    With all the news stories about The Donald, I was wondering if anybody outside the US could give us the general feel of their country towards Donald Trump.

    To me, he seems to have a huge ego and is ignorant on his views about the environment. But, I think he knows what he's doing when it comes to a business perspective. I really hope he keeps his word about LGBT rights. I also hope he eventually does more for the environment, even though he probably won't. :/

    Hard to say, some praise him, some despise him. Some talk of him with derision, some are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
    At the end of the day, people care little for Donald Trump. He's a fun topic to talk about, but we have our own issues to deal with.

    He's an uncalculatable narcisst asshole, but I believe that he lied a lot pre-election and might not destroy the world and could do some good.

    He has the potential to do good... but his cabinet choices and vice president will fuck over anyone who isn't a straight cis gender white Christian.

    What could fix his image is to stop spouting nonsense on Twitter and instead tell people to stop committing hateful acts and crimes in his name.

    He scares me and his cabinet scares me more.

    "Incapable idiot" seems to be the general view of those around me

    I, for one, hate everything he stands for.

    Trump is epic. I really wish him the very best and hope he keeps atleast some of his promisses done during the campaign.

    This opinion piece, or rather a lament, sums up the fears of a majority of the politically involved Australian populace. That America can no longer be relied upon. That the greatest democracy on Earth may cease to be a valuable lesson internationally. That Trump is the ultimate symbol of American decline and the abrogation of America's responsibilities in maintaining international peace.

    We fear that 'America First' means abandoning your loyalest allies to their fates. We fear that it means focusing on a dying, archaic industrial base rather than encouraging international growth. We fear that it means foreign policy will be conducted arbitrarily in order to accomplish populist domestic gains and that the current, already shaky, system of international norms will break down as America vacillates according to the whims of its most ignorant president since Jackson, or perhaps even in all US history.

    We fear abandonment for which you never prepared us and the decay of a country upon which the world structurally relies.

    That is what Trump means to your allies.

    What you see is not always what you get, and keeping that in mind I do reserve my right to bitch against him... Until (well... IF)proven guilty.

    Yeah, I could speculate against him knowing where he comes from, and how rich he is, and how the media sees him... But what for? Nothing has been done yet... He is not even at the office!

    I do wish the Americans the very best : A strong economy, a safe country where everyone is protected by law, and a fair relationship with all countries. It is the same I wished for America when Obama took his job. It looked just about right back then, so many expectations, and such a wonderful thing to see the first black president of America, but what America and the world got from it was bloody wars, scandals, poverty and a shameful legacy, including police brutality, massive and unjustifiable mass surveillance... So much for the first 'black' president...

    Legalizing gay marriage is a step in the right direction, but not it did not justify all the atrocities (also of economic nature) that the whole world had to endure with Obama.

    We'll see what Trump does... What you see is not always what you get...

    Hate him. I'd honestly prefer a rock as president. An actual rock, not metaphorical. Some peeps love him, think he's gonna kick out all the Muslims and immigrants, actually want that. Blarg.

    Yes. My one friend refuses to see it, and keeps trying to tell me I'm being ridiculous(this friend knows I'm trans and not straight), but he doesn't know what it's like because he has zero reason to be scared. Meanwhile poor Brooke is afraid someone might kill her just for being who she is.....and that someone like Pence will do everything in his power to legislate her life to a living hell.

    Not the Hillary was perfect, but she at least seemed to be on our side, and even if she wasn't, Tim Kaine was and her appointees likely would be. I feel sick now, I think I'll go cry a little ...

    You know I'm actually okay with trump. I know that might sound crazy since I was convinced Hilary would be the next president. But I do think he will actually do some good things. I don't think he'll do anything with gay rights and I doubt he will do a majority of the things he said he would at his campaigns. I don't want him to get kicked out of office because then Mike Pence will get in and if that's the case then we're really fucked.

    This is pretty much my view. The truth is Pence is the one that's dangerous; he's the one that's threatening to torture people like us, out of his own bigotry. What's more, unlike Trump, Pence knows how the government works. If he becomes the president, he will know exactly how to manipulate people into getting his way. Even more so than Trump.
