The Trump Era (Jan 20, 2017 – XXXX) Political Discussion Including Foreign Impacts
This thread is intended to discuss the upcoming Trump presidency and related matters. Areas of interest include domestic policy, foreign policy, electioneering, cabinet appointments & perspectives, media etc. etc. Additionally, perspectives from other countries, & the impacts on them of the 45th presidency are encouraged here & not discouraged. This is certainly not a thread for Americans only. All are welcome. @DarthDimi
and I thought this would be a good compromise to an issue we were having elsewhere.
The rules are simple. Come and be yourself, have fun, discuss, moan, whine, gripe, post relevant links, conspiracy theories, do whatever you want. I encourage you to express yourself any way you feel comfortable. Kindly just don’t spam with things that are irrelevant to the subject, and please try not to disrespect, judge or be offensive (collectively or individually) to other members’ points of view. I realize politics can be challenging & that Trump is polarizing (he’s very much like a Bond villain to some, I recognize), but in the end we all improve when we hear competing perspectives. Haters can become lovers, I hope.
I don’t expect that this thread will be closed barring some calamity (unlike a prior one which followed the memorable campaign, & which I see as its spiritual predecessor, linked below for those who came late to the party, are interested in politics, and who may be interested in reading it), but rather, that it will continue on with perspectives and opinions during and until the end of the historic Trump presidency.
Bring forth the next four (or eight) years! If anything, they are sure to be highly entertaining. I hope we all get through it!
