“I didn’t think Donald was going to win — and I can’t say I’m upset about it,” Candace Cameron Bure says of Donald J. Trump’s historic win. “I pray that we come together … in humility.”
Whoopi Goldberg says what Trump represents is “not comfortable for me”: “No child should be afraid that their parents are gonna be taken away because they’re Muslim, or because they’re Mexican, or because they’re black.”
With Donald Trump as President, Here’s What Will Happen to the U.S. Economy
Trump was the 2016 election cycle’s most riveting figure. He initially focused his attention on immigration reform, calling for a wall to be built between Mexico and the United States and demanding the deportation of 11 million undocumented immigrants. He has wavered on that last point as of late.
He later rolled out other policies and positions: a major tax code overhaul; repeal and replace Obamacare; renegotiate or “break” NAFTA; stop hedge funds from “getting away with murder” on taxes; reforming the Veteran’s Administration; and impose import tariffs as high as 35%. All while keeping the deficit in check, growing the economy and leaving entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security untouched. Immigration remains a major pillar of his campaign, and he has moved on to the question of Muslim immigration as well. He has laid out a plan to make Mexico pay for the wall, too.
Trump has made plenty of enemies along the way as well, including but limited to fellow GOP contenders Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly, the media in general and even the Pope.
Those who fear Trump’s plans should find common cause with those who love them: “I’m not sure how much of what he actually says today will be his positions a year from now,” said Michael Busler, professor of finance at Stockton University.
Trump’s own campaign has suggested he is playing “a part” to garner votes.
While Trump certainly has some grandiose ideas — and equally lofty rhetoric to accompany them — deciphering the exact nature of his economic policies is a complex task, according to John Hudak, a fellow in governance studies at Washington, D.C.-based think tank the Brookings Institution.
Not to mention the fact that if he does make it to the Oval Office, Trump won’t have a free pass from Congress, even if it remains under the control of the Republican Party (as you’ll see, many of his positions don’t exactly hew closely to GOP policies).
Taking legislative hurdles out of the equation, what will the U.S. economy and markets look like under President Trump.
