I have lived in the United States previously, Florida actually; what I don’t think that Canadians understand is the fact Americans are only taught about their country in school. Geography and history are really how the 52 States work, not how the world works. As we criticize, we need to also look at their point of view. If the current system is not working or has not worked, and now we have someone that is promising to make it go away then that gave them hope. For I truly believe it isn’t Trump that they are voting for, it is the promise of change and a big "NO" to the Clintons. I really hope that the culture of the Americans will not lead the next 4 years to hate and individuality as a Country - there is still no "I in team." We as Canadians did the same in our own election, we voiced our concerns about having the same politics as previously and we wanted to change.
Is President-Elected Trump a bully, a racist, and a chauvinist??? Absolutely!
This has been proven over and over again. However, the facts remain that the people have spoken and let this be a lesson to all to never underestimate your opponent as it may just come back and put egg on your face.
I don’t believe in mixing politics with business but there is a valuable lesson to be learned here. It shows that if you truly believe in yourself, you can become President one day. The biggest lesson, though, is to listen to the people for they do have the final voice. This has been a quiet revolution with drastic results. The proof will be in the pudding, so to speak.
Until next time,
