So, this thing happened, huh? Donald Trump is the elected president to assume office in a couple of months. And although a couple of months ago I said he will be the next president of USA, I hoped until early this morning that I would be wrong.
I wanted to see a woman president. I wanted to see someone who would stand up for minorities of all kinds, defend the LGBT community, care about African-American lives and work hard to bring down the walls of prejudice and stereotypes. I dreamt of someone well-versed in international politics and being genuinely able to navigate the complicated political apparatus at home and abroad. I hoped for someone who would stand up for USA’s allies around the world. I wanted Hillary Rodham Clinton, who albeit her faults was talking the talk and walking the walk in these directions. Instead, we all got Donald Trump. Not only you but so did the rest of the world.
Candidate Trump has won fair and square. He played by the rules. The new rules. Now, hold on and don’t drop your jaw!
