There are a lot of people in the world who are shocked today. Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America. Some around the globe are saying things like “Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people.” Others are saying nothing but feeling dread when they think about the future.
Donald Trump won the election because he tapped into an anger and frustration throughout America. There are plenty of Americans who don’t feel that the system is working for them. They are tired of career politicians who promise the moon but deliver gridlock. Who count on their vote but don’t give them a second thought at election time. That group is Donald Trumps constituency.
Donald Trump won as a Republican despite the fact that the party elite didn’t support him. He ran on a platform of Republican values and 9 of 10 Republicans ended up voting for him as well as people who usually vote for fringe independent party. The Republican party members of congress will likely support him but if they don’t or if there is still gridlock, Trump can always tap into the rage of his constituency and form a third party and run his own slate for congress. If he did that, it could likely transform America from a two party to a three party system.
Now Trump calls on all Americans to bind the wounds of the past and seek unity. I am sure that many Americans would like to do that but can they leave behind their animosity and do that? When it comes to this new concept of a Trump Presidency, many Americans are hoping for the best but fearing the worst.
At its best, A Trump Presidency could reshape America into a more prosperous nation with full employment and a better life for all. Trump could bring new ideas and new approaches to solving America’s problems which, if tried, might just work.
At its worst, a Trump Presidency could become an economic disaster, stand by as Russia takes over Eastern Europe and the Middle East and China takes back Taiwan and overruns parts of Asia. It could set back advancements against global warming as well as advancements made by every minority group, immigrants and Women’s Rights. You could expect a Supreme Court that would likely repeal Roe Vs Wade and Reverse Gay Marriage. You could see the rise of a law and order police state where minorities continue to be gunned down or a war that drafts our youth.
A Trump America could be a place where pollution is rampant, abortion is illegal, the military industrial complex is reborn, differences aren’t respected or tolerated and hate crimes rise. It could be an America where millions have lost their health care, had their social security cut or pensions diminished or are just plain broke. Most of America will live in apartments because homes will be out of reach for an average American. More people will have jobs but they will not pay enough to afford a house and college will be out of reach for most children.
At both its best and worst, Trumps America will be a great place to be rich.
