How Will Trump Govern?

The U.S. has never before had a president with no political or military experience, nor one who so routinely shirks the truth, embraces conspiracy theories, and contradicts himself. All of this makes it almost impossible to know how he will govern. … But Trump’s looming presidency does have a precedent: George W. Bush’s. Several parallels stand out. For starters, like Bush, Trump did not win the popular vote, but may nonetheless assume that he has a mandate for sweeping change. And the direction of that change may produce results that not even his supporters like.

D’OH! – Paddy Power Pay Out Over $4.5 Million to Trump Backers Three Weeks After Paying Out On Hillary Clinton Early

Press Release: (9 November 2016) Paddy Power, the bookmaker who paid out over $1 million early to its customers who backed Hillary Clinton, were left counting the cost of their decision today after Donald Trump upset the odds to win the U.S. presidential election.

The result also stung Paddy Power for its biggest political payout ever with the bookie being hit for over $4.5 million by customers who backed Trump.

After Donald Trump was hit with scandal after scandal the bookie was confident of Hillary’s chances — prompting the whopping payout. But Clinton’s campaign took a late hit thanks to the reopened FBI investigation which resulted in a huge surge in bets for The Donald.
