Anyone got a pointer to a primer for non-Americans on just what he can do?

Although his campaign and victory seems to have given swagger to the bullies and trolls, which I admit is a problem even if not a single law changes.
It gives legitimacy to a certain group of folks that are not very tolerant to put it mildly...
