If Wishes Were Nickels

From The Guardian:

President Barack Obama has warned Donald Trump he won’t be able to pursue many of his more controversial policies once he is in office.

In his final international speech before he leaves the White House in January, Obama said he could not guarantee Trump would not try to implement controversial positions he took during campaign but he could guarantee “reality will force him to adjust” how he approaches the issues.

Uh, Mr. President? You seem to assume that Trump has some contact with reality.
