Nobody has any real idea what President-elect Donald Trump has planned.

It is quite possible he himself doesn’t know.

As President-elect we are all forced to take him seriously, but the consequences of taking him literally or not are so wide that most are in a state or confusion.

However, if we look at the situation more closely there may be method to the madness and some potential hints on where we go from here.

Candidate Trump was incredibly successful in covering up his weaknesses by, in effect, making the US election a referendum.

The election was a referendum on the status quo and a vote for Trump was a vote for change, not a vote for the huge range of messages and proposals he put out.

Indeed, by putting out so many messages and controversial statements he attracted different voters for different reasons. So the blue collar worker may have voted against free trade, but the Pennsylvanian Latino may have voted against health insurance premiums jumping 50%. The extreme proposals echoed his negotiation style as he made a bold first step, then walked it back, also allowing voters to justify ignoring his more odious statements.
