Trump’s threat to Scotland

From an imaginary “threat,” we move to a real one.

Donald Trump says that if he isn’t elected president this year, he may do something drastic.

“I don’t think I’m going to lose, but if I do, I don’t think you’re ever going to see me again, folks. I think I’ll go to Turnberry and play golf or something.”

The Trump Turnberry Resort is located in Scotland.

America’s loss would be Scotland’s gain. Or perhaps the other way around.

Scots frightened by the prospect of a relocated Trump may welcome the last-ditch cooperation by his remaining Republican opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich to stop Trump before he accumulates a majority of delegates to the Republican National Convention– even if it’s unclear exactly what that cooperation entails.

Any old-fashioned trade unionist could have told Cruz and Kasich and the other anti-Trump Republicans that they should have acted much earlier.
