Who is checking behind Keith?  Who is checking behind any of the Caribbean leaders?  Donald is ah first class ASSHOLE, but atleast, America got checks nd balances.

Checks and balances? What checks and balances, those super-partisan toothless tigers like impeachment hearings? Our system has way more checks and balances on the power of the PM than exist under the US Constitution. Just loom at Brexit and the UK, if that was the USA the POTUS would've gotten it done long ago, but thank god for this thing called parliament.

Trump said he would build a wall.  Not one inch of new wall was built.  He said he would repeal Obamacare day one.  It is still the law of the land.  He said he would cancel funding to sanctuary cities.  Couldn't get it done.  He said he would end birthright citizenship.  Not a chance in hell.  He said he would end DACA.  Still the law of the land.   I could go on.  He wanted to do all of these things but the presidency doesn't give him the power to do it.  He isn't a dictator and there are checks and balances.  Thank God.

Because America IS the Trumpster. It's amazing the powers that are given to the US president, nuts! I call it an elected temporary dictatorship.


America is NOT the Trumpster…….He lost the popular vote by ~ 3M, and his favorability rating is constantly UNDER 50%. That's empirical evidence. Now, other than assumption, please tell me what criteria and evidence you use to declare that America is the Trumpster?

Nope! POTUS could not get Brexit done without approval of the Congress. The Constitution requires Congressional approval for ALL treaties. POTUS could negotiate, but it must be formalized by congressional approval. If he had that power, NAFTA would have already been officially replaced by the new MCA. Nothing is being done with that new agreement until the Speaker of the House brings it up in the House..... Nancy is currently playing hard ball with POTUS, and the new agreement is presently dead in its tracks.

But still for all and not because: POTUS still has a ridiculous amount of unnecessary power. We used to say in law class that the only the government can declare war, but the POTUS can wage it! Vietnam was never a declared war, btw. And what's with the raft of appointments made by Himself, why does the president need to appoint scientific and technical posts, madness. The Prime Minister can't unilaterally withdraw the country from treaties, either.
