Well, it would have to be something illegal that the American people care about. The guy has been making money with his Apprentice series for the last 10 years. Where would the law breaking be?

Let's hope America is hopeless then.

This is why Slavoj Zizek is wrong. Trump cancelled the TPP, renegotiated NAFTA, slapped steel and aluminium tariffs on a number of countries, and is in the middle of a trade war with China. Even the Democrats are urging him to keep up pressure on Huawei. The reason Trump won is that he questioned the globalist order from the view of how it affect America's blue collar working class service and manufacturing workers. The Democrats have already lost them. The last few debates the Democrats are talking about taking away private health insurance and putting everyone under Medicare, giving free health care to illegal immigrants, decriminalizing crossing the US border, and providing free abortion services to men who decide to become women. They're straight up nuts.

Sanders got beat in these last two debates and AOC can't run for president for at least 6 years. Neither of them has a snowball's chance in hell of winning the White House.
