And, only half of the USA voted for their new president...
Actually less than a fifth of the total American population voted for trump, and once more of the votes are counted, he will probably have received close to a million votes less than Clinton.

..Subsidies will be the least of our worries now..
Yes, but that is
the subject of this thread.
Since trump has displayed a complete lack of any principles, it impossible to say whether the subsidy will be extended, allowed to expire, or be cancelled prematurely by legislation.
But the $7,500 tax credit is and will continue to be completely ineffective as a means of "preserve (ing) the climate for future generations" anyway.
I would say the chances of any effective response to significantly slowing carbon pollution and global heating from vehicle use, such as a carbon pollution tax, can be completely ruled out during trump's reign.
