There can't be many countries left which President Thug hasn't insulted or threatened.

Reminds me of Hitler's tactics over Czechoslovakia and Poland.

Then Ryan (Pence being on the same ticket would be out as well and Biden's term ended with Obama's) would be Acting President for however long it took for the EC to decide on who to elect. This has happened before (Twice!) actually though they managed to get their act together before the outgoing president's term ended so nothing crazy happened.

The socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried. To make matters worse, Maduro has defied his own people, stealing power from their elected representatives to preserve his disastrous rule.
The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing. Their democratic institutions are being destroyed. This situation is completely unacceptable and we cannot stand by and watch.

...The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.

Trump did mange to stick to script, so that's something. I suppose when the bar is on the ground it is pretty easy to step over.

I know a married couple that live in Sweden. He is Swedish and she is Vietnamese. One is an architect and the other is a construction manager.

Taxes are excessive in order to pay for all that "free stuff". They cannot afford a car. His parents have a car so once a month they borrow it and then get in all the shopping that they can do.

For the first six months they lived with his parents because you can't just buy a house or property you have to get in line and the government will find you appropriate living arrangements. The wait time for this...months , even years.

having the government in your underwear with every step is socialism, but it is not freedom.
Thanks from Aufgeblassen

Scandinavian societies are often brought up as examples of social equality and welfare but this is but one aspect of human realities and leaves these countries vulnerable to the brutality of the less liberal world. Islam as an example is more than happy to take advantage of na´ve unpreparedness and is already slipping into the cultural fabric and will easily corrupt it.

It's quite amusing that President Slime said that he expected other countries to put themselves first, and then threatened genocidal war because North Korea was putting its safety first !
