The Moustache Of Empty Promises

This isn't even close to being Bolton's official job but lol whatever.

"Within a year" is at least a bit more realistic than the brexiteer cry of "eleventy zillion trade deals on day 1!" or whatever (and they say trade deals like Trump does, as if they're scoring a big sale, instead of just desperately trying to replace existing agreements with the EU).

But there's also a little thing called Congress and a big thing called "industry lobbyists" and trade deals are when everyone gets their snouts in the trough so, uh, good luck with that.
