Some US enemies like Russia are becoming his friends, and longtime US allies like Germany are wondering whether America will be there for them any more

I think he's just getting people to start a conversation. It's not necessarily an intentional move YET.

There's nothing wrong with Russia becoming an ally. It doesn't mean we have to drop our other allies. We can have more than one friend right? hahaha

Good point. It's better if we try to make all nation an ally that way, there wouldn't the threat of war. every now and then

I agree that it's not necessarily to create controversy. It would be a good thing to make peace with Russia.

He'll definitely do things that will make news - good or bad - I don't think he cares.

Republicans warned seven years ago that a health care law passed only by Democrats -- with no support from the other party -- would struggle to survive.

As was said earlier, Trump will do things that will raise eyebrows. It will probably for the shock value but we won't know what until his first 100 days.

His supporters are the ones that need healthcare, social security the most and he promised them he would not touch social security and that he had a replacement healthcare plan. Lies, lies, lies!!!

While our traitorous politicians have been bickering for years like idiotic fools, communist China has been crushing the USA in an economic war that we don't even know we're in. Under the FreeTraitors way of thinking we might as well just outsource all of our military needs to communist China, India and Mexico just like we did everything else. What – Why not – I'm sure they could do it much cheaper? What – Why not – That wouldn't be in the best interest of our country and the American People? Here's an important question that we should be asking ourselves – How many components, computer chips and other parts are made in countries like communist China and other countries, where we do not have complete control, that are then used in the weapon systems, communications systems, power grids and other equipment that we rely upon for our National Defense and our military operations? – And where has all our scrap steel and steel production been going? Can you say,"Trojan Horse"? No matter how the globalist-free-marketeers and FreeTraitors try to spin it – Our huge trade deficits and indebtedness to foreign countries like communist China are obviously not in the best interest of our country or the American people. Bringing manufacturing back home to the USA is going to end up being not only a key to restoring our economy, but to maintaining our national security as well. The people with all of the excuses as to why we can't, shouldn't or aren't willing to manufacture products here in the US are the same people who have provided us with the very same shortsighted thinking that's gotten us into this mess in the first place. If more people would have listened to Ross Perot back in 1992, America wouldn't be in this mess. It's Not Rocket Science – Since the FreeTraitors have had their way of it, our largest export has been American jobs and money. What the American People need are actual loyal American leaders who will stop selling us out to other countries like communist China, India and Mexico. Something has to be done because our current system is not working – Other countries like Germany, Japan, Sweden, Canada and China protect their domestic industries, citizen’s jobs and business and it's about time that we start doing so as well. What about the tariffs and VAT that other countries are using on our products? – Not to mention the foreign industries that are subsidized by their governments, including communist China. Time to level the playing field using common sense instead of political BS, tokenism and rhetoric. We need to add tariffs that are proportionate to the inequities in wages and regulations in the country where the goods were produced and or where we’re importing them from – Including country of origin – We could then use the money raised by these tariffs to help companies build state of the art manufacturing plants here in the USA, which would create more jobs here at home for US citizens, which would then in turn increase our income tax revenue. The bottom line is that"Our Government" has to protect domestic industry and the jobs that those industries provide – If they do that, the rest will take care of itself. Unfortunately, both parties, the corrupt manipulative media and their masters evidently just consider the American people to be collateral damage in their game of globalization and cheap wages. NEWS FLASH: Our leaders are supposed to be elected by the citizens of the United States of America to represent the interests of those citizens and the country itself – They are not supposed to be representing Wall Street, lobbyist, international corporations, the global marketplace (WTO, NAFTA, TPP, KORUS), foreign citizens, foreign interests or illegal aliens – And it's high time that all of our so called leaders started honoring that fact. Over the past several decades, all that our traitorous politicians from both parties have been doing is selling out the American People, by stalling, spending, removing protections and allowing illegal aliens to continue to pour in and American jobs and industries to pour out, and all while collecting their American tax-payer funded paychecks, benefits and whatever else they get on the side from their various lobbyist friends. Let's face it, if it wasn't for Trump, our bought and paid for puppet politicians and media would still be talking about peripheral social issues like gay marriage and abortion, instead of the core economic issues that have destroyed the real American economy and the economic future of the American people – It's called polarize and distract – But, fortunately most Americans aren't buying it anymore, because they've finally seen through the BS, spin, rhetoric and media manipulation. The American People have had enough of the bought and paid for puppets that are in favor of the traitorous trade and immigration policies that have destroyed the real American economy and the economic future of the American people. Enough of the puppet politicians that are proponents of the importation of foreign H1B/H2B visa workers, are vague/deceptive on illegal"immigration" and are for the outsourcing of American jobs and industries – That’s bad enough, but now we’re taking in questionable"refugees" from other countries where they hate us and are intolerant of our freedoms, cultures, faiths and women's rights – This crap has got to stop!

This man doesn't have the intellectual capacity nor moral authority to turn any world upside down. The fact that he doesn't have a clue what he's doing is so frightening I lose my breath. I still can't believe this creature will be"president"

He never wanted to be president just as we never wanted him to be. He's putting our country at risk, he could care less about his duties. It's all about him and how much money he can make, trump voters you've Been had and our country and it's citizens will suffer.

The world is in chaos. Either for him, or against him, and he has only just been inaugurated last week. I can only imagine, the continuous spiral, in which this will continue to place the world in.

I agree. He's already made some bold statements on some policy changes including making abortion illegal, removing Obamacare, building the border wall and all this in one week!!
