Change is in the air with the election of Donald J. Trump as president of the United States. As a billionaire real estate developer, Trump is truly an outsider in the world of politics, and now he is the holder of the highest office in the land.
His victory took many people by surprise, especially because critics doubted his campaign’s success since he first announced his candidacy more than a year ago.
Beginning on Jan. 20, 2017, the hard work begins for the new president. Here are seven things Trump's win means for America:
1. Tax cuts across the board – “His tax plan is one of the most dynamic and pro-growth tax plans out there,” says Merrill Matthews of the Institute for Policy Innovation, according to TheStreet.
