Trump and Brexit

Recommended Posts

After Trump, what if the next President lifts the ban on the 7 countries? Would the next President be allowed to do that? 

I read Trump is also reducing immigration with the aim of hiring more Americans. Would a future U.S. President be able to reverse this? If yes, then what would be the point of what Trump is doing now? 

 

That's what happened with Brexit. 40 years ago, British government decided to join EU. Now, they are leaving EU. Would a future British government be able to re-join EU?

Anything is possible.  It depends upon the mood of the voting majority in the US.  Like with your country, the politicians who hold office have certian powers of their offices and they can, and often do reverse decisions.  

 

Not anything is possible. It is entirely conceivable that Trump will go so far down the nationalism road that no one wants to play ball anymore.

And that is a bad thing? 

 

Didn't say it was or wasn't. Just pointing out that some choices, once taken, can't be undone.

     Basically anything done as an executive order by the President can by changed by the next President.  On the other hand if Congress makes a bill and it is signed into law by the President then that is something else altogether.  Then that requires an act of Congress to repeal which is quite difficult to accomplish.

 

     But it seems the things you're asking about are executive orders and they can simply be changed by new executive orders.  Other things can be accomplished similar to how Trump is getting things done by funding, or not, various agencies or choosing to which laws to enforce (like when Obama decided to not bother with prosecuting pot anymore but now that's back on the table).  As long as it's under the purview of the Executive Branch lots of things can be changed each time a new President comes into office.

Oh in a free country with a decent system in place any government can pretty much change what a previous one did. Happens all the time hence the kinda see-sawing we get to the economy and society as people play 'lets govern the country'.

 

Example in NZ we have just made a law saying that no further fossil fuel exploration will be done,and permits will not be renewed when they run out. Now there's good intentions behind this but the next time National is elected they will just overturn it so it seems to be a waste to me. (Unless National come to their senses and realize that fossil fuels are not the future.)
