After 8 years of Democratic Party Presidency, USA and Indian IT industry is going to experience a Republican President. Donald Trump in many campaigns suggested that he is not for IT outsourcing or immigration. With him becoming one of the world’s most powerful presidents brings chills to the Indian IT Industry.
Indian IT industry is around $150 Billion and 60% of software is exported. The previous Republican president, George Busch was favourable to outsourcing IT to India. But not very sure about this new Republican president. Democratic President Obama did have some tussles with immigration during his first term tenure as a president, but during the second term he developed relations with India to win the election.

This new president is rich, eccentric and has a ton of ego. South Park, a TV show known to cover timely, parodied coverage of hot topics has rewritten their latest episode to Donald Trump’s favour.
