So What Does a President Trump Mean For the Future of Cord Cutting?




donald-trump-cpac-2011Ok this is a slightly different topic than we typically cover, but I wanted to address the sheer number of emails and comments on our social media about the new President. As I am sure most know by now Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States this week.

That has raised a lot of questions and concerns about how a President Trump could affect cord cutting. To try and address these concerns I spent a lot of time going over his proposals to see if there is anything we should be worried or happy about.

After all my research I could not find anything for or against cord cutting in Donald Trump’s proposals. Donald Trump has made no proposals that would address such things as data caps, net neutrality, or other similar policies.

You could say that he is clearly no fan of the media. Some take that as a sign that he will be friendly to policies that would help cord cutters. Others have said he is friendly to business and that means he will be anti-cord cutting.

However, all of this is wild speculation, and if we learned anything this year is that wild speculation is typically wrong. What we do know is he is not like any Republican President the United States has ever had. So it would be unfair to say other Republicans think or did something and try to apply it to President Trump.

So my recommendation is not to jump to any conclusions. As of right now we know nothing, and when you look at the proposed changes in the first 100 days nothing on President-elect Trump’s list will impact cord cutters.
