As Inauguration Day fast approaches, Donald Trump has revealed few details about his plans, stymying efforts to forecast his presidency. Aaron Slodounik argues for a new way to predict Trump’s intent: examine his written and verbal statements as a dataset using the same method that was applied to Hillary Clinton’s emails. Watchdog groups and others researchers will likely find a pattern of malice against identity groups, which is illegal, he writes, since the First Amendment does not protect “actual malice”—as defined by the Supreme Court—or bias.
