    Okay, I didn't see that one coming. Did you? (TriumphantTrump)

    Outside of America, we are flabbergasted. At the same time, the one thing on which I agreed with Trump was getting out of Syria. The USA should not be at war with Russia. Still, it should be an interesting soap opera / reality show over the next four years.

    Internationally, we have elitists who have taken, not only the cherry, but virtually the entire cake. This has resulted in most people being more poor than they ought to be. They're tired of being underpaid and holding down 2 jobs.

    So I hated Hillary (supported Bernie), but with all the hoopla, I thought she would win... And you?

    I have renewed faith in the people to see past how the mass media tries to manipulate them at every turn. Every mainstream news source was 100% behind Clinton, and she lost big.

    The democrats played very very dirty. Slandering Trump at every opportunity, faking rape accusations, paying people to start fights at Trump rallies, - and they rigged the DNC, and gave Clinton debate questions ahead of time. I'm so proud that all that corruption failed. Not because I love Trump, but because playing as dirty as the democrats did, it would be horrible for them to have succeeded.

      I don't believe that the Democrats slandered Trump. I think the accusations are real. I think both Hillary and Trump are two of a kind. That said, I wonder how the polls got it all so wrong.

    I am on he record that this will happen.  Contrary to the ruling elites view, the people saw through the lies perpetrated by the main street media outlets.  MSM have colluded with Clinton campaign and lost majorly.

    Yes, look at my comments - I said a landslide for Trump!
    He's got the pulse of the people.
    Americans aren't stupid enough to elect a criminal into office.
    They want change from the liberal cesspool that's in d.c. and the corruption
    We'll see if Trump can pull that one off.
    Hillary killary should be fitted for prison garb.

      I like what Trump's plans are.
      But, I'm more of a "Don't tell me, show me" type of guy.
      He puts hillary killary in jail, cleans up the cesspool in D.C., I'll consider it.
      Until he actually does, I'm skeptical.

      You don't think Trump is a criminal? I thought they were both as crooked as each other in different ways. I still didn't see that coming.

      It's always a lesser of two evils.
      In this case - hillary killary was more evil in peoples eyes.
      I always stated Trump was going to win.

    Nope, didn't see it coming, though the more I think about it the less surprised I am.  I can understand that in part these votes were meant to make a statement, but I wonder if long-term that will make sense.  We shall see.

    I am personally a bit horrified by the whole thing but thankfully I'm sitting up here in Canada with my beloved Liberal government.  I fear for the minorities in the US, however.  I think part of the statement made, whether intentional or not, was that racism ad sexism is acceptable as long as it's a trade-off for government corruption.

    I can only hope that he calms down his sensationalism and divisiveness now that he's actually got the job, and that he actually manages to do something positive with it.  As much as I hate the guy I will gladly give him props if he manages to make America & the world a better place somehow.  That of course means a better place for *everyone*, not just rich white guys.

    I think at the very least it will be an entertaining four years.  Hopefully not at the cost of people's lives.  Good luck, America.  Good luck, the rest of us.
