1. Wonderful. Thanks for the positive news, Sunny05.

It should hopefully hold until Trump and/or whoever succeeds him helps us get control of Congress in 2018.

5. You assume that tRump will honor the 5 years...

I would guess that he will decide that it is a "bad deal" and will ignore the 5 years
