What Will You Do If Trump Wins The Presidency?

Sat Jun 04, 2016 7:54 am

Lots of naysayers here, but throwing this out there - what will you do if Donald Trump becomes the 45th President of the United States?

And note - this is not about his chances; he certainly faces an uphill battle, but saying he has zero chance of winning is not realistic.

So to those who cringe at the thought of President-elect Donald J. Trump, what will you do if he wins?

I most certainly cringe at the thought of a President Trump, but cringe a whole lot more at the thought of a President Sanders or President Clinton. Did it suddenly get cold in here?

But, to answer your question:

Not too much. I will watch for the inevitable executive orders that he will issue to circumvent the will of The People as expressed through The Congress and write my letters (emails) and occasionally get on my virtual soapbox. I will point out to my daughter, who will be old enough to vote during the next cycle, though not during the primaries, how important it is to pay attention.

I'll also be looking forward to seeing all the jack-asses that said they would leave the country, not leave the country.

I am going to sit back and celebrate with a bottle of fine wine or champagne. Donald Trump is committed to helping the US rebuild its infrastructure like Amtrak and the old 1960s third-world airport terminals. Trump wants Japan and South Korea to start paying for 100% of their defense costs. Trump is right, Laguardia is a joke. The Americans need to worry about America first and then everyone else second.

Realistically:
Continue on my career path as normal, but hope that in 4 years the irrational part of the Republican Party is dead. Note that I'm not saying the whole Republican Party, but just the part that is irrational, hypocritical, and says no to any compromise. And hopefully sooner or later America makes some major political improvements so that people like Donald Trump aren't taken seriously, 3rd parties have a better chance of being involved, and our vote actually matters.

Likely continue on my digital soapbox here and other sites bashing him. Like many I will support my local congress member and US Senators to do whatever it takes to prevent a President Trump (shudder!) from being able to do serious damage. What I do fear, especially if Democrats take over the Senate, is even more gridlock in our government, none of his cabinet appointments approved except after huge battles, as well as over spending, taxation, government regulation and so on.

I will enjoy watching the leftist radicals and hippies riot. Nothing like showing you are for peace and tolerance by being violent and intolerant.

I will watch how the relationship between Mexico and the US crumbles to dust, as the WALL CONCEPT is ENFORCED, with MEXICO PAYING FOR IT. Hello 70s!

I will get my popcorn and see how North Korea gleefully nukes Seoul, Tokyo and Anchorage to ashes.

It will be equally sad, to see how Putin, redraws the Iron Curtain all the way to Poland.

It will be interesting to see how a Global Economic Depression will come to fruition, one that would make the Great Depression of the 1930s seem like a mild cycle correction, once the US defaults on its debt (to get better terms) NAFTA, the TPP and other myriad free trade arrangements are ripped apart.

Sadly but instructively, I will watch how the entire Judicial System becomes one the likes of which only Apartheid countries have developed.

More popcorn, to see how the media becomes the source of all evils, and how journalists, anchors and MEDIA CONGLOMERATES start to be harassed.

I will see with interest, how the Middle East becomes a conflagration, with thousands of American troops re-sent there but to a quagmire that make the Afghan and Iraq wars look like week end paint ball matches.

Other than the above, I´ll keep on with my life. Knowing it will be a much different world, but hey, change is permanent.

Putin is not aggressive. He is just a realist. Putin will not allow Ukraine or Georgia to become part of NATO as that would be a direct threat to Russia. It is NATO who is being aggressive by trying to encircle Russia, which is why Putin is in the process of wrecking Ukraine.

There's not much I can do either. I don't have the resources to move to another country, I live in a uber-blue state, in a blue district so my vote is already anti-Trump. The only downside is living in redneck country where banners of Trump adorn the streets. I'm concerned about him becoming the winner and his supporters feeling encouraged enough to profile people and take action unilaterally.

I am Hispanic and look Middle Eastern. I won't be surprised if someone called me out for being a threat to them or even took out a gun and claimed self defense. And if you think I'm exaggerating, let's not forget that last year, Trump becoming the nominee was a farfetched idea.

That was pretty much the attitude among large parts of the German electorate in 1933. "Yeah sure the guy is an idiot, and it'd be disastrous if he does what he claims he will, but let's not exaggerate. If he's elected, he'll be contained by other politicians, the parliament and the courts. This too shall pass. Besides, I'm neither Jewish nor a foreigner nor gay nor handicapped, so what do I have to fear?"

This is not to equate Trump with Hitler, but the idea that it basically doesn't matter who's elected proved sometimes fatal in the past. The truth is that you don't know what will happen. Perhaps Trump will be nothing more than four weird years of presidential Twitter feuds and questionable decor in the White House, but perhaps not. Impossible to tell.

Not really much of anything. Regardless of who is president, you still have all of the career politicians in congress who are going to continue block/allow whatever agenda that they want to. The president only has so much power, and most of Congress hates Trump anyways.

I really look at the Ukrainians that I know as what American's were perhaps a generation or two ago. Big families, strong in their faith, hard working, reasonable, skilled, easy-going, healthy people. Not looking for a handout, abandoning their husbands/wives, being self-centered, peeing on crosses, or whatever else goes on in America these days.

Pray.

And laugh at all the doomsday folks who thing the country/ world will fall apart. Trump wouldn't be our worst president.

He will have a very rude awakening at how limited his power will be in the White House.

He thinks it is unfair for judges to release public records in lawsuits against him now, wait until he gets a load at all the information which will be released about his income, his past court cases, etc.

Frankly, given his past, I'd expect him to decide to not run for re-election.

I don't care if he wins. He is an idea generator. At least some of his ideas are good. Some of that will stick.

Trump is already legitimizing the idea that the corrupt Political Establishment is not impenetrable. This is still a popular democracy. The people can still rule.

He is also legitimizing the idea (on the right -- and this should thoroughly embarrass the left!) that the average, 50th percentile American deserves to be heard. Not drowned out by the bellows of either bullies on the right, or the left.

Like or dislike Trump, he is not just a mere windbag. Nor is he a stooge appointed by the Establishment. Instead, he was nominated directly by millions of voters to speak for them. To those who fling their excrement at him, you are flinging it at the notion of average people deserving the vote.

Most people I know openly say that lower class people should be prevented from voting anymore, at any cost. That democracy must be stopped, before the common people take over our pan-national system, and the elites might even lose some of their money, or have to follow laws.

Doubtful. He is a negotiator. Right now he is working the deal for the presidency. If he thought what he was doing would blow up in his face or otherwise jeopardize "closing the deal", he'd change it up. That's not to advocate for him, but rather to just say I doubt it will be as bad as it looks right now.

This is what scares me about Trump. Someone says something about him he does not like or agrees with and Trump goes on the attack with insults and name calling.

With behavior like that, it's almost as if he's campaigning for office or something...

Putin will not allow Ukraine or Georgia to become part of NATO as that would be a direct threat to Russia.

Absolute baloney. Georgians and Ukrainians have the right to self-determination. If they want to join NATO then that is up to them and is no business of Russia. As it stands, the main reason they do want to join NATO is so that they can pursue a pro-EU agenda and avoid getting bullied into becoming a cesspool like Putin's Russia.

It is NATO who is being aggressive by trying to encircle Russia

   NATO isn't the one trying to invade Ukraine.

I will shake my head and once again marvel at the stupidity of the US Electorate who would vote once again for someone who is wealthy, who will coddle Wall Street and the Banks. I will listen once again to all the bull dinky about how much will be done for the downtrodden middleclass and all the while knowing nothing will change. The system will remain corrupted by special interests. The worker will continue to get screwed over, jobs will continue to be shipped out of the US.

An Ultra Conservative will be nominated for the USSC. Racial and Religious hatred will continue to fester. Medical costs will continue to climb with nobody able to say why. An attempt to kill Obama Care will be attempted with nothing to replace it. Pensions will decline, income will decline for the serf class. Union jobs will be the first to go overseas as has happened for the last thirty years. Welfare rolls will rise while the Republicans scream about all the bums out there.

The NRA and gun ownership will rise dramatically. I will sit back and scratch my head and fear for my family and grandchildren. I will be glad I lived in a better age. I will still say God Bless America and hope he does. I will also pray that congress will fall to the Democrats so we can at least have a chance at a normal life for average people who were once part of a thriving middleclass.

So you don't want Trump OR Hillary. I can agree with that.

Nothing seems to stop it.

Trump seems at least interested in something akin to the ACA, though I'm not clear on what and don't really care at this point.

Has been happening for the past two terms of Obama. Likely won't change.

I tend to agree that anytime one party is in total control, things go south despite we hope from our chosen ones.

Trump raised some valid points, but I do not think he will follow through on them. I cannot stand Hillary who needs to be forced into anything that will help the people in my opinion. I support Bernie. He points to the real Villain's, politicians, banks, Wall Street and the wealthy class along with the greed of corporations.


The gist of what I said is that nothing will change no matter who gets in. The system is corrupt.

If Trump wins, I'll probably sell all my stock.

I'm not so sure. I think it's more likely Trump will name one of his children to the Supreme Court.

I never thought of that one. Quite Possible from what I have read about nominee's qualifications.

Certainly not, but let's not pretend Washington would benevolently look on a Russian-dominated military alliance that included Canada and Mexico as members.

Not that it means I believe Putin is an honorable leader, far from it, but one should refrain from poking an already angry and unstable bear.

Quoting Flighty (Reply 36):
The people can still rule.

The people have always been able to rule but they could not be bothered to look beyond the headlines and seriously consider their options and all candidates, especially at the primary level. The people have had the government (broadly defined) they deserve for years. Not voting is, for most at least, a choice the people need to assume rather than whine.

Then again, there is nothing honorable about answering the call of a xenophobic, misogynist, self-centered, demagogue. Maybe the people, or the Trump people at least, should not be voting, ever.

I'd love to see how many Trump supporters or Americans would actually know what a real "leftie" is.

Try living somewhere where your most conservative political party is still left of the Democrats..
