and all his pawns as agency heads. Putin must be ecstatic that America is being split in half and may soon be violent. I so hope I am wrong.

The US is looking at splitting into at least 3 Federations, maybe 4. East Coast, West Coast and Middle something.

But don't be surprised if Texas sets up it own independent Republic and a few other states set up their own Southern federation.

Just what Putin wanted and was given free pass by the mInority who 'won' the election

You have only a few choices:

1) Lose in a landslide
2) Become a dictator
3) Become a criminal.

Our beloved Oversized Idiot Snowflake-in-Chief meets/will meet all three choices.
