Predictions for the United States 2017

The year 2017 looks like being a very eventful one for the United States, not least due to the fact that a new President will be in place, Donald Trump.

Trump has indicated that he wishes to take the country in a very different direction compared to the last years and decades, as his campaign motto would indicate "make America great again".

Since his victory, protests have erupted across the country, from New York to Los Angeles, these undertaken by people upset by Trump`s stated policies, such as to construct a wall on the southern border of the US and to restrict immigration.

Another big event will be the total eclipse which will take part on August 21, the first of these such astronomical phenomenon to be seen in the United States since 1979. Only a small corridor of the US will see a full eclipse, although most of the country will see at least 80% of the sun covered by our natural satellite.

Predictions for Donald Trump in 2017

Donald Trump has been chosen as the President of the United States in the elections undertaken on November 8, however, he will not be officially sworn in until January 20, 2017.

To say that his campaign was controversial, is a major understatement, he offended many who disagreed with his stated policies, especially when it came to both illegal and Muslim immigration.

One of his policies is to construct a great wall on the southern border of the United States in order to stop people entering the country illegally from Mexico and Central America. He also called for a complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US, although he later walked back on this a little, saying that it would apply only to people from certain countries.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have wished Trump well during his presidency, what do you think? Will Trump make a good President?
