Q&A, Trump Edition

There’s only a little under two months until Donald J. Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, and after an election that saw him take the electoral college but lose the popular vote, many are concerned about the results of a Trump presidency.

With this in mind, we here at the Index (all one of us) would like to assuage some fears in the form of a simple Q&A.
