    Default I hope Trump wins another term

    For entertainment value. He's turned out to be harmless, all hot air.
    Like all bullies, he's a bit of a weak man though, lets the world's tyrants walk all over him and play him like a banjo.
    Witness how he caves in to Russia, N. Korea, Turkey etc.
    Hard Brexit now!

    He enjoys offending liberals, that's for sure. But in terms of boosting US jobs/economy, and managing not to start/get involved with any significant wars/conflicts over the past 3 years, one could argue that he's not doing badly.

    He's certainly "boosted" US debt :

    Debt seems to be increasing everywhere. I suppose one day people will wise up to what is going on. But it won't be in my lifetime.

    I've been wondering this also... same in the UK, the annual deficits may be shrinking, but overall national debt is still soaring... where's the money going?

    I hope sasguru does not win another term as CUK cretin of the year. 14 years a winner so far. Can't he get perma-banned and give another poster the chance?
