Subject: RE: BS: Trump Korean War II
Well, I gotta say that Trump is a busy little guy. One would think that Sunday would be a slow news day, but Trump was on Face the Nation today.
Trump says he wants to leave healthcare to the states, so he can focus the nation on "bigger things":It appears that Trump is starting to feel his total failure on internal matters, and so now he's taking on "bigger things" - like maybe a little war to up his ratings, perhaps?

Since he's failed in internal matters, it looks like he's moving toward the extremist view that wants to leave all internal matters to the states and focus the federal government on waging war. Maybe he can't abolish national parks and Obamacare, but he has all sorts of tools to cripple these functions by withholding funding. And then he can go after Medicare and Social Security, so he has more money to spend on war. And war creates jobs, so a nice little war can make Trump feel like he's the success he needs to be.

It's scary.
