Trump Wins: What It Means

One quick note: don’t freak out. We’ll be fine. Hopefully. We don’t know what is going to happen in the next four years. However, if the political platform that Donald Trump ran on were to all to go into action, these would be the potential policies.

Foreign Policy

  • Focus on battling the Islamic State
  • Possibly restore good ties with Vladimir Putin and Russia
  • Cut the Iran nuclear deal

Immigration

  • Secure American borders with a plan to construct a wall on the border between the US and Mexico
  • Deport undocumented immigrants with criminal history
  • Close off entry for refugees such as those from Syria

Health Care

  • Repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare
  • Create a privatized health care system

Gun Control

  • Complete defense of the Second Amendment
  • No restrictions on gun access or ownership
  • Command a stronger police force to lower gang activity and crime rate

Climate Change

  • Deregulate the Environmental Protection Agency that has cost many jobs
  • Claims human-caused global warming is a hoax
  • Could cancel the US approvalĀ of the monumental Paris Agreement that works as a global effort to lower greenhouse gas emissions

Abortion

  • Opposed to abortion except in cases of incest, rape, or life of the mother
  • Will appoint a majority conservative Supreme Court that could in possibility repeal the Roe V. Wade decision in which it protects the right for women to have an abortion
