With all the issues in the US your really not going to base your decision on that are you?

Part 121, 135, and 91 Corporate Pilot

Does not matter... the President is not involved in such matters. It's the FAA, land owners/managers and local idiots who matter.
The President can issue executive orders to any agency directing their rules and regulations, unless said rules and regulations are actual law. Once that EO is issued it can take years in court to have it removed.
Part 107 only applies to commercial use. Why take action against a small minority and not all UAV use in general? It makes no sense for the President to do this.Since the parameters for the 107 aren't part of law (the dictate is as I understand it) they could be changed by an EO without you having a chance to sneeze first.
If attempting to regulate UAV private UAV use is _anywhere_ on the President's radar, we have bigger issues.I think it is a very relevant thing to people who care about flying UAS.
The FAA is _already_ in charge of UAVs. There is simply no reason for a President to become involved in such a small matter.
And yet they could. Politicians will pander to their constituents simply to look like they are doing something. Never underestimate what any politician will do, or where they might turn their focus.
