When I come across the article, I'll post the link.

Sorry, but by the looks of the way most of his cabinet is shaping up and their ideologies, I do not want them to succeed.
If Trump and Co can get some big projects underway that will benefit the public, then that's what they're supposed to do; act in the public interest.

We'll all know soon enough.

I want him to succeed in removing progressive policies and promoting/implementing constitutional focused polices and people in the system.

If he doesn't do such and starts putting in progressive policies, I don't need to wish him to fail, he will fail.

And yes, I absolutely want the Trump of the last year on the campaign trail to fail. If he moderates his tone and stops demonizing half the population I may change my mind, but I absolutely wish total failure on the man we have been subjected to thus far as I believe his policies will be detrimental to the world. And I believe most of the world population agrees.
I didn't vote for either of those two idiots, but I will remain as optimistic as I can be.

Of course, since the GOP did everything in their power to stifle Obama, we can likely expect the Dems to do the same. Turnabout it fair play after all. So it's quite likely that Trump won't be able to get much done via Congress. Trump's next move is obvious. Obama ruled by executive order and so will Donald Trump.

Doesn't matter which side is using them, I really don't like the overuse of EO's over the last 50 years or so. There should be much clearer boundaries limiting them or they turn into a blank check to do whatever the sitting president wants to do at a stroke of a pen.
