen, VT?

I mean, in a way the USA is in a position to ignore everyone else on the planet if it so choose, and the 'state' is so well-armed nobody, 2A notwithstanding, can get anywhere near throwing it over.

Meanwhile the individual states seem to be formulating their own ways of getting by (direct trade negotiations with Canada being an example I heard of recently).

Tough question that. The news today was falling Trump's way but I doubt it is enough to overcome his shortcomings.
My wild A$$ed guess today?
Within a year Trump will have a heart attack or stroke either real or feigned and he will resign for health reasons letting Pence take over and try to pick up the pieces.

Have you read Treasure Islands by Nicholas Shaxson, RC? If not, you should, it's fascinating even while your blood is boiling.

The Delaware story is...unsurprising. Laughing

The Apprentice President continues with his firing policy - this time it is Rex Tillerson who's got the boot.

Moon of Alabama: Trump votes for "Rexit"

Well in most places you can't call the boss a moron (even if he is) and last very long. I'm surprised it took this long.
The country and the world would be better off if it were reversed and Rex stayed and Trump quit.
