Indeed, the end of America as we know it is upon us. Why else is Twitter filled with #RipAmerica hashtags? The potential disasters that could arise under Donald Trump are just as shocking as Trump getting elected in the first place.
American values are already going by the wayside. Inequalities will widen. Even more hate will spread. All kinds of progress will not only be halted but will be entirely reversed. That includes progress made for women to have control of their own bodies, as well as curbing the damaging environmental effects of climate change. Race relations will suffer along with religious freedoms. Constitutional rights will be lost. A Great Depression and another World War all loom as potential disasters in the distance.
We see how America got it wrong here. It can be easy to confuse Trump with the more kind-hearted lasagna-loving Garfield (spoiler alert: more jokes poking fun at Donald Trump’s need to tan are upcoming). Ahh, Donald Trump. More like Donald Dump, because America is, quite possibly, going to utter sh*t. Or, if you prefer, going to hell in an Ivanka Trump handbag.
15 More Income Inequality
14 World War Three?
Since Donald Trump has come into power, it has been said that the chances of the US being in a third World War have increased. Of course, it is Trump we're dealing with. Part of that has largely to do with the fact that Trump may pull out of NATO because he believes it to be useless, essentially. Then there's also his temper.

12 Millions of Jobs Lost
11 A War On Women
Donald Trump will be (figuratively) grabbing women by the you-know-where. This is yet another way in which Trump will reverse years of social progress, continuing and even worsening the war on women. First of all, Trump doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose. And Trump knows best.
In his first television interview since becoming president, he said he will appoint pro-life judges, which means that it will be increasingly likely that Roe vs. Wade will be overturned and women’s reproductive rights will regress back to where they were years ago. This will be especially true in states like Texas where laws are already in place to reduce these rights. People will have to travel to get abortions, but not everyone will be able to afford it. Back-alley abortions will increase. Trump will have a hand in the death of many women.
10 Minority Groups Uprooted
9 Sick People Struggling To Survive
8 No More Oreos (Yes, The Cookie)
7 A Great Depression (As In Lots Of Sad People)
6 An Actual Economic Depression Too
5 Environmental Devastation
4 Hate Crimes & Decreased Racial Equality
A Trump presidency means a loss of America’s core values. Equality between men and women is diminished, for one. Prejudice, racism and flat-out hatred for other people (Mexicans, Muslims, the LGBT community, women) are on the rise. You can’t deny this because it is already evident in what has been dubbed “The Trump Effect.” Harassment, hate speech and hate crimes are already taking place in America and this is only the beginning. The damage is already done and it will culminate in the years to come. Make America Hate again.
3 Literally, Any Disaster Could Happen
Again, we return to Donald Trump’s unpredictability and the devastating consequences of his sociopathic personality in general (not our words). First of all, none of us knows exactly what Trump will do at any given moment. Sometimes he starts sentences and we don't even have a slight clue of where he's going with it. He's like Michael Scott, from The Office, in a sense, but not in a funny way. If we can't even figure out where he's going with a sentence, what can we expect he will do with the world?
2 The Worst Violent Attack
1 The Damage Can’t Be Undone
All of this is to say that the majority of the damage that could arise in the above scenarios won’t be able to be undone. President Trump may only be in power for a maximum of eight years, and him getting re-elected after four even seems like a bit of a stretch, but the effects of his presidency could be permanent. The damaging effects of ignoring global warming, for example, would mar our planet forever. The damage to immigrant families and their very lives would change forever. The thought is not only frightening, something out of a Dystopian novel, but also equally sad. Not only will Trump change America forever but he will also change our very existence. We don't know what a post-Trump America will look like, but it will almost certainly end with us desperately searching for a way to "Make American Great Again".
