But you just said that US citizens who live abroad shouldn't vote because they won't be affected.

So which is it?
This, what I said:

unless you are prepared to be directly affected by your choice. Play with words if you wish - most will understand, as do you.

Vladimir Putin is the winner too - sod all I can do about it- does stop me 'caring' and being truly scared of that link. Same with Erdogan, and Kim Jung- with Marine I may have a tiny weeny little bit of influence, perhaps?

Re: Will Trump be the next US President?

Did no-one else find it curious that Jane Doe dropped her underage rape lawsuit *the day* before the election? Intimidation? BS lawsuit in the first place?

What about the other women claiming sexual assault? The new President elect has vowed to go after them for defamation. I saw one woman's interview - she came across as 100% reliable and trustworthy in her account of what happened to her.

DT however didn't, despite his bluster and outrage at the accusation.
So what happens if he's convicted while in office?

You're the one playing with words.

On the one hand you say that expatriate US citizens shouldn't vote because they won't be affected by their choice; then on the other hand you say you care because their choice affects the whole world.

Make up your mind!

I read a President cannot be convicted of a crime committed prior to taking office. Besides, he can pardon himself. He can, however be impeached by process.

Trump can be sued while he's in office and would have to pay up if found liable.

He cannot be criminally prosecuted for his acts while in office. He can only be impeached.

If Bill wasn't impeached (actually he was, but he was acquitted) for getting a nookie in the oval room, I am sure Trump won't for grabbing some ass in his office

It seems Trump has the power to troll like a leprechaun. He trolled the media during this campaign. So that may be a Leprechaun vs. Golem matchup.

Re: Will Trump be the next US President?

A hilarious thought; Trump gives a nod to Milo Yiannopoulos, and assign him as press secretary, to give a nod to the LGBT community. I think it would throw the SJWs into disarray.

Re: Will Trump be the next US President?

Well it's been a long day and I'm still laughing.

Some people have taken Trump's win worse than others.

Term limits, restrictions on lobbying, and ban from lobbying for foreign interests. It's iterated in Donald's contract, which I'm sure many didn't read.
Like Brexit, Donald's web site is gone

Private Prison Stocks Are Surging After Trump's Win.

Donald Trump's victory in the presidential elections helped shares of Corrections Corp. rise as much as 60 percent before paring their surge to 34 percent by 10:14 a.m. in New York, while GEO Group Inc. was trading 18 percent higher by the same time.

It looks like Hillary got more votes...(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United...election,_2016)


Drumpf: 59,029,252
Cillary: 59,164,747

maybe time to change the electoral voting system ;-)
And there are ca. 240 million registered voters (population ca. 330 million) so only half bothered to vote?
maybe time to making voting compulsory?
