Pence is not Trump, you're way better with him. Trump doesn't play by the rules. Pence will be an idiot, but a rule-bound idiot.

I'm not convinced that it would be better. Trump is such an obvious idiot and acts so impulsively that the courts and even congress are likely to limit the damage. Pence would be able to work with the congress and potentially find ways to do harm that stayed within bounds that the courts would uphold.

The only way out I can see is for Trump to last until late 2018 and have at least one chamber flip from republican to democrat so that Pence is as hamstrung as possible for 2 years.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
Remember how Trump was saying that the deal with Iran that Obama made was the "worst deal ever"?

Quote:Trump called the nuclear pact a "disaster" and "the worst deal ever negotiated" during his campaign and said it could lead to a "nuclear holocaust."

In a speech to the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC in March, Trump declared that his “Number-One priority” would be to “dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran.”

Well, true to form, you can't depend upon what he says. He's now extended the Obama deal with Iran that relieved some sanctions while Iran stops its nuclear program.

Iran nuclear: Trump extends Obama's 'worst deal ever'
From the article:

Quote:Donald Trump's White House has renewed sanctions relief for Iran, despite the US president's past criticism.

The easing of sanctions is part of a crucial nuclear deal brokered in 2015 under then-President Barack Obama with five other world powers.

That won't be a cakewalk tough. He'd somehow have to evade the secret service while abroad.

Wonder what the odds are he just says fuck it and don't come back from this trip by rerouting Air Force One to Moscow.

I think secret service would bring him back. He is somehow the property of the US.

That's not a bad thing. Shows that sometimes this clown can actually do things right, if only by accident. Basically he talked a lot of shit during the election but didn't believe any of it. If Obama era policy is extended and tension with Iran eases that's a win for everyone.

The thought has crossed my mind. Trump attempting to run a Presidency in exile. Conducting State business by tweet and Russian TV pressers for as long as he's useful to Putin, then the sudden "heart attack," once there's enough leverage over Pence. "Sad!"
