I hope he does one thing, that's sort of expected of his campaign, and that's fight crime. It's surging and spreading in waves and it's getting to the point where places that used to feel safe are full of gangs, graffiti, shootings, and thugs. I'm not asking for a totalitarian regime or some kind of police state, but I'm tired of losing the freedom to walk the streets. I actually thought if Hillary won she'd push for better law enforcement as well, as Bill did.
Freedom to be safe and walk the streets should be considered a 'right'.
National crime stats are at decades-low rates, three times lower than just 20 years ago
. If there's a surge in your area, it's local, and you can probably bug your local rep to do something about it.
I don't think he can bring jobs back... corporations don't give out jobs as a charity, they are greedy. Besides, automation like AI, robots, and autonomous vehicles .. that's going to destroy jobs more than anything else and no candidate has ever addressed that problem.
Yeah, he promised that kind of thing, but he really doesn't have the ability to do that. Yet his constituency chose him for that reason in large part.
With great freedom comes great responsibility.
