      Four years is a short time period? That's two entire election cycles.

          I edited my post before I saw this, but yes, in a country with a 240 year history, 4 years is a very short time period.

            If this website is legitimate, it is brilliant. A concrete way to start to deliver on the promises of his acceptance speech, right away.

              It is really a sad commentary on our times that the people who were most vocal in insisting that everyone accept the results of the election are now the same people out rioting because they don't like the results of the election.

                        This divisive rhetoric after the election is going a bit overboard....

                        "Trump to evict black family from public housing in January." The word "evict" is a bit misleading. :facepalm:

                          This one's gonna be different.

                          On foreign policy Trump will not be getting us into wars, at least intentionally. His foreign policy will be something halfway between a protection racket and pulling down his pants and comparing dick size.

                          On domestic policy, Trump will be Dubya cubed. Get ready for massive tax cuts for the rich, shredding civil rights and civil liberties, and the rest of the government and the country falling into ruin.

                            Four years is longer than the duration of American involvement in WW2.

                            It's approximately a tenth of how long it will it will take the US to fully recover from Dubya.

                            But he had 8, so maybe with Trump it will only take 20 years.

                            Hope.

                              On domestic policy, [I haven't really paid any attention to actual proposals, I'm just displaying my knee-jerk prejudice]
                              For example,

                              Mr. Trump proposed a new benefit [as an alternative to an increase in the minimum wage]: allowing families to deduct child-care expenses on their income taxes. For a single-parent household with no income-tax liability—the families that Democrats target with their minimum-wage message—this [proposal alone] wouldn’t do much good. So Mr. Trump offered an alternative: an expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to offset child-care expenses.
                              ....
                              To be eligible for the EITC a person must hold a job and earn income. The size of the annual payment depends not on tax liability, but on how much the employee earns and how many children he or she has. Payments phase out gradually as income rises, to avoid the counterproductive “cliff” effect that characterizes other social-welfare programs.

                              Economists have found much to like about the policy: A 2008 study, ..., found that when the [EITC] credit has been expanded in the past, employment of single mothers rose. So did their wages. Mr. Trump would build on this success by further expanding the credit to help cover eligible child-care expenses. ...

                              Because it boosts pay through the tax code rather than a mandate on employers, the EITC is a pro-work alternative to raising the minimum wage. Consider the math in Pennsylvania, where Mr. Trump delivered his speech: The state’s minimum wage is $7.25, or $15,080 a year. For a single parent with two children who is working full time, the federal EITC would be roughly $5,550. In other words, it increases this parent’s gross pay by a third. This creates an effective hourly wage (before other safety-net benefits are included) of $9.92 an hour.

                              Mr. Trump would add up to $575 to this transfer payment, calculated as half of the $1,150 that the employee had deducted in payroll taxes. This would bump the effective hourly pay up to $10.19 an hour. That’s similar to the current minimum wage in deep-blue states like Massachusetts ($10) and Connecticut ($9.60). It’s also consistent with the $10.10 figure that President Obama championed as recently as 2014.
                              This one is Ivanka's idea, and so it likely has a good chance of being implemented. Congress also would like it.
