I had one of our faithful readers ask: What's the worst that can realistically happen under a Trump administration with a fully Republican Congress?
- He could nuke parts of the Middle East, killing millions quickly and tens of millions more slowly.
- He could repeal the PPACA without putting in a good replacement, kicking tens of millions of Americans off of health insurance and dooming some fraction of them to die.
- He could pull out of the Paris accords and pivot us to drill baby drill! levels of carbon burning.
- He could end the EPA and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
- He could hollow out NATO, which would destabilize Europe and the Eurozone while giving a wink and a nod to an aggressive and militaristic Vladimir Putin.
- He could default on US debt, ending our status as the world’s reserve currency and raising borrowing costs for businesses.
- He could start a trade war with China that would leave American wallets gasping for air.
