Nobody can know for sure, but at the time of writing bookmakers are favoring Donald Trump to win the presidency in 2024. But what would his victory mean? Some Americans think that his presidency will above all bring in greater financial security and prosperity, and don't want, or expect much else. But both his fervent fans and his critics expect a president who will clean house. This presentation will talk about the radical course Trump might take in respect to migration, the civil service, law and order, abortion, NATO, China and trade. And will take a good look at what, or who, can block him from achieving his agenda.

After his talk James Kennedy will answer questions of viewers.
