How will his presidency turn out, and do you think he will receive a second term?

I think he will do a lot of good. I also think he might do some bad due to his inexperience in politics. However I do think that he has good intentions and I think that even if it's only by a little bit, the good will inevitably outweigh the bad.

If the Democratic party and the people opposing Trump continue to act the way they are currently, I think that he will receive a second term regardless of what happens during his run. A large portion of Trump's voter base are people who don't even really agree with any of Trump's stances in the slightest, they're just fed up of the way that the political left/Democrats in America are acting. People are fed up of being called racist or misogynists or white nationalists over nothing, and violent protesters that we've seen the last couple of days just add more fuel to that fire and make people support Trump even more.

However, if the Democrats can change up their message entirely, and run someone fresh against Trump, I think they could do well. But so long as they keep up this thing of screaming about how racist Trump and his supporters are, they're unlikely to win against him 4 years from now. Also, I'm not taking this Calexit thing seriously, but if they actually left the US then the Democrats would never win another election ever again.

When it comes to the second term, a part of me feels like he won't run again unless he does an outstanding job. From what I've seen these past couple of months, I can only picture Trump being like "oh fuck I actually made it, I'm having to go through with this." Of course this would be the case for anyone elected president, however due to his lack of political experience, he has to learn everything that goes in to being a president. Where as if it were Bernie Sanders or even Marco Rubio, they at least know the role more with their past experience. I'm not here to say Trump needs a political background, but it would have been more of an advantage. 

I've come to terms with him being the president, I'm not thrilled but I feel he will pull back on 70% of what he said he will do. There's no possible way Trump is this conservative by any means.

The stances he has taken publically aren't even all that Conservative. Economically, Trump is entirely Conservative. But when it comes to a lot of social issues, Trump is actually more liberal than probably any of the other Republicans who were originally running. Trump isn't against gay marriage and he isn't against abortion. These are both things that pretty much every Republican usually is. You have to remember that when he was initially running, the Republicans hated him, a lot of them still do, and part of that is because he doesn't fully represent their political viewpoints. I don't think people protesting quite understand how lucky they got with Trump rather than other Republicans. They think Trump is gonna revoke gay marriage or take away trans rights or demonise all women who have abortions, but that is simply not the case. However, if you ended up with someone like Ted Cruz, that would actually be what you'd end up with.

IMO if you normally vote Democrat, Trump is probably the best possible result to come from the GOP. He's far more in line socially with the Democrats than any of the other Republicans are, even though he may still vary on a lot.

One wrong tweet and there will be an irradiated crater where California used to be. On the plus side, at least we'll have a new setting for fallout 5.

I can go into details why he'll be good and why I think he'll be good as Reagan but I won't be saying anything new that lots of people who like him have said about him.

I'll say this though. I believe how Trump feeds his ego is by doing a good job and people thinking he's successful. If he treats the US as he did with his Trump Real Estate business the economy will be as good as it was in the 50s.

There are two main politics that exist when it comes to economics.

The ones you pay lots of tax, have not a lot of money but have loads of free services.

and..

The ones that you pay less tax, the ones that businesses thrive and the ones that have more jobs. The type of politics which you have a fat paycheck every month that gives you the personal freedom to pay for those services yourself or opt out.

(I'm pro free essential healthcare though but that's because I live in England. That's another story though).

Trump's economics are quite conservative/libertarian and less left authoritarian(socialism).

A lot of people don't like him because the way he talks, they think he's racist because he's not PC. This is what I have to say.

The Americans who are struggling are not black, white, women but people without a job because all the businesses have moved to China and other places.

Same thing here.

It's nothing to do with race or gender but with how much dough you're making.

Conservative governments' create jobs and lower taxes....what's wrong with that?

On economic affairs, I'm a conservative at heart. Now, on other issues, I'm other various things.

Yeah that whole situation is just dumb, it's not like crowd size is a big deal anyway.

16195013_1274264722619790_6514756276627957013_n.jpg

But yeah, really don't get what the big deal is.

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, NO MORE TPP. That's a positive for Trump supporters and Bernie Supporters.

It's funny that the whitehouse press guy thought it was a big enough deal to talk about it and even funnier that he decided to lie. Or sorry, he used "alternative facts."

 

I'm curious to see what he follows through on. I am hopeful, just very doubtful.

Don't be. The President doesn't even have enough power to approve his own budget, unlike Congress.

 

On topic: I'm pretty excited, but then again, so was I when Obama went into office... Look how that turned out. My bet is, nothing's gonna happen much, but a second term is likely.

If more people would stop being so ignorant and scared then they'd see the good from what he's doing.

 

Can we talk about this whole abortion thing he's signed? I'm not completely sure what it was he signed but, a lot of feminists are screaming saying now young girls will have to resort to more dangerous means of abortion, and that Trump has already ruined America, but from what I understand, the thing he signed was to stop funding going to OTHER COUNTRIES to pay for other peoples abortions? 

But all over Facebook I'm seeing absolute idiots screaming and raging about how he is ruining America?! All I'm seeing is that he is saving them money?

He's signed a thing that stops America from funding foreign companies that perform abortions. It isn't quite just saving money. America has a certain budget set aside for foreign funding or whatever, so basically the funds not being used to fund companies that perform abortions will be used else where, unless of course he downsizes the total budget that is set aside.

what about the pipeline in Dakota?

I think it's a very practical thing and will work out well. I understand it's bad for the environment too though, so that's not great.

The only real issue I have is that they're trying to force people to sell their land. If they weren't trying to force people into selling their land I'd probably be more in favour of it than against it.

so far so bad

There's been at least as much good as there has been bad imo.

Aren't you at least happy about the TPP? That was a big Bernie talking point. He wanted that gone too.

I highly doubt that. Cutting the TPP has more effect on the other countries involved than it does on the US. Many countries have gone on record stating that the TPP will die without the US, which obviously implies that it's a bit of a one sided relationship.

The economy will be fine... for now at least.

But you don't even know anything Obama did. The only thing you probably even know about Obama is Obamacare, and the majority of people agree that Obamacare is a disaster. I may be wrong, but I highly doubt you can name anything he actually did without having to Google it first.
