Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Original post)

22. There's always been a strong isolationalist streak in the US

and Trump succeeding in his plans to make himself president-for-life plays into that, IMHO. He and his supporters did not think through the ramifications: one-time allies would refuse to recognize the regime, and realize that they can do just as well for their people without the US throwing its weight around. We'd see restrictions on imports from the US, and travelers from the US. China and the EU would be the dominant players, trying to see who can sway African nations to their sides. Putin would be very happy seeing the US diminished.
