Whatever your opinion of the man, and despite the allegations of Russia’s involvement, Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United states. But throughout his campaign, the Republican made a number of statements that have worried tech fans.
Apart from Twitter, Trump doesn’t seem to care much for the internet and has called for tighter controls and regulations, which are often euphemisms for government spying. He also wants to bring iPhone manufacturing back to the US, which could see the price of the handsets increase, and has threatened a trade war with China. There’s also the matter of that Muslim registry.
For this Weekend Open Forum, we’re asking what effect you think Trump’s Presidency will have on tech users and companies. Are you planning on being more cautious with your online activities now he’s president? Will his policies see the price of goods drastically increase, or maybe even decrease? Could he give the US tech economy a boost?
Whatever your thoughts on Trump and his policies, let us know in the comments below.
