MAGA - what a great speech! Future looks bright.
Must be exciting to be an american today. Prosperity and optimism and winning are so much more fun than divisive bullying and globalist theft and war with russia. Plus Barron is hilarious. Glorious stuff! Good on you democracy.

Chat on mobile bug?
When I open the in-game messaging window on mobile (Chrome, iOS) my country messages have been "resetting" to a past (earlier) message spontaneously, forcing me to scroll down in the tiny chat window to read the latest message. Anyone else seeing this?

@Matticus

haha, i mean... the Gov't has ties to the cartels. if we want to help Mexico, we need to make sure the Mexican populous doesn't hate us, and our help coincides with corruption being dismantled from the Mexican gov't framework

Not readin Yanik (must be muted) makes this conversation rather hard to follow.

Did the Boston tea party constitute violence, or was it a peaceful protest where someone else's property was destroyed?

I agree, but that hasn't stopped us in the past or recent history, hence my befuddlement.

"My hometown is poor af and is a sanctuary city.

Your hometown is poor af because it has to support illegal immigrants. Petition your mayor to rescind the town's sanctuary status.

Yes, hit 2 birds with one stone. It rids the town of illegal immigrants who are a drain on the town's funds and protects the town's federal funding.

You have no clue which city Goldie refers to, so you have no idea what the actual problem stems from. I imagine any solution to the financial problem is much more complex than simply accepting Trump's decree.

Well, youth flight to larger cities have left the rural labor force somewhat understaffed. Workers from Mexico are the only way all the corn and apples get harvested every year.

City is poor af because all the manufacturing jobs moved out in waves over the past 50 years, with tourism drying up too. All that replaced it was retail jobs.

Consider Autumn turn. A player has a single original supply center. His last unit is somewhere else.
His last supply center is captured. He will be dead when Fall begins. However, he is in a position where he can capture one of my many supply centers. Will I lose that supply center in the Fall if he moves to that providence?
