Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Trade is pretty much all that's left, but since he's slapping tariffs hither and thither on countries he couldn't even point to on a map, I'd say they are just to allow people in America to get on with some work for a week or two instead of having to babysit him.
Since when were politics ever about something else than trade? Trump's idea of politics is making the US pick up economic growth. When you have that, you can start spending on what have you: culture, etc. You cannot protect anything without means. Some countries live with austerity measures built in in their cultures/history, CH is a prime example. And even here culture and diplomacy started being a priority only when there were actual funds to back them up. Funds first, then spending them wisely.
