1) Nothing will happen to Trump. He will not be arrested, investigated, etc. He'll right back to where he was before he got elected...moving and shaking in the NYC business/political world, greasing palms, getting paid, etc. He's a cash cow, and both parties like the milk. So stop with the juvenile "he's toast" nonsense. Both Clintons are more verifiably guilty of more crimes than Trump, and nobody cares. If Hillary hasn't been indicted for anything, Trump will never come close.

2) If the next President is a Democrat, everything bad that happens during their term will be Trump's fault, and everything good will be their credit. If the next President is Republican, everything bad will be a combo of their fault and Trump's, and everything good will be because the Dems in the House and/or Senate are doing their best to make sure the bad Republican cannot hurt you.

3) At some point, taxes will go up, regardless of which party takes the White House, since the media has everyone convinced we have a revenue problem versus a spending problem.

4) The entitlement state, national debt and dependency rolls will grow, regardless of which party takes control.

5) Social media will continue to fracture and divide the population.

nothing, nothing at all. So many people cried that Obama was destroying the country and opposed everything he did. Now he is rarely spoken of. The same with Bush, Cheney and that crowd. Every once in a while someone mentions them and that's it. And remember how much Cheney was hated. The whole thing reminds me of a cousin growing up. When she broke up with a boy it was earth shattering never ending world ending diatribe about them. Until the next guy came along and the process repeated itself. Then when she broke up with him it was earth shattering never ending.....you get the point.

I tend to agree, although I think a lot of it will depend on who is elected next. Trump did stop Obama's America in Retreat initiative. Whether POTUS 46 resumes it depends on a lot of things.
The Wall will help; conservative justices will help, too.

We will all have to explain to future generations how this country elected a lying, corrupt Russian puppet who pays off porn stars with campaign finances, welcomed an attack on our elections, uses Twitter as a bully pit and locks kids in cages while inviting the Taliban to Camp David.

Nothing will happen to Trump but the left will continue to obsess over him and continue to throw crap at the wall hoping something will stick. The left will fail, as they do with every attempt they make. Under no circumstances, ever, will any American president ever go to prison.

The next president won't be able to pardon him because the charges will be brought by the southern district of NY.
LOL. You have no idea what the "southern district of NY" is.

I think when Trump loses in 2020, it will unite our country in a way we haven't seen since 9/11.

Most democrats (from far-left libs to moderates), independents, and moderate and educated republicans will embrace a more centered approach to politics.

Only the far right conservative nutjobs will refuse to join the rest of America in uniting and attempting to fix the mess that Trump leaves behind.

I hope whichever democrat beats Trump next November concentrates on unifying Americans and not using divisive tactics and attack people and insult women and minorities the way Trump has. I hope the democrats can bring decency back to the Oval Office after Trump's tainted it with his orange stench.

This is the correct answer.

Next he will be investigated / arrested for his past crimes during his last four years in the White House. You can't openly attack the FBI and other government agencies and not expect them to retaliate in the future. Now if he had friends in congress, he would enjoy some protection from powerful political allies, but the reality he has few, if any friends. The republicans tolerate him because he's the President, when he's not the president anymore, he's toast. After all he hasn't exactly played nice with other politicians, he's used them as tools with threats and bullying to get what he wanted done and toss them aside like a child's toy he's no longer interested in.

So be it high treason or funneling government dollars to one of his many hotels for self enrichment, Trumps going to prison for something. After all $900 a night for a room is beyond outrageous, having travelled for the government, Per diem is at best $200 a night for a room in an expensive city.

If he is out in 2020, there is a reasonable chance like you mention that he will be investigated, and possibly arrested or at least indicted.

If he is in until 2024 it is less likely because he will have had 4 additional years to tear down our system of justice, and to carve out a safe spot for him to land. Given another 4 years, we will begin to look a lot more like a banana republic and a lot less like a nation of laws. Although If he is in until 2024 his cognitive impairment will surely be complete and it is a question whether he would be able to complete that term of office.
