You’ve already broken your New Year’s resolutions. You’ve lost the holiday cheer. And the day before, Donald Trump fulfilled his promise to “make America great again” when he was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States.
Here are 12 things that are bound to happen when US President Donald Trump will take charge. The catastrophe is here you guys. It did not take long for things to change.
1. Mosques are things of the past
It’s no secret that ever since Trump’s brand of Islamophobia has been introduced to the public, there’s been a noticeable upswing in anti-mosque attacks and anti-Islam violence. Whether it’s leaving severed pigs’ heads or wrapping doorknobs in bacon, 2015 is the worst year of anti-mosque sentiment on record. This will only get worse.
2. Say goodbye to health care
It took us decades to get the modest health care reform known as the Affordable Care Act. All that work will be long gone now that a Republican has become the president. Almost instantly, millions of Americans would lose their health insurance (most of whom are poor) and those with pre-existing conditions would go back to living a life where they could be denied coverage based on something with which they were born.
3. It’s very likely abortion becomes illegal
This ties in with #1 but deserves its category. Now that Trump is allowed to replace even 2-3 Supreme Court Justices; that’s probably the end of the line for abortion rights. I don’t think people in this country realize how fragile abortion rights are. All it takes is a court stacked with enough Justices to undo Roe v. Wade, or declare that “life begins at conception and therefore has rights,” and abortion becomes illegal.
