Assuming that secessions, civil war or violent disturbances take place as a result, he and the GOP rank-and-file are under the belief that they can quash such insurrections and rule by fiat.

A serious question: would countries like China or Mexico support a government ruled by Trump in the event of internal war or secession? Or would they recognize a splinter state like California as sovereign?

Why ask if foreign countries would diplomatically recognize breakaway parts of the US as sovereign? Such questions are settled by military force, not diplomacy, and no other nation on earth can meaningfully project power in the continental US.

This is one of many reasons secession talk is farcical.
