Re: Speculation on what to expect now
I believe Trump entered the race to shake things up and did not anticipate or want to be president. He seemed to want to get out of the race and do what he does best, run businesses.
His efforts to do so failed. I am sure he never expected to gain followers when he made outrageous statements and extreme views.
Trump is a natural at business in an uncanny way, much like people who are good musicians or artist. I don't think he is comfortable in the role he is in now.
I hope his volatility and erratic behavior was an act and that he takes the position of leadership of our great Nation with gravity and care. I hope he redirects his vengefulness at our enemies aboard. When a Russian jet buzzes our ships, there should be a standing order to shoot them down and ask questions later.
We need to stop being nice, there are some nations who respond best to unpredictable, decisive and violent. Unfortunately, that is what it will take to get these piss pot countries to stop messing with the US.
I hope he will take the advice of smart and sensible people who care about the people who voted him in and not old played out politicians with purely political agendas.
One thing that gives me hope is that he does not owe favor's to political cronies. Just maybe he can finally break the chain of patronage that is destroying us. That I would love to see. His presidency could be a blessing in disguise.
He has already broken many conventions to get elected. I think we may finally have someone who has the brass balls to turn government back to being for the people and by the people and not a playground for an insular bunch of politicians.
