Regardless of what country, news channel, or social media platform you are on, it will not be lacking negative comments on his fabulous 'do, or fearing world destruction under his reign. Yet, one must remember that this is not a Dictatorship. Donald Trump was elected by the people with a 10% difference in votes against Hilary.

If the people are so unhappy with his position, how did it get there and why?

Trump made really big statements, as well as big promises concerning the minority groups and his desire to eliminate them and make America"good again", and I honestly think that is the reason as to why he won. There are many who simply have not or cannot accept Liberalism wholly, and therefore agree with these statements that he made, even though they probably would not admit to wanting homosexuals being culled at a dinner party or social gathering.

He said and stood for, what the conservatives and traditionalists have been too cowardly to say out loud, in an age that was finally connecting all groups within society as equal. Trump is the change that will put the white, american (man), on top once more and eradicate any competition or threat in pursuing the American Dream.

Perhaps people just didn't think that it would happen? I mean, this man had to get his twitter account removed? For Christ's sake. Everyone probably just took him as a joke from the very beginning and thought that it would be slightly humorous to have a racist, fascist, homophobic, moronic and without a slither of intelligence in his whole body, rapist in one of the most influential positions in the world right now. Now, all of this panic is due to the fact that they now have a racist, fascist,homophobic, moronic and without a slither of intelligence in his whole body, rapist as their President. Well done America. Well done.

I agree.I think that the majority of Americans, those being the conservative, white, middle class, saw this as an opportunity to finally eradicate the liberalism that had been enforced through Obama's presidential term.

He was elected due to the fact that he wasn't a politician, and the people felt like they could relate to him. There is a reason as to why politicians run, and succeed in this field. They actually know what they are doing.

He won by default. Everyone just hated Hilary more.

President-elect Donald Trump's child Eric's establishment won't acknowledge any new cash, in the wake of saying he stresses the gifts could be seen as purchasing access to his dad. The establishment went under examination as of late subsequent to posting an online sale for espresso with his sister Ivanka. 'Battling youth disease is a cause that has been vital to my life since I was 21 years of age,' Eric Trump said.
