Could Trump’s Presidency be as powerful as portrayed in the media? By Fabian Becerra

At 10: P.M. it is announced in disbelief that the world’s first talking cheeto was elected president: Donald J. Trump. “Omg”, you gasp in your seat. “How could this be?” You ask as you pack your bags to catch a plane to Canada. Before you say goodbye to everything you love in America , let me explain. In 2012, many people did not vote for Obama or even at all. Then in 2016 Donald Trump, for some reason decides to run for La Casa Blanca. He spits out vulgarity with his mouth, basically degrading anyone that is not a white male with the sexual orientation of a male. Somehow he got the attention of people and it is honestly the most sad yet fascinating thing to watch. Soon to follow he would be labeled “The agent of change” and to others, “the female genital grabbing cheeto who broke America” People started coming from everywhere to vote, even those people that live off the grid and in a hole in Texas. Even fellow Republicans are like “Woah Man, this dude cray! One of the Head Honchos of the Republican Party, Former Governor Of Massachusetts, had this to say during an interview with ABC News “I wanted my grandkids to see that I simply couldn’t ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world” Even Colin Powell fired the shotgun at Trump saying “Fellow Republicans believe [Trump] “has no sense of shame,” and is “a national disgrace” and “international pariah.” He said that “the whole birther movement was racist” and complained that the media was providing Trump with oxygen to fuel his campaign." Republicans may have had differences, But the crusty old people fist fight didn’t matter because Trump is president or should I say King of The United States. My question to you guys is: Now that Trump’s arse is in the oval office, could his presidency that one thing that every good soul fears, or will he pipe down, drink his prune juice, and go to bed like every other president after the election? That question will be answered!

The Great Wall of Congress

You know that thing called congress? You know, the thing that in our government that’s infested with republicans? It’s also the organization that opposed every idea Obama put in place for his all of his 8 years. Obama would come up with a law that would be in favor of the republicans and they would still oppose it. My point is that the president doesn’t have as much power as one is lead to believe. This could be a plus for those who oppose Trump because the dude’s got some messed up ideas for our country. Basically anyone could have an idea for a law but it has to go through the house and congress before the president even smells it. There are also a lot of people in the house, despite being republican, that don’t like Trump. So sorry Mr. Trump it’s literally impossible for you to water board and torture families of terrorists like you wanted.

Will Trump actually do Something good?

There isn’t much information out there as to what he has planned for our country. Based on certain sources he’s going to be Armageddon and to others he will be the savior. I’m going to tell you right now - he is no Savior. I’d love to see a dude that’s filed bankruptcy multiple times TRY and fix our economy. But according to he might not be so bad. According to their site, he has high standards - and not just for women! He demands high performance and hard work. (I’d like to see it to believe it). He will build an empire. Trump is extremely rich. With the U.S. trillions of dollars in debt, this is the sort of leader that might be able to turn it all around.

Could that Vulgar Trump that we saw during the election be an act?

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign feels like a practical joke or publicity tour gone right actually. But it turns out the Donald is running a long con. A new report by Eli Stokols and Ben Schreckinger from Politico suggests Trump has been plotting this stunt for years, and he knew exactly what he had to do to succeed. According to the report, Trump was approached two years ago by GOP operatives who wanted him to run for governor of New York. To their surprise, he declined but added that they would be useful when he ran for president. “I’m going to walk away with it and win outright,” Trump told the group, “I’m going to get in and all the polls are going to go crazy. I’m going to suck all the oxygen out of the room. I know how to work the media in a way that that they will never take the lights off of me.” Trump even said on 60 minutes that he would not prosecute Hillary Clinton and the Clinton foundation, saying they are “good people” and they’ve “made America hell of alot better. He also called for his supporters to stop provoking the left with hateful comments and hateful actions. “Talking crap isn’t what America's about - it’s about each other not just one people.” Strange isn’t it? Considering his whole campaign was infected with racism, misogyny, and bigotry. Who knows he might be A good president. (Regrettably).

Now it’s time to get the opinion of our readers.

Q: Will Donald Trump do anything about ISIS

A: (By Andres Bedoya, 2nd Lt., US Air Force Aka my brother. [Answer was given before deployment.] “It depends how he’s gonna get the job done. You’re talking about a man who wages wars on twitter. I mean - some of the best of us don’t know he’s gonna do. I just hope he doesn’t kick America’s bucket in the Middle East. I’m going there soon and I pray i don’t become a guinea pig to his ISIS experiment.”

Q: Will Trump Truly live up to his campaign promises?

A: (By Anthony Mitchell, Grade 8)

“No, I don't think so. Donald Trump, from i’ve seen loves the spotlight. He’ll say anything to get what we wants. Plus there are laws in place that prevent some of his ideas from happening - so i don’t think he’ll actually go through with the radical things he said”

Q: Should Trump even have ran at all, considering the things he has said and done?

A: by Jack Zapfel, (Staples high school Graduate)

“Personally, I wanted a candidate that was different from Hillary Clinton. She’s been in our Government for 30 years. But, Donald Trump shouldn’t have been allowed to run. He’s hysterical, racist and a lot of other things. But he isn’t White House material. He kind of brings out the negativity in America, and that isn’t what America is about. Washington would be spinning in his grave if he found out Donald Trump is president”
