Let's give Trump a year
I did. It didn't help.
I have my doubt's about him myself. I'm convinced however everyone should calm down and give President elect Trump a year before passing judgement, as good things sometimes take time.
People do not change. Especially old people.
The reality is that you are stuck with Trump and you are trying to find ways to live with it. You have to give Trump four years whether you like it or not. If Trumps reign ends sooner it will be because he does something not because you did something.
very much doubt President elect Trump is going to be the monster the Democrats claim he is, nor will he be the savior Republicans claim.
I am not a Democrat nor Republican but I do lean left. I do not think Trump will be a monster. I think he will be a bumbling bafoon who makes foreign policy mistakes one after the other until the US has no friends left. Not such a good thing.
I think the majority of law making will be done by lobbyists, influencer's and republican extremists who will have a virtually free hand to do what they like. Trumps lack of control is what will be most damaging not him being a monster.
He has already been part of significant damage in terms of dividing the nation - but that is not all his fault, be is more a benefactor than a cause. His winning the election has also resulted in nut cases having a lot more confidence. I don't know how much damage they will cause as a result.
