How presidential candidates campaign for office is precisely how they will conduct themselves when elected. Hillary Clinton will try to satisfy everyone, and make significant compromises to get bills passed. Progress will be made slowly.
Donald Trump will bully and insult anyone who disagrees with him. He can get away with that in his corporate empire, but neither Congress nor the international community will play along. All his great promises will turn to dust, and he will blame “them” for his failures. Slow but sure, or tough-sounding but ineffective? The choice is ours.
