Trump vs Bannon and everything that’s going to happen in 2018 in Miami
It’s almost 2018 and Donald Trump is still President of the United States. Let that fester for a minute. But the odds are against the least popular commander-in-chief of all time making it through his second year. As we ring in the new year, here are my predictions on Trump and other major stories that will dominate the next 12 months.
For weeks, the president and his lawyers bragged the investigation into collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign was going to end by now. Yet, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is just getting started. By spring, Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner will be doing the perp walk for his role in the scandal. Trump will face impeachment, but will resign when he finds out Mueller is also planning to go after his daughter Ivanka.
Steve Bannon is going to snitch on little Donald jr. An Everyone in the White House right now little Stevie is a scoring bitch.
In the Sunshine State, Democrats except for Sen. Bill Nelson will finally deliver some big wins. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine is going to beat ex-Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the governor’s race. And State Sen. Jose Javier Rodriguez will claim Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s congressional seat. But Nelson is going to lose to Rick Scott, Trump’s pal and lame duck governor, by one point. It won’t matter though. The Democrats will take back the U.S. Senate in 2018.
Colin Kapernick is going to win his grievance against the NFL and the 32 team owners for conspiring to keep him out of the league because he ignited the player protests during the national anthem. The protests won’t stop when the 2018 season begins, forcing the owners to publicly condemn social injustices against minorities and police officers who protect bad cops.
Derek Jeter and his partners will look to sell the Miami Marlins after enduring a full season of public outrage over their decision to sell off all the good players on the team for nothing. A majority of season ticket holders will refuse to honor their commitments because they aren’t going to pay Major League Baseball prices to watch a farm team play. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins will move up in the NFL draft to select a franchise quarterback, ending the Ryan Tannehill era. The franchise will still fail to make the playoffs in 2018.
Real estate market
Condo sales continue to tank, but it is still too expensive for regular Miamians to buy their own homes. And the new apartment buildings with micro-units in Wynwood fail to attract Millennials to live there. All those New York real estate tycoons that invested in the neighborhood will likely go bankrupt. Miami Commissioner Joe Carollo will attempt to pass laws to prevent foreigners from buying up all of the city’s poor neighborhoods like Allapattah, Little Havana, Brownsville and Liberty City.
