    President Trump

    The world awaits the inauguration of the new president with a kind of stunned dread .

    I hope that this man is , in some ways , changed by the appointment , and , in others , steadfast in his beliefs .

    Coming from a business background , I hope his government runs , not with the standard vast deficit , but , more as a business should .
    I hope that being wealthy , himself , will reduce the amount he can be influenced by big corporate lobby , and help in his negotiations with other countries .

    I hope he is good for the USA .
    I really do .

    Trump was not my first choice (or second or third or forth) but I voted for him. Calling people racist and Nazis just because they don't believe in EU style socialism is not going to win you any friends-just some advice for the future.

    This is my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking

    Trump - the American version of Brexit.

    My opinion, which is worth exactly what you just paid for it, is that Trump was not elected so much for himself as a repudiation of career politicians whose only goal and purpose is to get re elected. When did being a politician become a career?

    Hate to say it, but I’m glad he won considering HRC was the other option. The way I figure it, the fat cats are the ones who have been running the country for quite a while now. So why not let on of them take over the driver’s seat for a while.

    The really good thing that I enjoy about all this, is that Trump not only wreck the RNC, but the also DNC, with him going from nothing to be considered as serious to be elected to begin with. Well, the RNC & DNC wrecked themselves actually. And they both deserved it.

    The GOP has done amazingly well out of this with control of the House, the Senate, 1600 Penn Ave, a Supreme Court pick and maybe as many as three more over the next four years.

    From 3rd Jan 2017 to 2nd Jan 2019, I think that we're going to see a legislative whirlwind, with the 115th Congress being more productive than 112, 113 and 114 combined.

    I also think it likely that the state of New Columbia will be added to the Union, with the New Columbia Admission Act being reintroduced to the house, following an 86% Yes vote in the referendum.
    The Old Republic was a stupidly run organisation which deserved to be taken over. All Hail Palpatine!

    It seems all of the "experts" are wrong on every count. The prediction was that if Trump was elected then the stock market would take a very deep dive. While the overnight futures were down a lot, the market itself was well up and flirting with all times highs for most of the afternoon.

    Posting a photo of his hot wife.

    That sort of epitomizes the demographic that voted for him.
