2016 USA ELECTION RESULT

 

Wow, wow wow! 2016 is a year of surprises!. Donald Trump won the election. I wasn't expecting this result. One big lesson learnt is NEVER BELIEVE THE POLLS. They got it so wrong and this wasn't the first time this year.

 

This is my take on it;

 

I believe there's a political revolution going on in the west. There is something afoot. Globalisation and capitalism has failed the little people, the working class. So was this a protest vote?

 

People are tired of the status quo. Therefore they voted for change. It was the same with Brexit. They didn't care about the risks. They didn't care who was offering that change, no matter how vile or inexperienced he is. People are angry, insecure and worried about their future.

Donald Trump is a smart man. Unlike the establishment/ politicians he saw this fear and tapped into it by offering them simple tangible benefits.

 

As a reality TV star, he knew he had to constantly be in the news, so he became outrageous and shocking enough to get people talking about him. 😳😳

As they say in show businesses, any publicity is better than no publicity. He 'entertained' and made headlines. The media and everyone couldn't stop talking about him. It was a gimmick to gain votes.

 

Now he has won, he has suddenly become calm and cautious about his utterances. Are we going to see a more sedate Donald Trump in future? Is this the real him, or just an act?. If it is an act, then it won't last long. The real Donald Trump will emerge and remain exposed for all the world to see. Unfortunately for him, his divisive words are out there and can't be taken back. Hence the current protests and riots against his election victory.😱😱

 

Anyway l hope for their sakes, Trump provides the jobs and increase spending on infrastructure so his supporters get those benefits they voted and hope for. I hope they do not become the victims of this so called movement. Time will tell.

 

Hmmmm.....interesting times ahead!🤔🤔

 

Thanks for reading this and have a very lovely weekend ❤️
