Remember that once you are over 21 years old the process for a parent to petition for an adult child becomes quite backlogged and cumbersome. Especially if you married a foreigner.

Please let me know what has happened in your case.

Thanks for your interest in my case. Honestly, I haven't done anything about it. I basically solved the issue mentioned in the original post of taking care of my aging parent by moving said parent overseas to live near me. In the meantime, the country of which I am now a citizen passed a law that finally recognizes dual citizenship. So if I wanted to regain US citizenship, perhaps I could use this factor as a reason for seeking reinstatement. However, unless I find there is an additional compelling reason to seek US citizenship again, the issue has been become irrelevant for the time being.

You must start the entire process all over.

How long would the process be to re-apply for US citizenship.

I gave mine up when I married in Sweden (long story), and that was 11 years ago.
Now divorced, I am moving back to the US hopefully.

You must apply like any stranger unless you have a US citizen child over 21 that can petition for you.

I suppose the situation is even worse under Trump right? It can't be better I assume.

Or do I still have some chance.
Let it lapse 6 years ago I guess when I returned to France.
