I can predict that he will be unpredictable.December 8, 2016 at 2:25 PM #804349CoronitaParticipant
I predict it will cost me.a heck of lot more to buy a Porsche 911s in a few years.
I predict Fiat will pull out of the U.S.
I also predict clean diesel from VW is dead in North America for the next decade. Too bad.December 8, 2016 at 2:27 PM #804350CoronitaParticipant
Finally, I predict if you want to become famous, post video severely criticizing Trump, then wait for Trump to take the time to tweet about you…kinda like what happened to the Carrier union boss, lol.December 8, 2016 at 2:36 PM #804351livinincaliParticipant
I predict a fairly severe recession that would have happened no matter who was president. I also think he’ll likely be a one term president, but I thought the same thing about both major candidates.December 8, 2016 at 3:50 PM #804352The-ShovelerParticipant
I think just based on demographics and the laws already passed to raise minimum wage 50% in most western states over the next 5-6 years, that the economy will be
(or would be) booming irregardless of who is in office.
Inflation will go up about 20% over that time frame as well IMO.
Most likely who ever is (or would have been in office) will get a free ride out of that.
Anyway IMO, not positive or negative on Trump.December 8, 2016 at 4:09 PM #804353no_such_realityParticipant
Four years of bickering and bitter partisanship followed by a boatload of Department Heads finding out they are relatively powerless to actually affect change as they want within the Government body as everything gets driven to the courts.
Kind of like Congress of Obstruction x2 followed up with Lawsuits of PACs.December 8, 2016 at 4:46 PM #804354spdrunParticipant
Shoveler: yeah. Unemployed youth competing for jerbs that are being automated and priced out of existence, while having their educational opportunities and access to insurance limited by a stingy GOP admin should make for a fun show. Might lead to French type of protests with cities shut down if not more fun.December 8, 2016 at 4:57 PM #804355The-ShovelerParticipant
OK I guess we will need to wait 4 years.December 8, 2016 at 5:20 PM #804356AnonymousGuest
Economy: Hard to predict any specific events as much of his policies will be stimulative in the short term, and payback may not come for four years or more. Could be like the Bush years but there are too many factors to say it will be an identical replay.
Foreign Policy: He has to do “something” about terrorism in order to keep face, and that can only mean boots-on-the-ground operations. Hard to see a way out of this for him without a significant military deployment, especially since the economy may necessitate a distraction.
Immigration: Lots of theatrics and gimmicks. Not much will actually change.
Healthcare: Dumping Obamacare will take much longer than he said it will because he’ll get pushback from Republican congress. Ultimately there will be some half-baked tax credit scheme that will put it back to much the same place as it was in 2008. He’ll declare it fixed and try to manipulate the media into agreeing with him.December 8, 2016 at 7:54 PM #804358scaredyclassicParticipant

Am I missing something? I get that you don’t like Trump – but why the emphasis on obesity? Have you and FlyerInHi joined forces?
