He's not president yet.

I bet one of his (many) illegal acts will trip him up before January when he takes office.

Son-in-law Kushner, daughter Ivanka are both Jewish and have been touted to have roles in the admin. Other Jewish appointees that jump immediately to mind include Steven Mnuchin and David Friedman. FWIW.

Obama has been soft on terrorism and even avoids using certain terms to avoid offending people. Thank God he is leaving. We need a president that has balls. He gives great speeches, but that's about all he is good for.

It's all but a sealed deal. Even if Electoral College doesn't go Trump's way (which is unlikely since he only needs 270 Electoral votes (he won convincingly over Hillary with 303 Electoral votes to Clinton's 235)), the Republicans control Congress.

Would be political suicide. Not even Trump is that stupid.


Those rural working class who voted for him would suffer most from it.
But on second thought, Trump voters are so unbelievably stupid they will support him even as he guts the very programs and regulations meant to protect them and allow them social mobility so long as the cuts are couched in a constant stream of being anti liberal, or giving the shaft to this or that minority group.

Yeah I know who cares about the mess they left him with after the Bush admins the last 8 years... he has done nothing according to FOX news, than you wonder why we take what Trump supporters say with a grain of salt..

I didn't care for Bush either. We've had 16 years of horrendous policies all around. Oddly enough the last decent president we had was Bill Clinton.

Yeah, a typical Democrat stirring the pot. Listen, the Republicans and the Democrats suck. The sooner you get that, the better we'll be. Americans voted for Trump because they're sick of the same crap year in and year out. Lots of talk and no action. We need a president who puts America first. Pathetic trade deals ushered in under Clinton. Wars that we should've never have been in. Yes Bush was horrendous, but let's not act like Obama was a messiah. He's created jobs, but plenty of low paying ones. That is nothing to be proud of. He's stood back and watched us be raped by trade deals that continue to ship good paying jobs overseas and we've been involved with far too many overseas issues. That money could be better spent here fixing our infrastructure or improving our schools.
