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!
