Markets have already recovered all their loses and are have even made gains. All of sudden from doom and gloom people are taking the view that he is pro growth. :)

I wonder what will the implications of his policies. I heard he is going to increase drilling, coal production in the US so it will be bad for commodity prices.

Also he hates Saudi Arabia. I think oil prices are set to fall.

Trump is good for India. Obama was bad.

A forgotten group. And the liberal media is not doing the country a favor when they conveniently forget about this demographics. Poor, white and rural. At the end of the day, we are all human. We want to participate in the economic success of the country, be able to forge a living, allowed to live our lifestyles. And we all want to be heard. We all want to have a voice.

Raj, he didn't know Fck all about running an election campaign but he apparently does know something about reading the ground more accurately than Killary and all the political pundits in NYC and Washington DC did. He did know just how angry the ground was. DC & Killary didn't have a clue.


he knew more about the ground than Hilary.. i think they were better researched while the democrats were supremely confident, overconfident if you ask me.. however i have a feeling he's bound to fumbele his way through governance just like Bush Jr. did. i also think all his controversies with women found favour with the general public, they saw him a mortal human, making the same mistakes as anyone else would..

One of us, as it were. Mortal and not living in an ivory tower. Living in a golden tower is a different story, as that is about winning. The spoils of victory or success. Those in Ivory tower usually get there by the school tie networks or having enough dirt on your opponent and connections.

Singapore has thoroughly benefitted from globalization and is extremely reliant on globalization. Now with most countries looking inwards it can be said that globalization has peaked and from here it will only reverse. So can we say that Singapore's best days too are behind it?

SGD has hit 1.4 again to the USD after a long time. May be signs of things to come.

I basically made that prediction on this board on the 40th National Day if Singapore, 11 years ago. Will be interesting to see the next 30 years.

Another forgotten group. The war veterans. Shameful how their plights have been ignored by the establishment. Trump singled them out in his speech. He will champion their cause.

In fact, just knowing that someone in Washington is finally listening to them and not writing them off as racists or Neanderthals will be an amazing start

I'm extraordinarily impressed with Trump for winning if nothing else; he has truly been the disruptor of this US election cycle. I'm sure books and analysis will continue for decades as to how an essentially self funded and self guided man outwitted a massively funded and well resourced political opponent. Personally the day the democrats threw Bernie to the wolves and insisted on their undemocratic political dynastic concept I figured they were no longer listening to their electorate but just playing internal power games.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Are you kidding me? Faux News fell all over themselves fawning over "The Donald". Faux News published many utterly false reports that supported Trump, only to tepidly retract their statements after the damage had been done.

Fox News ought to be placed in a sack with several bricks, be thrown off a bridge into a deep river, to be drowned and never heard from again.

Didn't he take on their premier political commentator at the debate they hosted?

I only saw the highlights and I don't really watch TV let alone FOX news , but Donald seems to have some views which seem at odds with a lot of the FOX news agenda.
