    "The Donald" is now officially President of the United States (minus most of his cabinet picks) He has a friendly Congress to work with, and has promised:

    * To be the greatest jobs creating President in American history.

    * To bring many off shored jobs back home

    * To build a wall on southern boarder and force Mexico to pay for it

    * To reduce the defecit

    * To force all of our allies to pay the full price for their defense

    * To repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something better

    * To cut taxes (mostly for the rich)

    * To drastically increase military spending

    * To reduce crime

    * To "tear up our trade agreements, and re negotiate them"

    So.....How many of these things will he actually do? I'd say He'll cut taxes for the rich, and increase military spending, but very little else. Any thoughts?

    'Stand and deliver!' was what highwaymen said to people before they robbed them.

    He may just surprise everyone. I have a gut feeling he will do all of the above except cut taxes just for the rich. He will cut taxes for everyone.
    Being rich is not evil if gained honestly. Many of you seem very pessimistic, try a little optimism for a change.
    Give the guy a chance. It's Day 1.
