    How do you imagine America will be after Trump will end his presidency? What the effects you expect?

    What are the effects of Trump's presidency on America you imagine after he completes his presidency?

    I see America as a better place to live. I have been closely following President Trump's progress, and I am very pleased on his steps to bring back as well as create jobs. I am very pleased seeing that he is diligently working on making America a safer place to live. I appreciate his transparency, he post a daily itinerary as well as updates on his progress on Facebook. It is clear he is working hard to keep his campaign promises.  I appreciate that he has taken sometimes unpopular stance on immigration, and is making every attempt to make sure our immigration laws are enforced. Our immigration laws have not been enforced for many years, and we are now feeling the problems this lacks enforcement has brought about.  We the taxpayers are footing the bill to educate, care for health care,  housing, as well as incarceration of illegal immigrants.  While our own citizens are forced to live with poor education, poor housing, lack of jobs, and rising health care bills. If President Trump just keeps half of his promises in my opinion America will be a better place to live... We finally have a President that is working hard for all of us. Hopefully more people ill do just a bit of research into what he is doing each and every day. Instead of holding on to all the negative past campaign rhetoric. Let's look to the future. If he fails there will have plenty of time to be negative, and say "I told you so". But if he succeeds, many will end up wearing egg on their faces. Keep in mind he won.

    Remember America at the end of Bush II?  If we are very lucky, it won't be worse than that.  That was bad enough. And the Democrats will be asked to clean up the mess again.  When will we learn?

      I don't understanding your negative view? I must ask you what are the bases for such a negative opinion. Please rely on facts,I don't buy into innuendoes. It appears to me he is working hard to bring about needed changes. He walk into a mess.

      Sharon:  Can you give examples of the mess Trump walked into compared to how Bush left our economy on the brink of collapse, our country seven years into fighting a two-front war with no end in sight, and millions with no health insurance?

      Collapsing Obamacare; 11 million illegal immigrants draining our tax dollars; unfair NAFTA practices; a decrepit infrastructure; Military miss spending/poor healthcare; nuclear proliferation N. Korea, Iran, and Russia. ISIS undefeated.

      Obamacare driving down health insurance costs to slowest rate on record. Illegal immigrants filling slave labor jobs to keep your prices low. Decrepit infrastructure to pay for Bush wars and tax cuts. Skyrocketing employment and stock market.

    Assuming 'Globalization' in all its tenets is inevitable (and I believe it is) my opinion (and it is ONLY opinion) is that the Trump Administration will set back, i.e. slow down the process, considerably.   The great nation state is on the way out but Donald Trump does not appear to realize it.    As do a lot of other powerful states as well, so he's not alone in this.

    We live in a finite globe - our planet.   The All Mighty is NOT making its landmass any bigger.   Our human population is already the BIG problem on Planet Earth.  There are already just too many of us.

    Hate to say it, but Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' with a world population limited to around 2 billion people (rather than the 7 going on 8 we presently have) with a world government in charge, is the only way we're going to sustain ourselves in the long term.

    The alternative?   Huge technological advances and a successful migration to other planets throughout the universe.

    I really can see in eight years that a democrat will be elected.  It has been a trend laely--first Clinton then Bush then Obama and now Trump.  I still see America going in the right direction

    I actually believe the effects have already started.  I think he will destabilize the US; create adversarial relationships with allies; destroy public confidence in the media; increase the racial divide; and increase the deficit.  I cannot imagine what good can come from him as President.

      My question was to you to defend your opinion as why you feel President Trumps will need cleaning up ? It's apparent you are pivoting. My opinion Of the Obama's 8 years is that he was a do nothing president, and did leave the country in a mess.

    Let me start by saying that I hope President Trump is successful at bringing jobs back to America.

    I think Trump has to hone his skills dealing with Congress. He learned via the healthcare bill that intimidation and threats are not effective when used against Congress members who are voting in accordance with the desires of their constituents.

      I appreciate your comment. It seems many here have negative comments. However, not one actual example of anything he has done to make them come to their conclusion? Not sure how all he is accomplishing to benefit us is going unnoticed? A bit scary...

      One example - he signed an executive order rolling back extremely important climate change efforts. Burn more coal...Make America great again.

      Another example - Making it acceptable to fill our creeks, streams, and rivers with pollution.

    With as much damage he is going to do internally to our country, the damage with the outside world will be irreparable.

    Burning bridges, cutting ties, insulting other global leaders - we need our allies as much as they need us. Offending them intentionally can only be likened to biting the hand that feeds you.

    There comes a point in time when if you decided to run for president and actually won, it's time to stop the childish, immature temper tantrums, the teen like tweets, threats and rants, and actually make a viable attempt at doing the job you fought for over the last year.

    Denying climate change and rolling back the environmental bill will destroy this country single-handedly. Our air will look like China's, our rivers, lakes, & streams will be over-polluted and unusable. Then throw in the DAPL. Another disaster waiting to happen.

    I try to look at it as an outsider, but all I could see was an entire administration doing everything in their power to gut everything we had going for us.

    I've long studied our environment, global warming, climate change, & pollution, there is not one thing good going to come to this country with these executive order rollbacks. Clean coal? What the hell is that? Clean coal doesn't exist.

    I am going to be quite impartial in my analysis of the situation at hand.  There are some Americans who view the Trump presidency as a dawning of a new age in America.  They strongly aver that America is going to be better culturally, morally, & especially socioconomically as a result of President Trump businesslike, no-nonsense approach to many key issues which are plaguing America such as the immigration issue & constructing livable wage jobs for the middle class.  These Americans contend that Trump is going to return America to its basic core, democratic values.

    Then there are other Americans who view the Trump presidency as akin to the rise of Hitler in Germany.  They maintain that racism will become more overt than ever under the Trump presidency.  They are citing more vicious attacks on Blacks, Latinos,  & Asians.  They are remarking that Muslims will be targeted as never before.  There are some Black pundits who believe that Trump will institute Nazi-style racism towards Blacks particularly. 
    There are women who view the Trump presidency as ten steps backwards in terms of women's rights, especially reproductive rights.  There are Americans who believe that Trump will take America into a hellish abyss from which it will take awhile to recover.
