Gordon Mahoney“I hope it will actually bring manufacturing jobs and bring more labor for lower-class citizens. It’s a big market, especially for immigrants. Most of all, I hope they don’t screw over the environment the road road we’re going down.”

Kelsey Stone“I hope that they are going to benefit the American people and realize we’re all in it together, so it doesn’t matter who we are. I hope, as well, that they can bring positivity to the state of our country.”

Tristin Gambrel“I hope they decrease tax on the middle class, increase jobs in the United States, hopefully find a solution for the national debt, and find a way for safety networking programs to not be abused.”

Colin Wilson“I hope the United States is still standing after his presidency, and that they don’t destroy anything. I hope they develop a health care plan that works, and not start a war.”

Kiara Vann“Oh, God. I hope they don’t screw up and make it worse than it already is. I mean, I thought the U.S. was improving, whether that was Obama or not, but I thought it was getting better. But, I don’t think that he knows what he’s doing.”

Marita Nitkiewicz“There was a massive separation because of the election. He embodies the U.S. majority, but majority doesn’t bridge gaps. The election separated everyone; it separated family, friends, and communication with respect. So, in the next four years, I want to see someone who bridges that gap.”

Megan Zienert“I hope they won’t kick people out, like immigrants and disabled people, because I have family who have disabilities, so I don’t want them to get kicked out. And, I hope they make things more peaceful, especially with all the wars and stuff going on at the moment.”
