So America has a new president. It’s not the person most people were expecting to win. I was expecting Clinton to win but was not very excited about it. Both candidates in my mind were equally poor choices for different reasons. Somehow both parties picked despicable candidates which could explain Trump’s upset victory. Despite trumps sexist and racist rhetoric during the campaign, 42% of women voted for him and 21% of non whites voted for him according to exit polls. Clearly there were larger issues at play here.
Well, there are so many things I could say here but it’s already been said elsewhere. Hopefully the Democrats learned from this and will pick a candidate for 2020 that will unite people instead of divide them.
I do not think Trump will be the leader America needs. But I’m hopeful things won’t be as bad as everyone makes him out to be. Time will tell. I’m willing to give him a chance. I think everyone else should to.
