Political power comes from the barrell of a gun – Mao
When talking up regime change in Venezuela Trump and his deputy, Pence, are happy to invoke the Munroe Doctrine. This 100 year old U.S. policy says that European states shall not interfere in the affairs of Latin American states, only the United States can do that.
Trump has just announced that he is withdrawing aid from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. The main push factor for the caravans of migrants from these countries through Mexico is poverty. By withdrawing aid and increasing poverty he will make more refugees go to the US not less.
I’m wondering if Trump loses the next election if he will actually accept the result?
I have been watching SBS film Waco about a siege in Texas by the FBI (It is still available on demand). I can see why people in the US no longer trust the government.
Trump has played on that successfully … why would you give up power … George W Bush didn’t really win his second election, having lost in Florida, but the Democrats didn’t press it.
The next few years do not look very bright to me.
Some of Trump’s hard-core supporters believe everything he says.
But his health may not hold out much longer after another campaign.
Maybe New York State will tell him they won’t prosecute if he goes quietly. Remember the deal that was struck with Spiro T Agnew.
