Not normal times

it is hard to imagine that the US government would seriously consider pulling the IANA contract back under its purview: it would face enormous pressure from internet organizations and other governments and such a move would risk fragmenting the internet's global addressing systems.

Do you really think the Chump-in-Chief cares about that? If someone can get Fox News to discuss the subject one morning and a talking head grunts "AMERICA INTERNET GREAT", his tiny fingers will be tweeting "Donald J Trump will keep America safe from foreign ownership of our internet #USAUSA !!" before anyone can safely digest their breakfast.
