Can the United States Survive the Childish Tantrums of an Incompetent President?

Monday 24 December 2018

Here we are with the last posting of the year looking at the potential for wide ranging strategy for a country like the United States. Arguably the United States is undergoing its own version of #Brexit though without the vote of the people.
