Thread Name: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
I wanted to respond to McGrath thinking I'd confused Botswana with Zimbabwe. Going back to that list of Democracies, no I hadn't. The U.S. still listed much much higher than Zimbabwe, but the Economist, which I think makes up the list of democracies, had placed the U.S. in a population listed as 'troubled'. But the standards of that list are still relatively high and we are still ahead of Botswana.

Good Times.

Wouldn't surprise me if we do a bit of climbing on that list after the most recent U.S. election.

SRS has started a fresh thread specifically for legal and legislative repercussions to the former Occupant. I think this thread still has validity to societal and political implications that involve The Donald and his acolytes, because they are not going away.

Back to troubled democracies:

I had omitted from my list the most Trump-like of the other South American leaders: Bolsanaro of Brazil.
