Donald Trump: Elected, Inaugurated and now officially President of the United States of America

Months ago, not only was this blog put on hold, but Donald Trump was seen as an outsider in the race to become the United States new President.

Low and behold on November 8th, he officially defeated the Democrat Party Nominee, Hilary clinton by 306 Electoral votes, to her 232, surpassing beyond the 270 limit needed to win the presidency. He notably won a number of key swing states like Florida, including the historic safe Republican seats such as Texas.

Today, his inauguration has inspired this blog to reinvigorate itself into a more detailed, personal outlook on political stories that will discuss, assess and expand upon recent political news. It will continue to allow readers to expand there views on respective stories also.

But why has this story inspired ThePoliticsView to come back?

If there was ever a political story to discuss on a site like this, that would indeed be this story and the story of Brexit – which if you search for on this site, you will find.

Trump has said that he will ‘make America great again’. A constant slogan used for the masses to relate to. A little like ‘we want our country back’ used from Vote Leave campaigners in the UK wanting an exit from the European Union. It is a short, punchy line that states exactly what people want.

But can Trump really make America great again?

Outgoing Democrat President, Barack Obama has been a heavy critic of Trump, not only because of him being ‘Republican’, but also due to the societal stirs and hate he has spawned over the past several months.

He’s repeatedly been called, or defined as a Xenophobic, Racist, Prejudice, Misogynist, a Dictator and a Narcissist whom believes the Environmental damages we face is a myth ‘created by the Chinese, to make US manufacturing non-competitive’ . In fact, he even tweeted that one (Source).

Now, ThePoliticsView may be giving off a negative output onto Mr Trump here, but he is only to blame for why he’s been negatively portrayed as the man he is. It’s because he is who he is made out to be at the end of the day, and thats hard not to deny after all of the public outbursts and statements Donald Trump has made.

Although he may make America ‘great again’ (which I personally think degrades all of the work Obama has done over the last 8 years to say it wasn’t ‘great’), he faces a lot of social backlash and walls to re-build, not only along the boarder of Mexico, but within the sphere of society and with the people of America that he wishes to ‘bring together’.

Trump is a critic of certain trade agreements too, such as the North Atlantic Trade Organisation (NATO) and trading ties in South America. This is a warning to expect the unexpected under Trump. He is almost if you like, a ‘loose cannon’ who is hard to predict exactly what he want’s to do, or if he’ll do it at all.

One things for sure and that’s time will be very different to the past 8 years under Obama, and things are going to change, be it Trade deals, Immigration, Globalisation norms or Military Agenda’s both in America and Globally.

So, this is where you come into it:

Do you think Donald Trump can ‘make America great again?’

Do you think he’ll keep to his word on hard policies, such as building the great Mexican wall?

Donald Trump has acquired the 1238 Republican Candidacy Delegates

Source: Guardian

Nearly all of the relevant news sources have come out to report that Donald Trump has acquired the delegates needed to become the selected Republican Candidate for US Presidency.

The Guardian have stated that ”thanks to some unpledged delegates boarding the ‘Trump Train’, Donald Trump now has 1,238 delegates – one more than he needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination – and – confetti.”

Furthermore, the ”other republican presidential hopefuls need to win 1,237 delegates to secure the party’s nomination. These include pledged delegates, which are awarded through state primary and caucus votes, and unbound delegates, which consist of party elites who can vote however they choose.

However, trump is miles ahead in terms of delegates with the closest rival being Ted Cruz on 559/1238, however his campaign is currently suspended.

What’s YOUR view of this? 

Now that Trump has enough delegates, surely he will be the chosen one to become the Republican candidate for presidency? Who do you think he will compete against from the Democrats Party for overall presidency, Bernie Sanders or Hilary Clinton? Will Trump make a good president if he is eventually elected?

US election: Why has Trump caught Clinton in the polls?

Source: BBC, realclearpolitics.com, Washington Post, New York Times, YouGov

A bit of US Politics now and this article discusses the extravagant race to become the new president for the USA. The fight has seen a current leading outcome of Hilary Clinton of the Democrats, face off against presumptive Republican candidate Donald Trump in a head to head battle for the presidential ‘prize’.

Of late according to the BBC, we have seen for the first time in this long election campaign, ”Republican Donald Trump pull ahead of Democrat Hillary Clinton in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls.”

The BBC comment further to say, Mrs Clinton’s double-digit lead, which she has held over the past several months,” has vanished – and with it, apparently, Democrats’ dreams of a transformational 2016 victory that would leave Republicans wandering the wilderness for a generation.”

So how has this happened?

  • Trump has growing Republican (and a lot of white citizen) backing:

According to a Washington Post survey, 85% of Republicans plan to vote for their man. A New York Times offering finds a similar number.

”As for the party establishment, most prominent officeholders seem to either be backing Mr Trump or trying their best to disappear into the scenery. Even Senator John McCain, whose war record was belittled by Mr Trump last summer, has said he’ll support the party nominee.”

  • Hilary has Sanders halting her campaign:

A recent Economist/YouGov poll shows that among Sanders supporters, 55% would vote for Mrs Clinton, 15% would back Mr Trump and the rest either don’t know or would pick someone else. It’s not particularly surprising, given that 61% of Sanders backers view Mrs Clinton unfavourably and 72% say she’s “not honest and trustworthy”.

The BBC have stated that ”the exchanges over head-to-head polling are just part of the increased tension within the Democratic Party that could be having a negative effect on Mrs Clinton’s polling numbers.”

  • The Demographical split effect:

The BBC have stated that ”minorities and women are overwhelming supporting Mrs Clinton. Right now that’s being balanced out by whites and men who are backing Mr Trump in large numbers.”

Exactly how big are these gaps? According to the Washington Post poll, ”57% of whites and men support Mr Trump. Mrs Clinton can count on the backing of 69% of non-whites, and leads Mr Trump 52% to 38% among women.”

Among whites without a college degree, ”65% support Mr Trump versus only 25% for Mrs Clinton.”

What’s your view of the US Presidential Race?

What other factors are effecting the race for each candidate? Which campaign do you think is stronger? Who will come out on top in the end?

Anti-Donald Trump Forces Gear Up For Third-Party Challenge

Source: Huffington Post

According to the Huffington post, presumptive US Republican candidate Donald Trump is now going to be challenged by top republication strategists, in a third-party presidential run for the republican spot.

Huffington Post states: ”Top Republican strategists this past week have stepped up a frantic effort to lay the groundwork for a third-party presidential run, even as elected officials within the party begin to make their peace with Donald Trump.”

Furthermore, ”Talk of a third-party run has been percolating for weeks, if not months — the volume of it directly correlated to the likelihood of a Trump victory — with the idea being that such a bid could deny both Trump and Hillary Clinton the 270 electoral college votes needed to win (a real long shot) and/or bring Republican voters disaffected by Trump’s candidacy out to the polls (more feasible)”

What’s your views of the US presidential race? 

Is this too much of a long shot? Will it have any impact on Trumps hopeful path to the presidential election winner? Who do you think will win overall?
