I choose to withhold judgement on the actions taken during the next term until actions are actually taken. Anything less is just writing a fiction novel.
He'll prosecute his own mother if she's guilty.
Jeff Sessions Women's Rights Record
Trump has called Sessions a “world-class legal mind,” but others are not quite so sure. “If you have nostalgia for the days when blacks kept quiet, gays were in the closet, immigrants were invisible, and women stayed in the kitchen, Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is your man,” said Democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez in a statement.
Not a believer in the Global Warming propaganda and an advocate for fossil fuel production. Like it or not, this country cannot survive without energy, and there is presently no viable substitute for fossil fuels. Also, the proposed 'solutions' to Global Warming are the equivalent of outlawing sufficient energy production and denying power to the poor.
New path; new ideas. This is what is going to be, cries of despair and 'protests' against open elections notwithstanding.
And now Putin is our president. Trump is his ambassador.

having to change state by state instead of getting a couple judges to sweep the nation with their utopian agenda
No Child Left Behind, while it did many good things, morphed into govt subsidizing the testing industry, which resulted in draconian laws for public schools in order to test more, while at the same time subsidizing corporate/private schools as refugees from those draconian laws. And NCLB morphed into Common Core.
A lack of "engineers, scientists, doctors, and educators" is not the fault of govt. Our society doesn't value those areas as we once did decades ago. We value business majors. To Americans, science is "junk"; we whine that mathematics is "too hard"; we deride those with any smarts as being "elite".
We have been war mongers for decades, the "world's policeman" since WW2, and trillions in debt after the Bush wars that were put on a credit card. Interesting, though, the Koch ideology would leave the main function of govt as military, and all the money in Washington and dark money and legalized bribery will keep it well fed.
Sure agree about private insurance! And Obamacare was all about private insurance.
Unlike corporations etal, I don't like hiring illegal workers. And under the Koch ideology, labor (as well as capital) is free to cross borders. Solves the problem of corporations wanting to illegally hire workers, just make everybody everywhere legal!
