Pondering... What is Mike Pence up to these days? Has he been seen in public recently? Is he invited to the State Dinner?

Simple. Macron just holds his wife's hand...both, if need be...and when Trump makes his hand grab move, Froggy just shows his occupied hands, maybe with that tilted side glance guys use when they want to say "Yeah, this is dumb, but the wife....".

Trump could prise the hands apart, but that would risk showing how much smaller his hands are compared to hers.

He declared it on the day he took office.

Also, isn't there still a lot of money raised for his inauguration that isn't accounted for?

Moar Coal!
… the Trump Administration has been exploring another way to help coal and nuclear generators: the Defense Production Act of 1950.… Motivated by the Korean War, it allows the president broad authority to boost US industries that are considered a priority for national security.… The goal would be to give some form of preference to coal and nuclear plants that are struggling to compete with cheap natural gas.

No need to test, they've been going off for a couple of hundred years now - they are very low yield, but the fallout is widespread.

and he can save the USPS by bringing back the Pony Express.

Also a boost to both the alfalfa farmers who feed the ponies and Native Americans who chase them...
