Donald John Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States on Tuesday in a stunning win over Hillary Clinton. The triumph for Mr. Trump, 70, a real estate developer- tuned- reality television star with no government experience – who has also displayed a disgusting demeanor and stance on pertinent issues from trade to immigration- comes to no surprise. Trump won with 289 electoral votes compared to 218 for Clinton, according to CNN projections.
I checked the polls after the fact, optimistic about a progressive future with endless possibilities, but it did not involve Donald Trump as our next President. But Hillary Clinton conceding a defeat to Donlad Trump made sense. After Clinton’s campaign Chairman, John Podesta stated that “several states are too close to call so we’re not going to have anything more to say tonight,” in an urge to tell supporters to go home, we should have have known the “real” American agenda.
The fact is we are dealing with issues that stem further than foreign policy, education, trade, the environment, immigration and economy. We are dealing with institutionalized racism and a mentally brainwashed society with a focus on entertainment and social media. Because if you think about it, that’s all this campaign has ever been– racist and sexist entertainment.
So, what now you ask?
If we are looking solely at the votes, polls showed that Hillary Clinton maintained a modest presidential edge. However, the overlooked results demonstrated an act of power by a large number of white blue-collar and working class voters who believed that Donald Trump was the improbable champion. Small rural states, showed their unwavering concern with the economy, an issue that voters blindly believe Trump will rectify in the next 4 years. But it was the left-Democratic voters from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin who were reluctant about the idea of standing behind a white woman which ended her run. There goes gender progress. Thank you misogyny! But back to current reality.
As he accepted the great feat ahead to “Make America Great Again,” he said:
“Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division. It’s time for us to come together as one united people. It’s time.”
Comical and unbelievable, Mr. Trump is our new president and will take the oath of office on Jan. 20. As he prepares to take office, we should focus our attention on his dozen of foreign business entanglements and refusal to release tax returns. Let’s not forget his recent history of not paying federal income taxes. The truth is many Americans contain monstrous gaps in their understandings of finance and this election proved it. Having donated handsomely to both parties, our main focus should be on his belief system and allegiance to one political party.
Let’s not forget his racist, bigoted opinion on ethnic minorities and underrepresented demographics in office. His entire political platform has left us nervous, confused and offended. And now, we have the brainwashed American people to thank for the next 4 years that will shift the entire establishment as we know it. We’ll see where the “American” loyalty lies in the near future. Good luck America. Now, every white male billionaire can become President of the United States.
