President Donald Trump has been somewhat under control and subdued in the past couple of months but he is getting things done. The occasionally mild mannered US leader spends most of his time in trade negotiations and dealing with leaders from overseas and of course those friends in Congress. He is, in terms of what he potentially could be, somewhat under control. Now some policy experts are asking just what would happen if Trump were to win a second term.
Imagine President Trump, as per an article in CNBC by Chris Krueger, is reelected and is cut from his chains, and then pursues big-ticket spending items that he believes is impeding economic growth. “I think if he wins reelection next year, we are going to see Trump totally unchained,” according to Mr Krueger. There are times, like the USMCA, in which the president can get support from Congress. He will surely be checked by Congress and will be under pressure from the House as the majority will fight him at every turn – the Democrats and the Republicans will never work together in our view, unless the Center (Obama) and (Clinton) can bring the party back to where it belongs.
Trump winning a second term would be interesting but politics would be dog-fight every day for the next four plus years.
