16 Deplorable Things To Expect From Trump’s First 100 Days

Share
Confident Trump's first 100 days

America’s system of political checks and balances may vanish in the first 100 days of a Donald Trump presidency and Republican-run Congress. Facing no restraints other than protests they can ignore, Republicans driven by far right-wing ideologies, partisan score-settling and fealty to corporate America may seek to erase all traces of the Obama years and reset the political and judicial stage for years to come.

It’s not just Trump’s draconian campaign pledges that stand to be initiated or imposed. House tea partiers who have been obstructing and investigating the Obama administration for years and Senate Republican leaders who put their party’s interests before the nation by blocking jobs bills, infrastructure bills and Supreme Court nominees, now feel vindicated.

Let’s go through 16 worst-case scenarios that could mark Trump’s first 100 days.

1. Special prosecutor targets Hillary Clinton. This goes beyond the chants of “lock her up” at Trump rallies. During the debates, Trump said that Hillary Clinton deserved to be in jail, and many House Republicans were fuming that the FBI announced her use of a private email server didn’t warrant a Justice Department prosecution. The House, and the U.S. attorney general, both have the power to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate any government officials for misconduct in office. Will they?

2. Scalia clone to Supreme Court. Right after Trump is sworn in, you can expect him to name a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, the Court’s most activist right-winger, who died last February. The Senate will confirm that choice quickly, ignoring Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. Other justices—two are now in their 80s—may retire, allowing Trump to create a new right-wing majority for decades to come.

3. Scuttle international treaties. Trump said he would repeal and renegotiate trade pacts, withdraw from the Paris climate change accord and cancel the nuclear weapons agreement with Iran. It remains to be seen which of those come first, but some symbolic or substantive action is likely, even if it imposes new import tariffs. Whether that sparks a trade war that raises consumer prices is not going to be a consideration.

4. Climate change denial actions. Beyond pulling out of the Paris accords, Trump could repeal President Obama’s executive orders to cut carbon pollution, start the process of repealing EPA air quality standards and cut subsidies for solar power and alternative energy generation. He’s also likely to fast-track approval of the Keystone XL pipeline and try to revive coal mines.

5. Roll the clock back on abortion. This goes beyond appointing anti-choice justices to the Supreme Court. The Republican Party platform includes Congress proposing and sending to the states a federal constitutional amendment to outlaw abortion rights. Congress will eliminate any subsidies for Planned Parenthood and may resurrect restrictions on supporting family planning abroad, and also may impose new sex education requirements for public schools.

6. Sign a law repealing Obamacare. The Republican contempt for all-things-Obama may result in repealing major sections of a law that’s brought health coverage, however imperfect, to more than 17 million people. (The entire law can’t be repealed because the GOP doesn’t have a 60-seat Senate majority.) Trump will be under tremendous partisan pressure to sign it, even if the GOP has no Plan B. This may spark the first big backlash he’ll face as president.

7. Repeal Obama’s immigration orders. Trump could revoke Obama’s executive orders on immigration, which suspended deportation of 4 million undocumented parents of children who are U.S. citizens because they were born here. That may be the start of what could become an unprecedented mass arrest, incarceration and deportation treadmill promised in the campaign.

8. Start building a Mexico border wall. The call for a border wall and deporting millions were two of Trump’s most infamous rallying cries. In his brief victory speech, Trump said he wants to start with a big infrastructure package that could include the wall.

9. Normalize bullying and hate crimes. Over the course of the campaign, there has been a precipitous rise in hate crimes against people of color and other minority groups. We have seen an increase in the number of hate groups in recent years, and with Trump’s stoking of white racial resentments during the campaign, we may now see those numbers grow.

10. Repeal other Obama executive orders. The Republican Party platform calls for repealing executive branch policies that enforce voting rights, healthcare programs, land-use decisions, education curricula, and school restroom policies (for trans people). Trump is also likely to repeal federal policies expanding family leave, labor rights, overtime pay, etc. The GOP has said it will draft orders rescinding all policies that are not enumerated under the Constitution.

11. Pre-empt the pot laws passed by states. Trump’s promise to restore “law and order” may begin by pleasing the FBI and cracking down on states where voters have legalized marijuana. Other attempts to address racism in the justice system or prison sentencing policies or broader criminal justice policy reform may be scuttled, as Trump says police can do no wrong.

12. Loosen gun controls nationwide. Trump and the GOP platform want to expand gun rights. The platform calls for carrying a concealed weapon to be legal in all 50 states, and opposes state laws restricting military-style assault rifles and limiting the size of ammunition-carrying magazines. Trump campaigned saying he would allow guns in playgrounds and schools, and he supports the National Rifle Association’s idea of arming and training teachers and hiring more gun-carrying guards for schools.

13. Roll back consumer protections. The GOP Congress is likely to roll back new consumer protections, such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform passed in 2010 and the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which was set up by Elizabeth Warren before she was elected a Massachusetts senator, and has gone after sectors like the payday loan industry. House Republicans have talked about shutting down the new agency and replacing it with a toothless commission.

14. Start the privatization bandwagon. This goes beyond the GOP platform’s call to sell Amtrak, the federal passenger railway. Trump’s idea of student loan reform is to end federal loans and hand that over to private banks. He also wants to expand charter schools and other K-12 education that are publicly funded but privately run. And Vice President-elect Tim Pence has been a big proponent of investing some Social Security trust funds on Wall Street.

15. Cut taxes, increase military spending. Trump embraced Ronald Reagan’s two-part formula from the 1980s that sent the federal debt through the roof: cutting taxes, especially for high earners, which lowered federal revenues, and vastly increasing Pentagon spending. Trump has repeatedly said he would do both, creating the spectacle of an economic trainwreck that future presidents and Congresses will have to clear up.

16. Bomb ISIS and increase foreign wars. Trump has said he wants to bomb ISIS, increase the use of torture or other tactics that are considered war crimes under international law, and show foreign adversaries that he means business. Trump clearly relishes his strongman posturing, even though he has never served in the military or fought in a war, so it may be a matter of time before he is provoked or enticed into a new overseas war.

First 100 Days

Nobody can know what will happen once Trump takes office. No politician does everything he promises he’ll do. But if you look at the promises and platforms put forth by Trump and the Republican Party’s ideologues who are their congressional leaders and platform writers, the Obama years are poised to vanish, as a crueler, colder and more draconian America comes into view.

    Yes, let Trump and the GOP deliver the coup de grace on the system—it needs major structural changes.
    Trump will provide lots of amusement as he tries to deal with foreign affairs w/o a teleprompter, or scratch his head and try to make good on that hair-brained scheme of building a wall.

          You were so insulated you couldn’t even see after losing the House, Senate that there was growing anger of Obama’s policies.

            Being the great conservative ideology expert that you are, why don’t you try explaining to all us leftist/elitists, why it is that conservatives such as yourself would want to live in the most trashed nation on the planet filled with people who are ignorant (less educated), and who are mostly broke, living on poverty level wages, with the worst healthcare on the planet, with the rapidly becoming shortest lifespans (America is now #50 in longevity due mostly to the short lifespans in red states), and which has for an industrialized nation the worst infrastructure including mass transit of any similar country in the world (the GOP’s resistance to improving our infrastructure has succeeded in accomplishing that).

            Why in all the world would you conservatives want to create such a country?? Republicans have already done that in more than 90% of the states that they govern. You want to turn America into the hellholes that Texas, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana (the #2 and 3 most miserable states) and on and on have become?? Is that what you really want?? Because Donald Trump will make all that even worse!!!!!!!

            Same old diarrhea of the brain.
            Who has been in the WH these last 8 years? Who controlled the Senate for 6 years of these 8. So the left controlled 2/3 of the government for 6 years, but you want me to answer questions about the condition of the country. How silly you are. Obama never from day one wanted to have anything to do with Congress and you won’t take responsibility for his actions.
            Who has refused to reach out to congress?

            Wow! You really are stupid. It’s got nothing to do with whose been in the White House, it has everything to do with who has been controlling Congress since 1995 and refusing to spend any money whatsover. And the political party that has been taking over and destroying state after state.

            Dumbing down the economies of every state they govern which is shown by all the survey groups saying it’s GOP-run states that have become the most miserable places to live.

            And it’s the party that has worked tirelessly over the past 8 years to obstruct everything Obama and the Dems have wanted to accomplish – with an Emperor named McConnell that has used the fake filibuster to block everything the Dems have wanted to do.

            Trouble with those links for you they are factual and show how poor a leader Obama was/is. What is beyond you is there 3 equal branches of govt. but everything is the fault of the right. ????????????How many times has Obama sat down with congress to work out solution! Few to none. His idea was EO’s of which he lost in court.
            Hillary lost because she was a terrible candidate who was asking for a 3rd Obama term under her, which was rejected.
            You can babble all you want but you lost big time.

            “What is beyond you is there 3 equal branches of govt. but everything is the fault of the right.”

            And there you go with more moronic comments: 3 equal branches now controlled by one corrupt and evil political party; with a psychopath now poised to run the whole corrupt network.

            And since when isn’t all of today’s problems the fault of the GOP, which has virtually had enough control over the past 20 plus years to dictate almost all directions America takes; and which since 2011 has controlled the budgeting which is forced Democrats to operate under austerity, when clearly stimulating the economy has been called for.

            And let’s see you come up with some statistics that show it’s been the Dems fault when the past 100 years of history have shown the following:

            It’s Democrats who by far do a better job at running the economy and job creation: Since 1900 the average GDP under Republicans has been a paltry 2.6% while a much better 4.3% under democrats. And 40 million jobs have been created by Carter, Clinton and Obama in less than 20 years in office, while Republicans could only generate 24 million jobs under Reagan and the two Bushes in with 20 years of failed governance.

            And even with respect to the stock market. The GOP’s propensity for creating recessions and depressions with their idiotic ideology of running governments on the cheap, has resulted in the stock market actually having a negative gain under the 42 years of failed GOP presidencies; while under the 43 years of Dem presidencies the market has shown over 300% in gains. (Of the 17 recessions and 3 depressions since 1900, the Dems only had 3 recessions start during a Dem presidency and actually had 3 presidents who served 8 years without a recession starting: LBJ, Clinton and Obama.)

            How would you like to have invested $10,000 in the stock market in 1930 hoping it would fund your retirement, only to find 73 years later in 2008 when Bush 2 ended his presidency that that $10,000 was actually then worth much less than $5,000 had you kept it in the market only when a Republican was president.

            While had you kept it in the market only when a Dem was president, t hat $10,000 today would have grown to over $350,000.

            Now all that looks to me like it’s been the Dems who have actually done a much better job of guiding America than Republicans, even though in my lifetime I’ve voted for 3 GOP presidents: Eisenhower, Ford and Bush 1. But since I’ve done a bunch of research, I’ve discovered the big mistakes that I’ve made.

            And I’m not in any way suggesting the Dems have been saints and have always done everything I would have wished they would do. But take the Vietnam war for example: the war actually started when Eisenhower sent Americans into Laos back in the mid 50s; a move which escalated during Ike’s presidency to the point that JFK felt the need to escalate things to try and quash what Ike started.

            And although LBJ may not have always made the right decision, it was Nixon committing Treason by getting the Vietnamese to not accept LBJ’s peace initiative that essentially resulted in the war going on for years after LBJ was out of office. And don’t forget, it was Bush 1 that got us into the first mideast war and Bush 2 who got America into two more wars, both of which could arguably have been avoided had Bush and Cheney been derelict in their duty of protecting America by refusing to let the CIA and FBI try to stop bin Laden’s 9/11 attack; and deliberately lied America into the Iraq war.

            So once again, given that it was he Dems who enacted Social Security and Medicare, the two most depended on government benefits in most Americans’ lifetimes.

            Exactly what are all the damaging things the Dems have done that Republicans did not exacerbate when they had the chance???

He could never win California so he didn’t concentrate on California, And there are several MEDIA outlets including CNN that say when ALL is said and done Trump will have the popular vote AS-WELL due to absentee ballots that are still being counted, they are mostly military and the military is solidly for Trump… And that’s not even taking into account the 100’s of thousands if not millions of stolen votes that the Democrats are famous for, Several of your leaders were even caught bragging about it on hidden recording devices both audio and video this election cycle , not to mention the Emails where they are also bragging and strategizing about steeling and rigging elections.. Just go ask Bernie Sanders about it.. But at least he did get a bitchin new lake home out of the deal……….

            Her lead in the total popular vote is growing as the votes are still being counted. That 400,000 figure has now become around 600,000. Official vote tallies are showing right now that although Trump won the electoral college vote, Clinton is ahead by almost 600,000 votes with more ballots still to be counted in deep-blue states like California and Washington. I’m just saying that your map is not reflective of how Americans voted as a country.

            State governments and federal Congress are hard to go by because the Red Map gerrymandering of federal Congressional districts done at the turn of the decade were also done on state legislative districts. In both cases, the party make-up of the Houses is also not reflective of the actual vote.

            Mike, we can’t get you out of your echo chamber. So, continue your giddiness until reality sets in. You and others have a major reasoning ailment, judging by your comments and lack of vision. An inability to understand patterns, and a severe lack of a sense of nobility mislead you into thinking you’ve achieved a victory. Trump’s rhetoric won’t change the downward trajectory you’ve set a course for. Nor were you able to glean anything from the lessons of former emperors and czars, each of whom started out strong yet were reduced to ashes in the end.
            This lack of pattern recognition, lack of foresight and insight will be your undoing and that of those in the “Red Zone”. Putin will help in your demise.

            Really, even George Will is concerned about Trump’s cozy relationship with Putin.

            Why George Will Might Be Right About Vladimir Putin’s Hold Over Donald Trump (VIDEO)

            At a minimum, Trump appears to have a deep financial dependence on Russian money from persons close to Putin. And this is matched to a conspicuous solicitousness to Russian foreign policy interests where they come into conflict with US policies which go back decades through administrations of both parties. There is also something between a non-trivial and a substantial amount of evidence suggesting Putin-backed financial support for Trump or a non-tacit alliance between the two men.

            2. Post-bankruptcy Trump has been highly reliant on money from Russia, most of which has over the years become increasingly concentrated among oligarchs and sub-garchs close to Vladimir Putin. Here’s a good overview from The Washington Post, with one morsel for illustration …

            Since the 1980s, Trump and his family members have made
            numerous trips to Moscow in search of business opportunities, and they have relied on Russian investors to buy their properties around the world.

            “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump’s son, Donald Jr., told a real estate conference in 2008, according to an account posted on the website of eTurboNews, a trade publication. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

            I’ll give you this though. When you have a DNC official feeding debate questions in advance to one of the candidates, and that candidate gladly accepts this cheating proposition without saying a word, what does that say about her character?

            Not picky enough? Then explain Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

            My point about pickyness?

            Hillary uses wrong server and makes a lot of money giving private speeches. Clinton supporter: “I’m not voting for that bi*ch.”

            Trump gets accused of sexual assault by 11 women, gets officially endorsed by the KKK in their newsletter, and faces a $100 million dollar lawsuit for sexual assault against both a 12 and a 13 year old. Trump supporter: “So?”

            “Wrong server”? How about a server that was Illegal, unprotected, to hid her activities. Even after Obama told all cabinet members January 2009 If they were going to use a personal email to run it thru govt servers. This whole debacle was caused by Hillary and Hillary alone.
            You forget the communist party endorsement of Hillary. You ignore that Trump never asked for KKK endorsement or accepted their endorsement.

            The Communist party routinely backs the Democratic candidate for President because they’re as close as it’s going to get for some of the things they believe in, no matter how far from communism the Democratic candidate may be. They started off backing Bernie until he conceded.

            In contrast, I can’t recall the KKK endorsing anyone before. I may be wrong, but I don’t think even George Wallace got their endorsement. Just the fact that they consider Trump to be their man should tell you something. Trump didn’t disavow their endorsement on CNN and Marco Rubio said that made him unelectable.

            You won’t get an argument from me on Hillary’s private server and the mixing of the Clinton Foundation with the state department. As Huma Abedin said in one of the hacked Podesta e-mails, “she created this mess and she knows it.”

            I knew full well that she had issues, but those issues still paled in comparison to Trump’s issues.

        Actually, Rush, the right of the people to petition the government is enshrined in the 1st Amendment. You, being a constitutional ignoramus, are probably unaware of that. So the only way to eliminate that right is to pass a Constitutional Amendment that negates it. That means it needs to pass both houses with a 2/3 Majority, then be sent to the individual states. Once 34 States agree to it, it becomes law.
        Just because Alabama refused to Ratify the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments until the 1980s didn’t mean they weren’t valid!

        Right now Trump is the subject of more than 50 civil suits,
        but the lawsuits over Trump University are going to severely embarrass him. The trial begins sometime this month. It’ll put the lie to his claim of being a wildly successful entrepreneur and a canny dealmaker. He’s going to be revealed as the fraudster that he is who made promises he couldn’t keep. The legal proceedings have already revealed the details of the Trump University scam. Thanks to an order from judge Curiel, they’ll probably also reveal a closely guarded secret: Trump’s net worth. He fights like hell to keep it a secret, for a reason. That’s why…no tax returns.

        None of this matters now. He won, and his justice department will squash anything beyond civil law. They may find a way to squash that.

      America will be revitalized all right; at least in certain industries. Personally, I plan on investing in companies that make batons, rubber bullets, tear gas and riot gear. I also predict that Kool-Aide and cyanide will skyrocket.

      I’m telling you AgLander, I’m going to clean up.

      Golden age? Nah. Just cheap plating like on the fixtures in all of his properties. I predict this administration will be similar to putting lipstick on a pig.

      Typical Right-wing reactionary. Whassamatta? Didn’t your mommy hug you when you ripped the wings off your first fly? Couldn’t get a date in high school, even when you offered to pay them?
      You would prefer us to be obedient little puppets? Here’s a question – what happens when someone decides you have one liberal position and you need to go to a reeducation camp?

      Really, get a proper education? Really? Is that why it’s red states that lead the nation by far in having the poorest educated people in America? With the hellhole named Texas having the lowest percentage of college educated people?

      And why it’s GOP run states that have been designated as being the most miserable states in America with the worst quality of life, the shortest lifespans, the most people broke and on the verge of bankruptcy, the most people dying prematurely by every means you can dream up??

      What a laugh!! You mindless right-wing nuts don’t realize the disaster you’re creating even for yourselves!!!!!

      Re-education camps for dissenters. Now what’s more American than that? Expelling, or disappearing political opponents? Or upholding other good old fashioned traditions, like having the President’s information minister restrict speech, control the press, or convict dissidents who have the temerity to speak truth to power, convicted of treason, and summarily shot. Some Country you have in mind. Was it why you supported Trump?

    What a freaking nightmare. I’d like to know just in what universe anyone sees those actions as the beginning of a new golden age in America.

    Trump’s campaign of hatred for “others” was showing its effects during both the primary and general elections. As president-elect, Trump has brought hatred to a level not seen since the civil war. The children who are “other” are bullied and threatened in schools. Adults who are “other” have received death threats, been assaulted, called vulgar names, had their property destroyed or vandalized, and been targeted by Trumpanzees who were plotting to bomb them and their property. The orange blob will deny any responsibility for it using the same lie he always uses in these situations blaming his Trumpanzees saying he can’t control how they interpret his words.
