Trump’s Triumph

Trump’s Triumph

Donald Trump has shocked America and the world by his remarkable Presidential win, with superseding electoral votes while his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton faced an unexpected defeat. Hillary’s hopes of becoming America’s first woman president were harshly torn though she has done an amazing job.

“Now it is time for America to bind the wounds of division,” Trump told a cheering crowd of thrilled followers in the early hours of Wednesday, 9th of November, in New York, promising to work with Democrats in office.

Perhaps, it was people’s dissatisfaction, resentment, fear and thoughts of insecurity that gave an impetus to Donald Trump’s election campaign. On the contrary, people and political analysts who mistook him and labeled him as ‘daunting’ are puzzled by his success.

Obviously, Trump’s victory connotes people’s preference, and those who voted Trump were convinced at what he intensely exclaimed, promised and avowed during the election campaigns. He wasn’t adept in policy-making or politics, but he relayed, with rhetoric, his agenda. Ah, he has done everything rigorously with his supporters!

Yea…when everything is in mayhem, then either you wrongly convince masses with whatever means or confuse them with your tricky demonstrations. That’s how sometimes politics works…and it’s called dirty politics because, with little openness, everything looks muddling.

People believed Trump, and what they wanted they got it. Perhaps, for this change, people wanted their own freedom and election results itself gave them the champion of their choice.

Now, with the election outcomes, the game is over. Neither America can revert itself nor blame anyone. Any deviations or sarcasm will be an absurdity. Now, it’s time for the nation, at the helm of responsible leadership, to begin transition from dissatisfaction to ease.

Now, the whole world has acknowledged him, endorsed his Presidency, and global leaders are sending their hearty wishes to him.

Now, the BIG question is: What will be the implications of the election result on the US and the world, and will Trump, with his Presidency, translate his campaign promises to reality by imposing tougher governing policies?

Shaken by Trump’s victory, people are left with steep predictions. What’s going to come ahead? What will be missing? What will be America’s new alliances? What new foreign policies and changed diplomatic priorities will emerge? Will there be any new predictions from political, economical thinkers and pundits?

People were so flabbergasted that last night, on 9th November, that they began variety of search queries on Google  like “I want to move to Canada” and “Move to Canada”. At once, the Canadian immigration website went down, overwhelmed by traffic from dejected Americans seeking to learn about moving north. However, the site is now functioning.

Anything good from Donald Trump, the President-elect, will make American citizens proud and cheery. 

Perhaps, if he thinks of bettering human lives and to make American democracy a real paradigm across the world, then he ought to count his triumph as an ordeal and bounty, and by being an able, just leader he can relish his post and be an ally to the world leaders.

Let’s witness what Donald Trump and Republican Congress can achieve for America after eight years of a Democratic President and how they redefine America as a ‘just, wise and impartial nation’.

Good luck America!

Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence.

Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.

-Franklin D. Roosevelt

As I've mentioned in other pieces, Mohammed, what the Republicans intend to do now is dismantle anything created by Obama and push their own agenda. With three houses under Republican rule, that should be easy, and we saw how they started, a day after the election, pressing to get the XL Keystone pipeline passed. Trump believes climate warming is a "hoax." He'll push for more oil, desecrating Native lands and building stockpiles he can use in negotiations with other countries (essentially, we don't need your sticking oil, we've got plenty of our own). The Republicans will dismantle the EPA and anything else that stands in the way of what they consider progress. It'll send stock averages up for a while, but citizen discontent is only just starting. Wait for the shit storm.

Even as an agnostic I still say: that may be our country's only hope.

Simple Words have the power to heal or to destroy...

As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
-Gore Vidal

Of all the weapons of destruction that man could invent, the most terrible-and the most powerful-was the word. Daggers and spears left traces of blood; arrows could be seen at a distance. Poisons were detected in the end and avoided. But the word managed to destroy without leaving clues.
-Paulo Coelho

Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.
-Yehuda Berg

Part 2:
You have lived many years within that world of politics David and may be a bit hardened to the impact it has on the emotions of the people. With all the psychological studies done on the impact of stress, anger, and fear on the human psyche, why is it that it is only used to manipulate the voting public and not used to understand the ramifications of what it does to the people.

I stand by my belief that he does not deserve to be the leader of this country, does not deserve the benefit of the doubt, and he may have set in motion events that America will pay for with the blood of its citizens and our military, and for what? I would really like to know his motivation for running in the first place if it was for his own ego boost. He has made clear that he does not believe in the American Ideal or even the American Dream. His dreams include only himself.

Let me make another point clear; I think the entire election should be nullified. I am not a fan of Hillary, she was the least of two evils. I think we should set precedent and have another election with those two NOT being allowed to run. I know that will never happen, I know we are stuck with this blustering idiot, but that does not mean I have to support or stand by him just because he "knew how to win", too bad he didn't and still doesn't know how to be the leader of the Free world.

#22 I liked your comment David but wanted to take some time to contemplate my answer. I do not agree with the violence that has occurred, I dream of being as strong and passive as Dr. King, but I still have that temper to work on!!. I'm angry at the election results, that is obvious but it is because of my admiration for leaders like Dr. King that I say that what has occurred this year is an insult to the American ideals and Trump made a mockery of all that minorities and women have fought against for decades if not centuries. He will never be my president and never earn my respect because of his words and actions. Why? because we will now get political spin by the professionals while the truth of his character is burned into our memories by this horrendous election. This nation is not a place where people should live in fear of being taken from their homes, being loaded on to buses, and shipped out of the country like cattle.
Whether it was blustering talk or not, they apparently do not understand that, as my young Hispanic man illustrated by being afraid to come to a community event. MANY do not understand that it was hot air, if it was, that he was spewing across the airwaves, around the globe. The terrorist camped out around the world may not understand that it was hot air, those suffering from mental illnesses may not understand that it was rhetoric and 'just campaigning' to win bullsh**. Those are some of the people that concern me. We live in different times David, where words misspoken can bring disastrous consequences to our country and our people. So the question is: Is our country going to be given time to show it was all bullsh** or will we suffer the consequences before he is even inaugurated? End Part 1
