Hmmm, will teams have to figure out how to get across the walls (apparently we're stepping up security on the northern border as well now)? Regardless, Trump will not be the president so we don't have to worry about his utter lack of discipline in addressing other nations. Then again, he and his minions might try to repeal the 22nd Amendment.
