The wait is finally over!
After a seemingly never-ending campaign filled with controversies and scandals preceding the American presidential election, America has its new president, Donald Trump.
The results were announced early this morning and the news took the world by surprise creating uproar because of the split reactions. The Republican President won key states like Ohio, North Carolina and Florida on his side and won at the polls with a surprising majority of votes. The fore mentioned states were the ones expected to vote for Hillary Clinton and the turn of events assured his victory early on.
Soon after the vote count was over and the decision was final, the new president marched to the White House to pledge his loyalty to the cause of making America great again, just like he has promised during his presidential campaign.
In his victory speech he promised to be “president for all Americans” and also addressed the fact that the country was divided in the elections and said he would make sure to reach out to all those against his presidency in order to “unify the country”.
“Now it’s time to bind the wounds of division. I say to Democrats and Republicans it is time come together as one united people,” he said.
“I pledge to be president for all Americans. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”
Furthermore, President Trump talked about his campaign as if it was a destined movement filled with a diverse group of people “of different backgrounds and beliefs”.
He did not forget to thank his family as well as address how difficult being part of the political game was: “This political stuff is nasty and it’s tough.” He said.
Although his most important opponent in the election, Hillary Clinton did not concede at first, in the end, the worthy adversary decided to call Trump and congratulate him for his victory.
In his speech, the newly elected President made reference to the famous American Dream and so he shared his position regarding international relations, saying “We will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. We will deal fairly with everyone. We will seek common ground, partnership not conflict.”
“America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our destiny.”
