QBLOGS / D-day is almost upon us and like most Latins I have a lump in my throat a churn in my stomach.

What’s next for Pura Vida?

I take back what I said is a wait and see attitude. When 100% of the cabinet are either CEOs or generals, they do not salute, they give the orders. Orders from the President?

Already the Trump camp has issues with Europe, China and Taiwan. The other countries are holding their breath. So are the immigrants who are lined in poverty, working illegally in the U.S. and wanting to escape their destitute lives by taking on low level jobs gringos do not want.

We all know the scenario of if the immigrants are denied or deported in either Costa Rica or the US, because who cleans the hotel rooms, the house, picks the crops, digs the ditches…?

But that is not what brings me to fear.

It is the very thought that so many countries have powerful armies and nuclear capability and Trump has so little diplomacy in his curriculum vitae. That scares hell out of me.

Put that on top Costa Rica’s assembly of American parts which are at jeopardy, even in the field of health. We import parts, assemble and test and send the product back to the United States. Right now a win-win situation. After D-day, who knows?

A 35% tariff?

Even without being president, xenophobia permeates the U.S. and foreign policy regarding Palestinians and/or Israel has become a big ass point of contention.

How many presidents does the U.S. have at the same time?

So many questions and so many of them without answers. We must, not by choice, but we must just wait and see.

I keep saying that but in truth my stomach hurts from worry.
