It will be interesting how the President-elect's backers will react when it turns out all his bombastic pie in the sky promises (...) will for the most part never be able to make good on.
You don't say. I assume you must be endowed with the ability to foresee the future. Did you predict Trump's election too?
I can tell you, if he doesn't keep his word, those who supported him will feel betrayed and despise him profusely.
Based on quite a few factors, but mainly the feasibility of the promises and the track-record of the measurably more qualified and experienced incumbent and his predecessors. It's quite a few big ticket issues that end up either in a state of compromise, deadlock or even get broken entirely -and mind you in the following example these policy-ideas unlike the one's in the President-elect's platform hadn't been branded as infeasible, or even patently impossible to execute by authorities on the relevant subject matters the world over- Think for example the closure of GITMO, providing a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, increase of the minimum wage to $9.50/h, passing the Freedom of Choice act- just to name a few. Issues, that during his election had high hopes of coming to pass, yet unfortunately didn't. And those were as said based on a platform, that unlike the President-elect's actually, for the most part, made good economic and practical sense. The construction of a giant wall, to name a hot-button issue, that defies economic and practical sanity on the other hand, not so much. Brexit and the phantom £350m /week spring to mind as well. So, no I can't predict the future, but I will take the actual implementation of Trump's platform with a huge grain of salt.
