There is nothing to fear if Trump becomes the president.

There is going to be no wall with mexico. Trump is not serious. Businesses and corporations oppose it. They'll just say the Democrats block it. It will be a phony bill at most. Make no mistake. The only people who want that wall are the Unions and working class, and they have been silenced by the Left due to being called racist. The Left is deeply in the pockets too, only more hypocritical than the right.

On other issues, there is plenty of radical rhetoric, but little change will come. The president doesn't have the sole power to advance these agendas. The political process will block it, and Trump or anyone for that matter knows. The same thing goes with Sanders' political agenda, impractical, impossible, and he knows that too.

Regarding foreign policy, much is done collaboratively between the two parties, and with think tanks. There will be rhetorical waves...

It'll be business as usual.

Lol. Cut the welfare off and the Central americans will deport themselves. Enforce existing immigration laws and businesses won't hire the remaining ones.

It looks like the Bots are worried. They should be.

Will someone please tell the ancient Chinese that building a wall several thousand miles long is simply not possible.

You know the Mongols still took over China right? Walls cannot stop demographic change.

Of course it will be business as usual, but there is potential for it to be more fun, this time around.

He will at least secure the border. Let's face it, it is really not that difficult to do.

No need to build any walls, just bring the troops home, all of them. No need to send troops to hell holes to middle east, bring them home and have them secure the border. If putin wants ISIS, let him deal with ISIS. Trump might be the only one who can establish a relationship with the Russians.

Securing the border is actually pretty darn near impossible at any reasonable cost.

Implementing e-verify as mandatory,and enforcing it, and requiring anyone who rents to be a us citizen, or holding a valid passport and visa however would be far easier, effective, and inexpensive.

The wall is the stupidest boondoggle ever suggested.

Nobody claims that he means anything he says.

The rally rhetoric serves to wind up the fanboys. It's just red meat.
