The decision is OUT on this one
Donald J Trump has achieved the unthinkable, for more than half of the people voted for his opponent in the Presidential elecion – Hillary Clinton but now he is now the ‘president-elect’ and will soon begin his journey as the 45th President of the United States. He will take the oath of office on January 20th, and will become our president at exactly 12:01PM on that day.
He ran on a campaign of lies and bigotry, and made many promises that most other candidates would never make besides claiming that he will repeal many of Barack Obama’s Executive orders on his first day in office. But he promises real change, and people are willing to overlook the entire picture of Donald Trump regardless of what it is just to see change. He still has yet to make his tax returns public. No other candidate in history has cheated the people from seeing tax returns before the general election. Does the American electorate care what may be hiding in his returns? Appearently not, as he still won the election and has yet to show his tax returns. Anyone else who even would attempt to run on the platform that he ran on would have surely sunk into oblivion. He made an astounding number of promises that can effect people worldwide if these promises became true. Now we are to judge him on the decisions that he makes. He claims that he will become so popular with the American people, that he will be easily re-elected in 2020. Others say that within a year, he most likely will face impeachment from a Republican controlled Congress. It is no secret that many Republicans in both the House and Senate would rather have the vice-president elect Mike Pence be the President instead of Donald Trump.
But maybe what Donald Trump has said in the election campaign is just rhetoric. What will his first 100 days be like? He proposes to build the ‘great wall’, which will run across the entire southern border with Mexico to keep illegal Mexicans out of the United States, and furthermore, he claims that “the Mexicans will pay for the wall”. He says that he will ban Muslims. He says allot of things and I will list them on this blog. He has lied, vieamently throughout his campaign, has been called out for abusing women in the past by the victims themselves through public comment, even though you heard him repeatedly say that “noone respects women more than I do”, but he was still elected. The majority of his promises are unrealistic, and as long as Donald Trump believes that people support his ideas, he will make bolder promises as time goes on.
Believe it or not, some of his promises are good ones, such as protecting Social Security and cutting taxes and increasing skepticism toward trade, as were some positions by Bill Clinton.
Facts are facts. Donald J. Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. Also fact is that more than half who voted for a President in the election did not vote for Donald Trump even though he won the election fair and square by romping Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College. But I also believe the the majority of people who had voted him in office will regret it sooner than later. This has yet to be proven. The decisons he will make may even upset his supporters even more. Trump scored 290 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232. Only 270 electoral votes were needed to win, so even though Clinton received almost 1 million more popular votes, Donald Trump has won the election and has become ‘president-elect’ of the United States.
Many people woke up on November 9th to see one of their worst nighmares realized. I was one of those people. But I am willing to give the new President a chance to do the right thing and give him the benefit of the doubt. I surely and most likely will not like the majority of his decisions that will be made, but I would like to see if he can earn the respect from people of all parties and govern this country by the will of the people.
