This is a place to deposit political predictions you'd like to make in public, so that they can be easily found and referenced in the future. Thus, it is not a discussion thread; discussions of predictions should take place in other threads as conversations proceed. Explicit clarification questions and answers are fine, but "Why do you think that?" expositions should occur elsewhere so as not to clutter the repository. Predictions should be narrowly defined; testable with publicly available information at all times; have an explicit date range; and refer to events, people and places explicitly so as to leave no doubt of resolution; and they should be numbered sequentially so that they are easier to find at later dates. Edits must be clearly marked and original text preserved through the use of strike-throughs if the prediction is modified. Please avoid the use of generalities - "The President will change his mind on this topic" is less useful than "The President will change his policy from yes to no on this topic", because the latter prevents a tiny change from being claimed as success. Failed predictions should be marked in bold at the top of the post via an edit, leaving the rest intact.
I have stated in the past that I believe that President Trump will be impeached. I will put that here as the following prediction:
Impeachment charges will be placed against President Trump before the first anniversary of his inauguration.
Let's see your explicit, testable, dated predictions, large and small, about politics in the US and other countries. What's going to happen, and when? Let us know what you expect.

11/26/2016 - Not in thread - Pizzaddict commented "This, or he will impose a 35% tariff on imports from Mexico and say the money is going towards the wall, thus Mexico is paying for the wall." I feel this is close enough to warrant the notice.
