Yep but don't think he'll see 4 years out for any number of reasons.

He will find out two thins very quickly. Firstly, dealing with world leaders isnt the same as appeasing a partisan crowd at a Trump rally. Secondly, he will find many of his crowd pleasing pledges cant easily be turned into policy.

I also suspect he will find two terms difficult, ongoing inquiries into his activities. Plus failure to carry out his policies will turn the public against him.

The notion a World Trade war will work in Trumps favour without hurting the American economy is laughable. As is the idea of forcing Mexico to pay for the wall, already downgraded to a fence.

He signed some nonsense about Obamacare as his first piece of legislation but what the hell will he replace it with that is universally popular.

I wonder, if in years to come, parallels will be drawn between

Reagan/Thatcher

and

Trump/May

Tory and Tory - both know the value of money.

He's put Winston's bust back in the Oval office for goodness sake.

I suspect there will be and it will be good.

Just my opinion.

You heard it here first.

Trump will create jobs for the ground root people by creating big infrastructure projects like dams.

Just like Roosevelt did.

Mark my words.

He won't be isolationionist like teddy was but will grasp the business side of it.

What a horrible evil little man he is, we have 2 mad men in charge of countries that have nuclear capabilities, it's a bizarre state of affairs when we have a president just as unhinged as Kim Jung Un and actually has been congratulated for taking the moral high ground by not responding to Trump's threats.

We have a man who calls himself the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and he is the leader that has the moral high ground to a man who believes it's ok to "grab a woman by the pussy" and reluctantly condemns his friend David Duke's former organization the Klu Klux Klan.

The world really is a f'd up place...

At least he has sacked Bannon. Although Bannon and Trump still share a basic ideology, namely racism.

I've been telling you guys for years.

The white trash in the southern United states have been and always will be racist against black people. The rise in muslim terror attacks just fuels their 'cause'

End of.

I'm surprised by your comments here John.

Are you too young to remember the Bay of Pigs (Cuba 1962)?

Kennedy basically used just such language as Trump is using to tell the Russians to piss off or all hell will break loose.

Yeah, but Kennedy was a politician and a clever one. He also negotiated with Kruschev (using his brother Robert and a top Soviet to meet) where they agreed a deal with Russia for them to take their missiles out of Cuba, while they took their Warheads from countries neighbouring Russia avoiding nuclear war without losing face. Trump has surrounded himself with right-wing unhinged maniacs he being the most unhinged, I would trust Kim Jung Un before I would ever trust Trump.
