    History will give America a black eye for letting trump become President, even though the majority of Americans voted against trump.

    Too early to tell. It's only been a country about 230 years and an important country for only about 100 years. For history that's not long enough to tell yet. 

    America is off to a good start, seems to doing pretty well by history's standards but the jury is still out.

    for its good points (Barbary Wars, Spanish–American War, WW1, WW2, having helped Europe to rebuilt, helped building democracies in several states and protected several European countries against the USSR under Stalin, Korean War, Communist insurgency in Thailand, Invasion of Grenada, Cold War in general, Gulf War, Operation Ocean Shield)

    and bad points (genocide of Native American Indians, Slavery, Mexican–American War, Philippine–American War, Banana Wars, Vietnam and Iraq war, International intervention in Libya and supporting many dictators like Pinochet, other South American dictatorships and Mobuto in Zaire while having overthrown democratically elected leaders like Allende and Mossadeq etc.).

    Some involvement of the US is highly questionable like the involvement in the Yemeni Civil War.

      Wars, wars, and more wars - that just about sums up America's contribution to history.

    We will be judged as world beaters, then politically divided until our destruction from within.

    Great experiment in Democracy and fighting for independence. But a sad story when businesses and banks corrupted the government, and the eventual failure of Congress to serve the real needs of the country.

    It will include how kids like you sought answers f/ adults like us when your inquiry required a psychic reading. The category is history ... not fortune telling. However, insert whatever you think here __. I can't accurately predict the future.
