Six Months In

Six months into the Trumpocalypse, Canadians have awakened to discover that the president's NAFTA demands are surprisingly tame, which is to say, a relief, requiring only a little tweaking from Canadian negotiators.  In the U.S., meanwhile, the Never Trumpers are drilling ever deeper into the Russia file, fine-tuning their impeachment strategies, and consoling themselves with the thought that the more sane Trump's policies appear, the more he will alienate his voter base and self-destruct.  We're lucky here in Canada.  Our politicians break their promises and it's no big deal.  Trump's "populist promises," on the other hand, "are starting to look fraudulent."
