I think a lot is talk. Obamacare will go, but it was always going to be changed, he does plan on replacing it with something and keeping a lot of the good. But this will just be another place holder, imo, until we end up with Universal health care - even if it's decades away. I think LGBTQ rights won't drastically change. Things like bathroom laws maybe but not gay marriage. Let's not forget he's simply going to be at the will of his Republican advisors as he knows nothing about being President. Immigration laws were bound to change too but I don't think it'll be nearly as drastic as all the worst case scenarios but forward. But that all said, nobody knows bc HE doesn't even know. lol
Do you not realize how much damaged the Republicans will do in the next two years? Trump will listen to the Republican party and do everything they tell him. Which is to basically destroy everything Obama did. Trump wants to be a 2-term President, the only way for him to do this is to become the Republican's party puppet.
We are fucked. A LOT can happen in 2 years.
I am so upset at all of this. I am tired of the Republicans pushing us back. Tired of these Republican Presidents fucking up EVERYTHING the Democratic President accomplished to only have another Democrat come in and fix everything the Republican fucked up and the cycle goes on.
