After the maverick Republican candidate pulled off a shock victory in the race for the White House, the world is now wondering what a Donald Trump Presidency would look like.
Here’s a breakdown of what might happen now the firebrand billionaire has become Commander in Chief.
Trump has promised to start deporting “more than two million criminal illegal immigrants” straight away.
He has also threatened to cancel visas to any country that refuses to accept its people being returned.
So if Britain did not allow the illegal aliens back into the country, none of our citizens would be given US visas.
The White House hopeful has promised a 35 per cent reduction in tax for middle-class families with two children.
He has also proposed a 20 per cent reduction in the business rate.
Trump’s economic plan would move all Americans into three tax brackets, down from the current seven.
The top bracket for couples making more than $225,000 a year would pay 33%; the $75,000-to-$225,000 bracket would pay 25%; and the under-$75,000 bracket would pay just 12%.
Right now, people who make under $75,00o pay a 15% rate, while the top bracket — made up of those making $466,950 — pays 39.6%.
Trump would also cut the corporate tax rate to 15%. It now sits at 39%
That would certainly help Trump’s business . . . if he decided to start paying tax.
The Donald is still guaranteeing to “build a wall” on the US’s border with Mexico and to get its government to pay for it.
His End Illegal Immigration Act would also impose an automatic two-year prison sentence on anyone illegally re-entering the US after a previous deportation.
The Mexican peso went into near free-fall in chaotic trading as new of Trump’s success spread.
The businessman would tear up trade deals, particularly the recently signed Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which lowered tariffs with 11 other nations, including Australia and Canada.
He would also “direct the Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator”.
Trump plans to get rid of Obamacare – the healthcare reform introduced by President Obama which has helped 11million more Americans to afford health insurance.
Opponents of Obamacare say it is too expensive for the middle classes, who do not qualify for subsidies.
The Republican billionaire has said he would recruit NATO to invade strongholds in the Middle East to “knock the hell out of ISIS” and has regularly repeated his belief that Mrs Clinton’s actions as Secretary of State allowed the terror group to grow.
Mr Trump originally promised a ban on Muslim immigration into the US in response to the San Bernadino terror attack in December 2015.
But he later refined his stance and proposed a policy of “extreme vetting” to combat any future terrorism on his watch.
