Iran Got Rid of Its Nukes. Can America Get Rid of Its Sanctions?

Will Trump's New Stance Scare Off More GOP Voters?

The Skeptics

I'm curious to know where John Kasich is likely to land if, as the Washington Post story suggests, he is positioning himself for another presidential run in 2020. Or might someone else come along, and pick up the pieces of the GOP left behind after the Trump wrecking ball?

There is strong public support for restraint, and that is only likely to grow as the millennial generation, already the largest age cohort, displaces older Americans in the voting booth. Millennials are generally skeptical of foreign wars, but supportive of immigration and not hostile toward global trade. A smart candidate would at least consider that approach to the world.

But Donald Trump has apparently made up his mind.
