You can't blame this whole mess on one man. This is something we have known about since the 1970's and no one had really tried to make preparations or repairs.

Unfortunately, international trade is NEVER conducted in "third world currencies," as you put it.
Also that "superiority" will be dubious at best once China finishes dumping it's dollars,
and OPEC refuses to sell oil in dollar amounts.
Sending $770M anywhere is at best a stop gap and at worst another mess for the next administration to be blamed for.
$620Million - Direct food shipments (mainly to Africa)
$150Million - In farm aid, to farmers in Developing countries.
So now what happens to that extra $600 rebate check us tax payers are going to get back in the mail?
