I actually lowkey feel safer when thinking about moving back to the US, now that Trump has won presidency. Gives a voice to the people who the liberals shunned so badly, and I say this as a liberal.

Trump youngest son looked so tired when his dad was doing his speech. Poor lad just wanted to go to bed!

I find her much more calculating and intimidating than him.

What rot, it was about immigration and had nothing to do with his money. Blimey the Clintons have plenty of that and more power. Strange conclusion.

..they have I think been talked about quite equally, but they're just so different is all in terms of 'controversial' media talking points and it's very much been more a media thing for this election particularly...the general public react to media but they don't always have the same interest to research, do you know what I mean..?..(not in any defence of her because I personally have to see qualities I admire in someone and have respect for them..)...but I do sometimes wonder the general depth of corruption that could always be prevalent in USA government..(and the same with many governments obviously..)...could it be no better or no worse than with Hilary, but the only difference being the front-person themselves representing something that is warmed to, so over-looked/accepted as it were...but with the Clintons, Hilary and Bill..they're so disliked that it's been delved in and exposed because of their lack of popularity...

But there is numerous genuine tape and video footage evidence around Liam which irrefutably shows Hillary Clinton being xenophobic and racist - about Mexicans and Blacks among others - and SHE wanted a wall between he USA and Mexico long before Trump espoused it.

She also is STEEPED in wealth.

So refreshing to hear a voice of genuine reason and moderation among all the hysteria on both sides.

I've always said that Americans deserve everything their *******ed Political system offers and this totally proves my point.

What type of leader should your typical slightly fat, slightly racist, money obsessed American have ?

Well let me think hmmmn.... oh yes I think exactly the one they just elected.

Enjoy.............

I only hope that Trump is so media-savvy and surrounded in the past 30 years by progressive attitudes that some of it will have rubbed off on him. I don't think I've seen anything directly homophobic from him in the campaign, but of course his Veep is a huge problem. That said, I don't think the LGBT are in danger. Women... yeah this is a kick in the teeth to them but he does seem at least apologetic of what he said and I'm not sure what else can come that'd increase his sexist reputation, so that's a positive I guess? good god at the idea of Melania being a first lady though...

Obviously the biggest worry with him is race relations, and standing aside and letting Russia do what they like. But then, the countries Russia seem to be quietly annexing seem 80% in favour of rejoining Russia anyway.

I don't think Trump being in power will be any more miserable than the deadlock in the houses that preceded him, however the Republicans having total control now (as I understand?) is worrying. I do hope he keeps his word and delivers jobs to those rural states that are desperate for them. I just don't really see how he's going to have the power or the insight to achieve it.

Today people are really revealing their true feelings towards my country. Trump overcame the media, the establishment, everything to be president and he worked very hard for it.
