Wednesday morning was a very anticipated day considering the fate of the American people would be decided following the results of the presidential election. The 45th president of the United States is no longer a mystery as Donald Trump took the White House with an unexpected victory. The states of Ohio, Florida and North Carolina were the ones that made the difference in the end considering they were expected to give their trustful vote to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The day of November 9, 2016 will certainly go down in history as the event that split a nation, being reason of great happiness for some and of confusion, anger and disappointment for the others.
People though they knew hoe the elections would end but the tables were turned. The unexpected victory of the Republican representative was a shock for the Hillary campaign team as well, which were confident they had the victory in their pockets. This is also the reason why it took a while for Clinton’s campaign manager to concede the election at first but in the end, Hillary herself took the decision to concede in the very early hours on Wednesday.
Following the election results many were unsure of whether Donald Trump was fit for the position or not considering the many scandals he was involved in and all of the wrongs he was accused of during his entire campaign. The newly elected president made headlines on multiple occasions, and the topics were often racist and sexist, enraging people with his immoral and not very president-like behavior.
After assuring his victory, Trump changed his discourse and decided to be diplomatic for once. Therefore he decided to speak nice words about Hillary Clinton who he previously called “crooked”, saying “We owe her a debt of gratitude and I mean that very sincerely.”
It was a sad night for the Clinton supporters who came in thousands to cheer her on in Manhattan but ended the night in tears. At the same time, Trump’s voters were not as diplomatic as their leader and chanted “Lock her up!” referring, of course to Hillary Clinton.
Former president Barrack Obama pretty much predicted the results, telling the people in a speech before the election took place that “No matter what happens, the sun will rise in the morning.” In a very simple way, Obama tried to tell everybody not to lose hope, regardless of the results.
