    Increase the number of Representatives in the House

    Another thing you Americans could focus on would be granting statehood to Puerto Rico and Washington DC. That might also pave the path to reforming your electoral college.

    Increase the number of Representatives in the House

    I'm quite fond of our mixed-member proportional system, TYVM. The people who're whining about overhang mandates are usually just some berks who need to go bang their brain-boxes on the subject. "Oof, me no understand, where those seats come from? Math hard. Big numbers make brain hurty."

    Probably because he doesn't mention them much. I don't think he could find their country on a map. And if Trump mentions the Netherlands, it's going to be something along the lines of <Trump>"The Netherlanders... build good canals. To keep the water out. And tullips. Maybe we will ask them to...
