The -- the international economy going to keep our economy going if we don't have a strong United States.
At preserving whatever stability others around the world this economy will not have sustained -- I will not -- I will not.

That has it seems no foundation.
No basis in preparation whatsoever.

When we have somewhat more modest constraints -- and and needs and requirements where it anyway preserving.
