In the months since we made the Trump's Wall Poster, my cohort and I had no idea he would ascend this far in the elections. Even two years ago, it would've been "Trump? Yeah, yeah, that talk show guy with the tower and the casino and the university... is he the one who says 'You're fired'?"
All conventional wisdom said he would go the way he did in 2012, just another rich guy with 'ideas'.
But when "Viva la Revolution!" happens, conventional wisdom goes out the window.
The thing is, Mr. Trump himself has yet to do anything that's surprising, it's the people backing him that continually defy expectations. Their loyalty fascinates almost as much as it disturbs.
The Democrats on the other hand, they've been fairly predictable throughout. Was there any doubt it would be Mrs. Clinton? I guess it is kind of surreal thinking that the would-be first female U.S. President will not be considered by any to be the change candidate.
So tell me your thoughts, what specifically do you think Trump intends to change? Unless I'm mistaken, the Wall is now a policy metaphor, not an actual monument to be built. Affordable Health Care, Affirmative Action, certain OSHA protocols, and small business/middle class taxes are gonna be killed. TPP, (which really will stink if put into action) and NAFTA are off the table, despite the benefits he reaped from the latter and could reap from the former, 'cause he's "smart" like that.
What about that 'liberal/Chinese/Mexican/Muslim/environmentalist conspiracy' he keeps alluding to? If it exists, how is he gonna root it out? When will we know it's rooted out? What precautions will be taken to prevent a witch hunt? When is he going to learn the names of terrorist actors? Who are the new generals going to be that are supposed to wipe them out within 30 days, and since when did the Oval Office appoint military officials?
And apparently my state's republican candidates for the gubernatorial election of 2018 are under the impression that Trump is also running to overturn Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v Hodges... somehow?
I would like some kind of assurance that Trump isn't just reading Tweet trends when he comes up with these promises. Would anyone be so kind to help make it all clear for this humble deviant? It would mean the world—and a ballot—to me...
