What Will Really Happen If Donald Trump Is Elected President
The polls are tight in the Republican presidential primary race between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. This is no doubt one of the most interesting elections to date, and Trump is promising all sorts of changes if he gets the hot seat.
Opinions are still mixed on that outcome. Other politicians like Mitt Romney have spoken out about Donald Trump and what will happen if he’s elected, but thousands remain loyal to Trump’s campaign. It’s still up in the air if he’ll really receive the nomination or not.
Since Trump is calling for some of the most radical changes in American history, it’s important not to ignore some of his key ideas for policy changes and how that will affect our nation. Let’s look at some of the things that will probably happen if Donald J. Trump is elected president.
The Economy Will Probably Improve
If there’s one thing Donald Trump has going for him, it’s his plan for the economy. He’s a businessman, after all, and he’s not bad at what he does. Some of the finer points of his plan to improve the economy include a reduced-rate tax plan that will lessen the tax burden on everyday citizens and encourage major corporations to bring more money into the United States Treasury.
He’s also determined to bring more jobs to United States soil by limiting outsourcing to Japan, China, and Mexico. He’s been a big supporter of the American economy so far, and he understands many of the ins and outs of business that could help the government in legislation.
There is reason to call in the questions of Trump’s four bankruptcies in the discussion about Trump’s plan for the economy. He’s made a lot of money after gaining his inheritance, but he did manage to go bankrupt four times in his career. However, Trump argues that these issues make him more qualified to run the country, not worse. He stated in the most recent debate: “I came out great, but I guess I'm supposed to come out great. That's what I'm supposed to do for the country. We owe $19 trillion. Boy, am I good at solving debt problems. Nobody can solve it like me."
The economy is already moving upward after the financial crisis of 2008, and Donald Trump may be able to ride that wave to increase the greatness of the economy.
Another policy that will likely make its way to the forefront of his presidency is his determination to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Unlike his Democratic constituents, he doesn’t plan to make big changes to enact free healthcare or to change the way we currently run Medicare and Social Security. As we’ve seen from countries like Canada and Sweden where welfare aid is abundant and healthcare is free, this is probably a good plan.
He has actively opposed socialist healthcare under the belief that it will cause our excellent healthcare system to lose its reputation and ultimately fail. He believes that a free-market oriented plan will work better to break up the insurance company monopolies and improve the prices of drugs and treatment.
He has also widely advocated that the Affordable Care Act could be the thing that takes down our nation. It’s costing the government trillions, and raising taxes on the middle class. It’s also taking away certain inalienable rights outlined in the Constitution, since it forces people to either pay a tax or purchase healthcare.
Instead of the current plan, Trump will likely propose one that will give the choice back to the buyer while still making health insurances and care more affordable. He’ll do so by targeting the health company monopolies rather than the individual.
He’ll Probably Offend Some Really Important People
If he’s elected, Donald Trump will likely do some good things to our economy. But it’s not going to be a pretty picture, and we can safely argue that there are many, many things more important than money. He might make some much-needed changes to our current system, but at what cost? Could his actions and unchecked words actually send us to war?
He’s made jabs at the Pope, alienating the 60 million Catholic people in the country, not to mention making enemies of the millions of other members of Christian religions in the United States. The fact that he would attack a world leader of the Pope’s caliber is a little frightening.
But what’s perhaps most disturbing of all is Trump’s poor relations with the media. It’s true that most presidents don’t love the media, but for the good of the nation and its people, they keep a civil tongue. He’s cast a personal vendetta between himself and Fox News’s Megyn Kelly, which has transpired into some pretty bad media for the Republican contender. It’s true the that media is always after its political candidates, but the more Trump criticizes them, the more he’ll cause a stir that will affect the turn of the media’s gaze. The media often controls the level of panic or calm in a nation, and having the president at total odds with the media might turn out to be catastrophic when matters of state are at hand.
All in all, there’s not any clear projection that can reveal the outcome if Donald Trump is elected president. Right now, the crystal ball is pretty muddy on that one, but there’s no doubt, based on Trump’s past behavior as both a businessman and a political candidate, that it will be a rocky road. There will be its benefits, but will the cons outweigh them?
