Fiat and Emperor Tweetus the Orange

“The president-elect’s focus on domestic jobs has shifted awareness of this topic, and it’s likely to have a dramatic impact on future U.S. auto production. However, as with all government influence, it will be interesting to see what, if any, unintended consequences surface as a result of Trump’s position."----

Now look, I am all for automotive jobs coming back to the US. Especially to the beleaguered Rust Belt.

But, am I wondering just what the heck is going on here? It all just seems too easy to me; The Emperor tweets and all of these guys just start announcing; "Oh, okay. We'll bring it back.". WTF?

I can't help but wonder what's going on behind the scenes when businessmen start reversing their plans on a handful of grandiose promises from a tweeting jackass and habitual liar, not having a single one of them actually in hand or knowing what the possible "unintended consequences" of it might be.

What is he telling these people?

Donald Trump is not about "Poll" Donald Trump is about "Power".

Trump, with the existing congress, will soon be able to put a right slant on almost everything he touches.
In the very near future Donald Trump will nominate a supreme court justice.

He has a two year window.

The second paragraph of the article: "And now it's over." should read "It is about to begin."
