Whether you agree or not, #Donald Trump is now the president of the United States (the 45th to be exact). There is no denying, though, that the road to the presidential seat was not easy, considering all the controversies that surfaced. Some will say that he is not worthy of the presidency. However, there are also a great number of people who actually believe otherwise. Despite the differences, it is safe to say that it is about time that people put all of this behind them, and perhaps take a gander at a number of reasons why President Donald Trump will likely bring the country beyond its potential.

Mainstream media and fake news

The 2016 election was, without a doubt, one of the most polarizing elections, considering the fact that it exposed a lot of problems in the US media.

Remember CNN leaking the debate question to Hillary Clinton? Not to mention other news outlets suggesting that Trump was guilty of sexually abusing women. Since Donald Trump took office, there has seemingly been a constant, daily war against fake news.

Free trade

Being an outsider, President Donald Trump had the upper-hand in terms of the element of surprise. No one expected him to succeed, and he was able to use that to his advantage. He basically believes in “free trade” rather than “fair trade.” The idea behind this is that tariffs will most likely be imposed against countries that are either imposing tariffs against the United States or using the internal rules and regulations to undercut US competition from their own market.

Putting an end to political correctness

In its most organic form, political correctness stifles free speech.

As George Carlin described it, “Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance.” Think of it as a way for people to rebrand something that is already deemed “bad.” Take for instance the rumors about Trump’s supporters shouting the “N” word; apparently, when asked to provide an audio recording, they could not do so. Why? Because such a recording does not exist.

Revolutionizing the way presidential communication is done

History tells us that if you are a president, you always have the resources, and, of course, official places to communicate. With President Donald Trump, however, this is not always an option. Twitter, in particular, has become his avenue for voicing his plans and opinions.

Unfortunately, not all Americans agree with his style. Some would even mock him to the point of questioning his sanity. In what way is using Twitter to communicate wrong?
