And lead to the scenario you note above.
So he waits for congress to send him their best deal and then doesn't sign it, forcing congress to overide it or go broke.

Makes interesting battle seeing as each house has different electors to appease

Meanwhile the country as a whole goes tits up and an emergency is declared where only Trump makes the decisions

We deserve it as we allowed our news to be spoon fed to us without thinking that the news was a money-making source
