With the New Year (and inaugural) approaching, let’s look into your crystal ball.

Donald Trump promised to “drain the swamp” as new president.  He is already making waves as President-elect by breaking diplomatic protocol by calling Taiwan against 40 years of the One China policy, he is disputing that Russia influenced the US election, he has nominated white supremacists for cabinet positions (Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions), is nominating millionaires and billionaires for cabinet positions, among other controversial picks.  It seems that Trump has been able to unite Democrats and Republicans who, despite his objections, want to look into Russian hacking of the election.  For someone who proposed ethics reforms, it seems he is already having ethical problems.
