With the recent election of Donald Trump as POTUS, a lot of people have been worried about how this may impact not only the world, but their equity investments. We decided to do an in depth study combining current events, computer science and statistical analysis, to see just how much the Donalds tweets impact various sectors, and markets as a whole. We utilized the programming language Python, and the ability to craft complex algorithms using Microsoft Excel, to find a precise answer to our underlying question of how much impact the POTUS has.
