About any other president that would be a silly question. About our fearless Cheeto, you can only hope.

I'll take a stab at it. There are many Puerto Ricans in NYC, where Trumpelstilstskin lived and hired people. Presumably the question of whether they could be legally hired must have come up in 40 years. So I'm guessing that he knows they're citizens.

I primed it with Lyle's black treacle. I had intended to add a bit of Stevia to sweeten it a bit, and it slipped my mind. No matter. It's very spruce-y.
I like it. My wife hates it. If she tells me that again, I'll just say: "Don't Bring Me Down". :)

6%!?!?!! I’m loving the way that has evolved from the original spruce “soft drink”.

Yup. I can't make a low alcohol drink to save my life. :)
