A Few First Thoughts About a Trump Presidency

img_3692-trumpThere are a few things that immediately come to mind about what we can expect to see from President Trump.

First and foremost is the Supreme Court. Kudos to the Senate Republican majority leader Mitch McConnnel for holding off the nominee of President Obama for replacement of Justice Scalia. We will now see a true conservative majority in the Supreme Court for decades to come.

Second, there will finally be action on illegal immigration. The wall Donald Trump constantly talked about during his campaign will be built. It will be a combination of physical walls in certain areas and sensor walls at others. It can easily be paid for by imposing a tariff on all funds being wired to Mexico, Central and South America.

Third, watch how many executive orders are overturned almost immediately in a Trump presidency. The EPA, the IRS and the Justice Department are going to see some incredible changes in the extremely short period of time. Those that used their positions in these agencies to target conservative groups should probably start packing up their desks.

Fourth, the environmental movement is going to need to make some major adjustments. America has rejected their faulty science. If their projections are correct, then the world is in for some events worthy of a major motion picture. When those events do not happen, the intellectually honest among them are going to have to admit that their beliefs, which bordered on pseudo-religion, were totally wrong.

Fifth, there are going to be some major changes in foreign-policy. You are going to see some major changes in how we deal with Russia, China, ISIS, etc. You’re going to see some cooperation between the Brexit leaders in Great Britain who share many of Trump’s political beliefs. You are going to see NATO members reaffirm their support of the organization and commit to meeting their NATO Funding obligations.

Sixth, you’re going to see some huge changes in health insurance before Donald Trump even takes office. Obamacare is effectively dead. It was dying on its own with the ridiculously large increases in premiums each year. Liberals had hoped to impose a single-payer system but now you will see a total drop in government controlled healthcare. Contrary to what the liberal media have been saying, the Republicans do have a plan ready to replace Obamacare once it’s been repealed.

Also, you’re going to have to see some type of change in the Democrat party. Over the past eight years, they have lost thousands of positions throughout the country. They have become a distinct minority in state legislatures throughout the country. They are a small minority of governors. The Democrat party has depended on demographics carrying the day for so long and it has not happened. They are going to have to make some major changes or they will no longer function as a national party.

Finally, I wonder about what’s going to happen with Hillary Clinton. A regular politician would drop the investigations but I don’t think Trump is going to do that. I think you’re going to see a lot more about the criminality of the Clinton Foundation. I think you’re going to see a trump Justice Department that seals the lid on this corrupt organization. A regular politician would shake the hand of his failed opponent and enjoy the day. But a business person like Donald Trump has no problem kicking his downed opponent repeatedly to ensure they never get back up. Pundits will say this is not the way things are done but they will once again be wrong. I believe Donald Trump will use the Clinton foundation as an example of the “drain the swamp” that he has spoken of repeatedly. It truly is a new day in America.
