No, no 4th Reich. This is what I think (at the moment). Four years of Trump (or Pence) will get the US well on its way to ex-superpower status. Military might doesn't hold the power it used to. Clean energy is what will drive the next industrial revolution and nations that reject that will fall behind. Trump seems to have only the military industrial complex and the coal industry in his tiny mind. So as the US joins Syria and Nicaragua, China and Europe (and the rest of the world) will forge ahead with green energy providing the backbone for economic growth.

One consequence of Brexit will be to unite Europe even further, just what Merkel is calling for. And that could be much easier without the UK.

In the foreseeable future, superpowers on their way up will be China and Europe, on their way down will be the US and Russia, former enemies who seem bizarrely joined at the hips in some corrupting way. That's why I say Merkel has just become the world's most powerful person. Thanks to Trump, it's certainly not POTUS anymore.

It's profound actually. But don't beat yourself up if you don't get it.
