Anyone who has followed Trump knows that he can say anything, and contradict himself in the same sentence. He is clearly pragmatic. Yes, he promised to build a wall and deport all illegal immigrants, but he also promised to investigate the Clinton foundation and put Hillary Clinton in jail. His generous remarks about Hillary in his acceptance speech suggest that she has nothing to worry about.
Now that he has proven to white America that he hears their voice, who is better positioned to betray the racist elements of it? What Republican is better positioned to pass immigration reform?
Trump is a very skilful conman, a master manipulator. It is definitely possible that he could use his powers to do good. Those of us who voted for Hillary and are horrified at the possible dangers of a Trump White House should do everything in our power to support him if he makes honest attempts at governing, and we should be open to compromise. We have railed against the GOP strategy of making sure Barack Obama had a failed Presidency. We must not adopt this strategy ourselves, now that the shoe is on the other foot.
Trump wants people to love him. A happy Trump is a lot less likely to accidentally start a nuclear war.
