How will a Trump Presidency Affect the Economy?

No matter where your political leanings lie, one thing that we can all agree upon is that President Donald Trump’s road to the White House was a controversial one.

While he offended many along the way and while many of his proposed social policies appear to be a bit crazy, I don’t think that his economic policies are necessarily off the wall.
