This coming from a person that supports no restriction abortions of viable babies for any reason everytime you vote for this extreme Democrat Party.

Can you even grasp the inhumanity you support? You spew lies about Trump being a racist while supporting infanticide. Quit being such a hypocrite.

In the world outside of our minds, and the chemicals and electrical impulses that we are, there is no real good or evil. We are organisms that make decisions based on traits we have evolved to have to increase our chance of survival. What can we therefore gather from the opinions of the majority?

So you believe that raping, then strangling a 12 year old girl to death is not evil? You don't deserve to live. You are a perfect example of everything that is wrong in the world.

You bought every word, you poor little sod.

I'm certain he will be better than President ''INERTIA'' Obama.

What we'll see will be;-

Fewer illegal immigrants.

A new deal negotiated whereby Europe will have to meet 75% of it's own defense budget with the U.S. contributing 25% , as opposed to the other way around as it is now.

A significant import tariff imposed on all imported Asian goods thus forcing them to stop using America as a dumping ground for their goods and produce.

A reduction in corporation tax as an incentive to stop American companies relocating overseas and to attract those who have done so to return and create American jobs.

The establishment of a points system for immigrants, with only those with skills and professions required by the country being granted entry.

A repatriation of all illegal immigrants along with an increase in the number of law enforcement personnel to ensure the enforcement of this very necessary measure.

Form free trade arrangements with only those nations which have similar industrial relation legislation and health & safety laws in place.

Make sure that the ''whinging' ethnic groups are made aware that the onus is on them to ingratiate themselves with Americans and to adopt American values and principles.

The road back to recovery will be arduous and fraught with ''sniper fire'' from the P.C, brigade but the many bullets will have to be bitten and if Trump keeps his nerve and remain resolute to his stated manifesto it can and will be achieved.

Trump could go down as the best President the United States ever had.

Why are you calling Obama "President 'INERTIA' Obama"? Inertia is defined as "a property of matter by which it continues in its existing state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line, unless that state is changed by an external force" by Merriam-Webster. President Obama was hardly the same as President George W. Bush! For starters, Obama had no Supreme Court trial like Bush V. Gore. His win was not very controversial (especially compared to President Trump's!). Obama stopped our Great Recession, which George W. Bush CAUSED. Obama was also the first black president! Your nickname President 'INERTIA' Obama makes no sense. Obama did anything but keep our country the same! While I cannot deny we will see fewer illegal immigrants, we will also see a sharp decline of legal immigrants, who help keep our economy going. Illegal immigrants can also be upstanding non-citizens. Next, President Trump wants to drastically increase our military budget. If the 20 billion dollars President Trump wants to give to our military don't go there, then where will they go? Next, I would argue that imported Asian goods also stimulate our economy. Nobody would buy Asian products anymore if there was a significant import tariff imposed, which would make Asian leaders mad at us. Diplomacy is one of the keys to prospering. Getting Asians mad at us is NOT the way to "Make America Great Again". A reduction in corporation tax would not stop most American companies from relocating overseas. Other countries have different laws that are more advantageous to the companies. Other countries also have less strict labor laws, and cheaper labor. A reduction in corporation tax would definitely not attract companies to return to America. I don't think President Trump will establish a points system for immigrants. Everything he has done so far has shown that he wants nothing at all to do with immigrants. Enlarging our border fence, canceling our refugee agreement with Australia, and banning travel to the USA from seven countries for 90 days help show this. Next, many illegal immigrants come here to escape from the horrors of their country! Many of them also try to gain citizenship, but our citizenship process can take several years. You need to legally immigrate here, then wait in a legal status, then get a green card, then, after 5 years of holding a green card, they can become a citizen. Also, in a survey, when 1,000 U.S. citizens took America’s official citizenship test, 29 percent couldn’t name the vice president. Seventy-three percent couldn’t correctly say why we fought the Cold War. Forty-four percent were unable to define the Bill of Rights. 6 percent couldn’t even circle Independence Day on a calendar. We hold immigrants to a much higher standard than ourselves! Why should they be sent to a different country after they gave up their life there to come here? Why should they be kicked out of America after they know more about it than 40% of Americans? I cannot debate about the free trade arrangements, those do sound good. According to Merriam-Webster, ingratiate is "to gain favor or favorable acceptance for by deliberate effort". Ethnic groups are not whining, they are complaining because the ones who are complaining are put a distinct disadvantages. Racial bias still exists. They are still the minority. Many of them have to fight to get a good education and future. Their ancestors were put through immeasurable hardships, which they are still recovering from! The KKK still exists! They should not have to ingratiate themselves with white people. Instead, white people should ingratiate themselves with them! Also, for the record, I am white. Next, the road back to recovery from what? Also, when has President Trump EVER kept his nerve? One of President Trump's hallmarks is that he is unpredictable! I would argue against President Trump's manifesto, but I do not know exactly what it is to you. Therefore, I would like you to define it. President Trump's current approval rating is 37%. His approval rating is the worst in 72 years. I highly doubt he will go down as "the best President the United States ever had", especially with Lincoln, Washington, and Roosevelt holding the top three spots. Thank you.

I believe that there will be good things he will do and bad things that he will do.

I also believe that people should think of other options. Canada is great and all but ehhhh.

We should rather believe in our own potential.

The policies that Trump proposed were not totally negative and " introvert", opposing globalization and closing up the gate to " American dream" of all of us. He actually retarded the " illegal " and " useless" immigrants who according to him " deprived jobs opportunities of the Americans". People like you and me truthfully desire for the dream and the future will have faith in America "paradise"( just intonation) and vice versa

Trump is the result of an extremist Democrat Party who have become fanatical ideologs caring only for transforming America into a nation of political correctness and Socialism.

They have for decades pandered to, and care only for, their voting blocks who will elect Democrats no matter what. Look at the Blue areas of the election map to see who votes for Democrats.

All those Red areas of the map are made up of Americans who are fed up with being used to buy Democrat votes.

So Trump was their vehicle of change. I believe Trump is actually tough enough to once again lift up all of the middle class and middle America.

He's not a career politician! He does not live in fear of the backlash from our biased political correct media's attacks on him.

He is beholden to few people getting to this point and therefore will have a much easier time of focusing on important issues, appointing the correct people for the job, and not worrying about his political future when saying things that are not political correct.

Yes, I believe many things will change as we are already starting to see. Look at the chaos of the Democrat Party simply because of Trump.

Democrats now have a record low number of Democrat controlled legislatures around the nation.

They have lost many State Governorships.

Trump has has already created many changes, and mostly for the better. He was able to get record turnouts from these rural working Americans. He was able to achieve something most people were saying he could never do.

Time will tell if he can get his agendas passed, but one thing i know, he is a very hard worker with an ego and will want to go down in history as the one man who could make America great again.

I hope so!

To be fair, people didn't just attack him due to political correctness. It was also due to his assholery, ex, making fun of a disabled reporter and claiming he liked to "grab women by the pussy". Part of it was political correctness, but part of it was also due to pure dislike of his attitude.

The very people attacking him make up Hollywood and people supporting no restriction abortions for any reason of viable babies when they vote Democrat.

You are teling me that the values of these people actually care about the things Trump said about a woman's private parts?

These same hypocrites talk like that every day in the board room or the locker room.

Look at the explicit sexual garbage Hollywood puts out for our young people to see and experiment with.

These hypocrites have the nerve to piously preach to Trump?

I do not support Trump and I am a very positive person. Therefore, I am still hoping that the Electoral College would change their votes. I know it's not going to ever happen but I'm a positive person.

Back to the question, I think there are many things that Trump will do to help and harm America. For example, Trump is a successful businessman. Even though he doesn't let us know his real net value (tax returns, release them), it's obvious that he's on the richer side. Because of this, he might be able to help our economy, which was ruined in the Great Recession (which was actually caused by Bush and not Clinton or Obama, as Trump states).

Other than that, I do not support anything else. He says that he would deport and prevent illegal immigrants from getting in. I understand that, but using force is not the answer. He also wants to get rid of NATO. That's a very bad decision. If he thinks that NATO isn't doing what they should, call for reform. Other issues that I do not support include, but is not limited to: gun control, gay rights, global warming.

If you are a positive person, try having some positive feelings for late term viable babies that the Democrat Party supports killing for any reason.

If you vote for the Democrat Party, I feel sorry for viabe babies getting drawn and quartered a few weeks from birth. THAT'S NOT A POSITIVE THING!

There's this thing called humanity, and you have been brainwashed by the Left to such a point that your priorities are ALL SCREWED UP!

I guess you Republicans do not understand. Late term abortions are very rare. Only 1% of abortions in the US are after 5 months of pregnancy. Before you argue about something, maybe you should do some research of the topic. I'm brainwashed? You're the one that's brainwashed by Trump and his lies.

I believe he will change America for the better, if only by not continuing to do the wicked things which have been part of the elite's policy, for the last 20 years. Wicked towards America and towards the world.

Donald is the definition of an elite American. American economic policies at the moment are very anti-elitist, with the highest-income business owners paying nearly 50% of their income in taxes (but Trump doesn't pay taxes.) Donald plans on increasing government spending while lowering taxes, which will increase our annual budget deficit as well. The only positive change he brings with him to office is the social movement that backs him. At least the hippies will gtfo the white house.

I think some of both. But I do think it's better than Hitlary. I'm not saying it's perfect. Let's give him a chance because who knows? Maybe he'll prove to be a pretty good president.

Nothing he's done since winning the election has really shown any confidence in the "shaking up Washington" angle, and I can't see how anyone else is at this point, beyond just turning a blind eye to things.

I predict that president-elect Donald Trump will resign. Not immediately, but in time. I don't think he has any knowledge of how to run a country, and I don't even think that he has confidence in that himself.

So no, I don't think anything will change. And honestly you guys have made your own bed, because there was an ambitious man with the experience to make these changes but Bernie Sanders wasn't given a chance :(

I blame the Democratic party for picking the wrong candidate against Trump. Trump voters are enthusiastic about him - half of Hillary's voters just hate her less than they hate Trump.

Never underestimate the power of a campaign driven by enthusiastic and optimistic people.

I would hope not. If Trump resigns, gets killed, or impeached, we'd get Pence. That would be a complete disaster. Like, all of the overly stupid fear-mongering of Trump would be almost entirely justified with Pence.

yes what will change is that dishonesty in the white house will become common place.

scandal which had been almost nonexistent before will be very widespread.

and if anybody thinks that the country will come together in a trump admin then they are smoking something.

most especially after he has lost the popular vote by over two million.

never has this been ever seen in election history.

if anyone see a mandate in that then again they are smoking something.

he does not even think that he has to divest his business interests.

these next four years are going to tumultuous and extremely divided.

as for democrats the lesson from this election has to be, it is the economy.

the economic growth and recovery under this president has been and continues to be not defended at all.

the mistake from the beginning that I always thought was going after health care in the first term.

democrats are tied to a very unpopular health care act.

the republicans have done a great job of telling white America that there dollars are going to brown and black people so that they can have health care while working people get less health care.

this is a seamless argument that has worked very well.

it is not factual but that does not matter, they have convinced people especially white America that it is true.

next up democrats have forgotten about middle America and need to go back to middle America with real economic issues that middle America can believe in.

the democrats have done a good job about sticking up for minority rights but a poor job in helping middle America. they feel left out and while this is not true, there perception is just that.

Hillary Clinton message was how bad trump was but did not tell people two main things they wanted to hear.

number one why she wanted to president and that she was going to do for middle America.

I thought he strategy from the beginning was a bad strategy and I was proven correct.

Yes..... Many... not only america will face change .....but ..... The whole world will change. .

Theoretically he won't do anything to effect my small country, however, since I am interested in more than my own back yard, I should complain about the rumours about his plans to balkanize the internet. Does anyone actually know how data pool delineators work ? Are they like the locks on the Panama Canal or what ? .. Nobody in tech support will answer my questions, they merely obfuscate ..

There has already been a lot of change.

Trump already stopped forcing American tax payers to fund abortions in other nations.

He's trying to stop funding to the Planned Parenthood abortion mills.

He's already eliminated many job killing regulations.

He's already dropped the MOAB bomb on the barbaric Islamic terrorists and sent missiles to respond to the use of chemical weapons by Assad in Syria. Obama refused to care when they crossed the so called red line of chemical weapons.

He's already appointed a wonderful supreme court Justice who will interpret the Constitution like he is suppose to do.... not legislate new laws like forcing every state to change their marriage laws.

He's just getting started and is the first President in our lifetime that is not influenced by the Liberal biased media, nor special interest lobbies. He is his own man and will do the will of the people no matter what the Liberal media says about him.

This is just me but I think we are going to see a temporary Muslim country ban being placed very soon in America. If so Muslims families will be force-fully separated from each other.This could lead to protests which disrupts peace and order.

Other than that we did witness a slight fall in the stock prices as investors were reluctant to invest around the time Trump was elected. But it seems to be back to normal now. Will we have a better infrastructure? Time will tell.

We still have 1400 days of trump's presidency to go so relax and enjoy his on-going tirade of Fake News on Twitter.
