Despite Silly Opposition, Donald Trump Emerges U.S. President


Despite silly opposition from Pollsters, Blacks, Hispanics and especially the mainstream media who have trolled Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, and thrown all type of nasty accusations his way, results trickling in shows majority of Americans have elected him the next president of the country.

This is coming as Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, prepared her supporters for the unexpected electoral crushing her campaign suffered.

Trump supporters were up in jubilation following his projected early lead over the Democratic nominee.

Clinton, in her Twitter handle, thanked her team, saying she was proud of them.

“This team has so much to be proud of. Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything,” Clinton tweeted as uncertainty cast over her eventual victory among her supporters.

Trump has won  in several crucial battleground states, including Florida and North Carolina, giving the Republican nominee a path to victory. He is also in the lead in democratic strongholds of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Supporters of Clinton watched nervously as healthy leads that had been predicted in polling for much of the past several months appeared to evaporate while the votes were tallied.

A CNN reporter at the Clinton Election headquarters in New York said supporters  were crying  as they streamed out  in despair after they watched the incredible results coming in.

Results of nationwide polling in today’s election show that Mr. Trump has secured more than the 270 electoral college votes to claim victory in a bruising election that some analysts regard as one of the most divisive in the history of the US.

Most presidential polls over the last few weeks had suggested that Mr. Trump would lose to Mrs. Clinton, his Democratic Party challenger. Controversies dogged Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign. He showcased an unorthodox political style and often denigrated his main opponent as well as TV hosts, disabled people, Mexicans, Muslims, and immigrants. A few weeks ago, a tape surfaced in which Mr. Trump was heard boasting of getting away with kissing and groping women.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign was often shadowed by an FBI investigation into her handling of classified information on her private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013. In the end, FBI director James Comey twice announced that the agency found no grounds to file criminal charges against Mrs. Clinton.

The 70-year old Trump was seen as a long shot when he entered the Republican field of presidential candidates last year. But in an often-fractious campaign for the Republican Party nomination, he deployed a flair for edgy political rhetoric and sharp-tongued putdowns of his opponents to break out of the pack.

Mr. Trump became a politically controversial figure when he argued that President Barack Obama was not born within the continental United States and therefore was constitutionally disqualified from serving as president.

The president-elect, who made his fortune in real estate and casinos, won despite alienating immigrants, Muslims and other minority groups in the US. His anti-immigrant platform resonated mostly with white male voters with no college education, but analysts predicted it would doom his prospects for connecting with a broader base of voters. Surprisingly, he cobbled together enough votes from a variety of demographics to claim the election.
