After an almost two yearlong political campaign full of scandals, and a historical election night that kept people from all of the world on the edge of their seat, Donald Trump came out as the winner for the republican party. The 70 year old businessman managed to beat Hillary Clinton in the election race, and he will now be the next president of the United States. Trump will take office at 20 January 2017. Barack Obama, who has been the president of the United States for the last eight years, will hand over the baton to him.
Although Trump is a symbol of hope for a lot of people, there are also a lot of US-citizens who are uncertain and scared about the future of their country and their lives now that he has become their new president. An unpredictable future lies ahead.
It remains a question how Trump's proposed policies will affect the nation. For example, the rules on immigration will most likely chance a lot during his presidency, and that is a concern of many immigrants in the North American country. Other people will closely watch how he handles the economy or how he reforms the healthcare system. For gambling enthusiast it is also worth to speculate about the policy chances in the USA, because Trump is a president that might be very good for them.
While many people might feel scared or uncertain, gamblers probably join the group that see hope in a Trump presidency. The business mogul has after all opened and operated several casinos in the past.
An example of such a casino is the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He, reportedly, has also shown interest in launching Florida based casinos, and seems to have lobbied to change the gambling laws in that state. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush was one of the people who apparently stood in his way.
However, now that Trump is the new president of the United States, there will be less people standing in his way. He will have the power to ease gambling laws all over the country, and that will certainly be positive news for gambling fans and entertainment business owners alike. It will probably also be good for Trump's own businesses. Although, he has to be careful that he does not run into problems due to conflicts of interest.
Some people consider Trump as the savior of the nation, and they consider his election as a dream come true. Others see him as the symbol of evil, and they find it a nightmare that he has become president. The country remains heavily divided. Will Trump bring negative or positive changes?
During the course of the election cycle, trump has frequently demonstrated that he is an unpredictable man when it comes to stating political view points, but given his gambling entertainment business history, the odds are high that he will make United States gamblers happy in the near future.
