    Will Trump change the fundamental values and what other people view as being American? Is freedom of speech going to be taken away? Are we still going to be dubbed the land of the free?

    Depends. He will have a wall to his name, which should last a bit. It could work or it might not.
    He could issue more executive orders that make it onto twitter than any other US president.

    History will show which of his policies worked.

    I'm waiting for the scrapping of the Iran nuclear deald and the trade war with China. Also interested to see whether his economic protectionism works.

    People said that Obama would change the world, and look at the result... So I don't think that Trump will change the USA.

    Do you mean return the country to the fundamental values the majority of
    Americans held for the last 200 years? The same ones that were our guideline as we evolved into a world power?

    Is Freedom of Speech going to be taken away? Before the election if you were in a crowd of liberals and announced you supported Trump you risked physical assault. Your Freedom Of Speech has been shown so little respect, especially in the last 8 years, it's no longer held to be absolute and immutable. Will we still be dubbed the land of the free? Yes, and after Trump gets through dismantleing obamas regulatory legacy we'll even be a little freer.

    No he won't. He'll be remembered as a clown who did nothing to change the country and created short term growth through excessive government spending whilst worsening the government debt will. The wall will one day be knocked because it is so ineffective in stopping illegal immigration and costs too much to maintain.

    He'll be remembered as a great scaremonger who managed to blame all the problems of the USA at foreigners and foreign countries whilst not caring about the domestic issues that genuinely threaten americans.

    He'll be remembered as the one who picked a fight with China who btw have a huge dollar reserve and has the capacity to plummet the value of the dollar and bring America to its knees. For this reason he'll teach the world that progressive thinking and diplomacy is the way forward. He would also have slowed down the inevitability of globalism for no reason.

    His degenerative policies and failure as a president will however be hailed by rednecks for many years to come.

    Let's hope so - by putting the everyday American native first and not pandering to the foreigners and the PC crowd.
