Apart from causing a worldwide shock, Donald Trump’s victory upped the ante for many of his supporters who had hoped to bring about change in Washington.

In other words, Trump won the 2016 presidential election mostly thanks to his promises to take on the US Establishment. Trump’s supporters, therefore, are watching how their elected leader is going to act, particularly in the first 100 days of his presidency. All this as pressure appears to be building up against the Trump administration in part due to alleged collusion with Russia, which among other things, has led resignation of Michel Flynn, the first national security adviser appointed by the Republican president.

Disregarding many of his controversial campaign pledges, the former real estate tycoon has also called for an overhaul of the American healthcare system by taking on his predecessor’s signature move in the sector, namely Obamacare. But can Trump work around the Establishment to appeal to his voters? Is Trumpcare really better for the Americans?
