Ronald Reagan forced 50 states to adopt 21 drinking age. Threatened to withhold federal highway funds. Would Trump have to do the same? Age of consent would not go well in California. Their powerful and wealthy Silicon Valley would lobby to defend business interests.

South Dakota challenged Reagan all the way to the Supreme Court. SD lost. They raised drinking age. Will Trump tweet age of consent at 3AM?

Not so much age of consent, but rather if there is going to be little chance of implementing it, why not enrol media classes for all? Get the populace engaged in digital matters and how to be more aware to protect themselves online.
