Donald Trump and US politics

Well, since the other thread got egged by "AntiFa", shall we continue the debate here?

The last word was a dilemma about if Donald Trump is the usual evil capitalist (top hat + monocle) in clever disguise and bought by special interests, or is he genuinely interested in economic changes that will benefit workers and middle class? Will he be influenced by the usual lobbyists or since he's already very rich, be more resistant to corruption?

I myself have some hopes for the better.

i think trumph's philosophy of "bringing back production to the us" is a fair move.

every dollar floating around in the world as well as government bonds held by other states are a claim of foreigners towards america to deliver some goods to be paid with these dollars.

it's about time, america starts producing something other than stuff that kills or helps repressing people to repay it's debt towards the world.

I am grateful to the OP of the "other thread" for having had it closed. I had promised him that I wouldn't post in his thread, anymore, and could only watch and read. Now, there is a Trump thread in which I may freely participate.

As for the question, it sure seems as if, whatever President Trump's motives, he's hell-bent on fulfilling as many of his campaign promises as he can, even if not in the ways he had originally envisioned. He's busting tail getting a LOT done (more in the first week than most POTI do in their first several months), and it's already beginning to look like the "even if he doesn't accomplish anything else" line will be crossed by the end of this year. =^[.]^=

There are 50K homeless just in LA http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-count-20170127-story.html

And libs are fighting to let more in, spending millions for wall street lawyers to keep sanctuary and welcome in more impoverished instead of taking care of their own. LA actually every liberal city in America is a unsafe dystopian nightmare of their making. They are so detached from reality and still don't understand how popular Trump is in the rest of the nation.


Your nation will have a reckoning like this as well. See when you give away free shit you get free loaders until system is overwhelmed and life becomes untenable for people who actually pay for it. AFD maybe small now but so was Trump at one time.
Git R Dun!
