Donald Trump has officially been elected as the next president, so now voters are wondering if he will actually hold true to his claims and promises. Can he really throw Hillary Clinton in jail, build a border wall and more? An expert spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY and gave us all the answers.
Donald Trump, 70, defied all odds to become the 45th president of the United States. Despite his controversial remarks and low-ranking poll numbers, the Republican candidate defeated Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8 after a hard-fought race. Now, that he will become the leader of the “free world” after his inauguration, voters are dying to know what this means for the American people. Will he keep his word and deliver on all the promises that got him into the Oval Office? Political expert David Simon shared with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what we can expect.
As far as Hillary’s fate, she doesn’t need to be worried. He revealed, “Donald can’t throw her in jail or anything like that. The Attorney General could do that once Trump has an Attorney General named, nominated and approved which will take time. This is a long process which will not take place on January 22nd when Trump is inaugurated. I do not think an Attorney General will make this a priority instead I think this is an example of campaign rhetoric.” Phew.
So, what does this mean for the border wall? David explained, “Making Mexico pay for it, how can he pull that one-off? The wall would have to be appropriated by Congress, the budget would have to be allocated and perhaps they could do that in the next cycle which starts in Feb. and ends in Oct. Construction could conceivably be started in that time span but more likely construction could start in late 2017 at the earliest.”
When it comes to Obamacare, it seems the probability of its disappearance is very likely, as David revealed it could “easily” happen as early as Feb. 2017. Our political expert also says Donald’s policy on illegal immigrants could take place quicker than many thought. He explained, “That can be done as a matter of policy on day one, Trump can announce that any illegal immigrant stands to be deported upon discovery. He could direct Homeland Security to start tapping people on their shoulders and asking for their papers and that is a frightening possibility.”
