Re: Trump Presidency Predictions Thread

The right answer is record deficits. Trump wants to cut taxes bigly and GOP congress will acquiesce. Trump also wants to spend a ton on infrastructure and defense and there will be some resistance but he'll largely get that. I don't see a lot of corresponding spending cuts.

Ummmm...Your first paragraph is a reality right now.

Like 98% of Ukraine wants to be part of Russia. Big whoop.

Re: Trump Presidency Predictions Thread

I can tell you what won't happen, as we have about 10 year advantage on you guys in electing Trump-like candidate.

At no point would the American people say "oh, that was a crappy mistake, look at all the **** that happened since Trump was elected".
From now on every ****ty thing that will happen (and A LOT of ****ty things will happen) is going to be blamed on the liberals/left wing/obama/hillary/the media/SCOTUS.

After 4 years of every prediction that you can come up with, Trump will get reelected on a platform of being MORE TRUMP. Explaining that he was held back by leftist or liberals or moderate republicans.

It will take a whole lot longer than you think for the "left" to get back in power, even though things will get much worse in every aspect of life.

Re: Trump Presidency Predictions Thread

As stated in another thread, 50% of the voters elected this idiot. Can't wait to see how many acknowledge that vote a year from now. Scares me to think I live amongst such dolts. This will go down in history in a very bad way. Say goodnight to the country you woke up in this morning we are ****ed!

So, basically the same trend line of the last 8 years.

Re: Trump Presidency Predictions Thread

The following is speculation:

The stock market is propped up by 0% rates. It will crash slowly in a huge bubble that threatens the dollar. Bitcoin will reach an ATH. Trump will mostly be blamed initially, but some will point to his prescient comments about the market. However, the short of it is that people will rally behind Trump. Social security and Medicare will be affected substantially. Trump will eventually finger and take on the Fed through historic speeches. If he doesn't die like many before him who have challenged central banking, then he will curtail the system whereby the govt lends money from private banks instead of just printing it themselves. He will also invest heavily in infrastructure. These two things will lead to enormous American prosperity.

Trump will also make inner cities better, in terms of crime, education, and unemployment. He won't go after gay marriage, drugs, or abortion at a supreme court or federal level, with the exception that he may legalize all or a substantial class of drugs in his second term. ISIS will be defeated swiftly, and standstill relations between Russia will improve. America will no longer be involved in fighting in 7 countries as they are now. NATO will be renegotiated, or the current terms will be enforced better than they are now.

Healthcare outcomes re insurance will improve, but only a little. Education outcomes for K-8 will improve substantially. Race relations will be better, and people slowly over time will shift their opinion and applaud his "unifying" rhetoric. His success will merit a political dynasty, and he will easily win a second term, in part due to getting large numbers of the black and other minority votes. His opponent, who will not be a crony or corrupt, will be seen and labeled as ineffective, putting the country back into gridlock that we've worked hard to jostle it from, and that's what the race will be decided on (assuming he's alive of course.)

The biggest clue is the FBI. If the FBI finds the massive level of corruption in the Clinton Foundation and many people go down, then Trump is more likely to do better things. If only a couple people go down, then people are "playing ball" and it's more likely to be status quo.

People will claim their opposition was just politicking (or won't even recall having been staunchly opposed to Trump) and won't have to answer for their uninformed comments like "the world is doomed".

America will become a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Not a Mad Max desert without water, but a land of unmowed lawns and empty Home Depot parking lots as illegal aliens make a non-Taco Bell run for the border.

President-elect Trump prediction thread - whats he gonna do now??

Now that we're a few months out from the inauguration, think it would be interesting to get some predictions on what he's actually going to do with the power of the Oval Office. And what's going to happen, now that the unthinkable has actually happened.

Thoughts about his major "policy" points.
The wall gets built - lol no
Mass deportation - mebbe
Clinton is the subject of a prosecution case - yes


Other things that I would expect include:
Increased unemployment, debt, deficit, & gas prices
Lower GDP & individual income

Freely admit to being wrong about stuff before. Hope it continues

What say you?

Re: President-elect Trump prediction thread - whats he gonna do now??

I predict:

- walk back some obama executive orders (but not all)
- tax cuts
- replace obamacare
- refill supreme court

I think those are the main ones. I kind of wish he'd campaigned as a one term only pres -- so he could limit how drawn into the politics (and reelection) stuff.

Biggest question: will he begin to edge up interest rates --- to stop relying on an artificial economy --- even though that will cause stock market drops? I hope so.

Anyone interested in making a wager on at least 500 miles of 16+ foot wall being built on the U.S.-Mexico border? I want the pro-wall side.

Re: President-elect Trump prediction thread - whats he gonna do now??

Start building a wall, but not finish it. Mexico won't pay.
Huge tax cuts for all (but mostly the wealthy).
Decapitate the EPA and most environmental restrictions.
Huge increase in spending (mainly defense and infrastructure).
Repeal but not replace Obamacare - millions will be once more uninsured.
Pull out of Syria.
