What Would Happen If Trump Becomes President?
Just read The Boston Globe's satirical front page.

What would America look like if Donald Trump followed through on his campaign promises? A nightmarish dystopia of mass deportations and economic crises, so says The Boston Globe this morning.
As part of its 'Ideas' section, the newspaper ran a satirical front page yesterday set exactly one year from now imagining the consequences of a Trump presidency. The paper called it "the front page we hope we never have to print.”
Using direct quotes from Trump on the campaign trail, Globe reporters predicted a Trump administration would embark on a trade war with China, causing prices in the U.S. to skyrocket. Policies against undocumented immigrants would lead to mass deportation camps. Military forces would defy direct orders to kill ISIS members' families.
But it doesn't stop there. Chris Christie would be Trump's attorney general. Megyn Kelly would be blacklisted from the White House and forced to report on the president from afar. Trump would insult the Chinese president's wife by naming his dog after her. And, of course, the wall.
Perhaps the best line is hidden towards the bottom of the page:
"A Trumping to Remember," the president's first romance novel, was yanked from the shelves after the publisher acknowledged portions were cribbed from a May 1986 edition of Penthouse.
