Since winning the election, the first thing he is seen to do is: Work to bail out a bloated, hopeless, loss-making corporation Second thing: Cancel a free trade agreement with a third world country (way to help the poor and disadvantaged, stop them making a living from exports!)

Time will tell, but the early signs are hardly encouraging.
