It’s not about race or gender. It’s about policy. Far fewer black people voted for Hillary Clinton than Barack Obama, while far more black people voted for Donald Trump than voted for Romney. The mainstream media has been wrong about Donald Trump during this entire election cycle and is wrong yet again when they try to paint Trump’s win as purely for white men.
Donald Trump has repeatedly said throughout his speeches that he wants to work for every American. He even detailed out a plan to go to the inner cities and improve education for predominately black and Hispanic communities. That doesn’t sound like someone who’s looking out only for white men.
It’s not about gender. Donald Trump employs many women within the Trump organization. He employed the first woman to be put in charge of building a skyscraper and his campaign manager is the first female to successfully run a GOP presidential campaign.
If you want to get into the basics, Donald Trump won because people were sick and tired of Barack Obama’s agendas and Hillary’s preservation of them. Just the same as people were sick and tired of George W Bush’s agendas eight years ago and their rejection of John McCain’s continuation of them.
It shouldn’t be such a surprise that a republican win the white house after eight years of democrat control, just like it wasn’t a surprise that Barack Obama won after eight years of republican control under George Bush. After all, who didn’t want ‘hope and change’ after years of wars in the middle east? It is odd then, that any democrats supported Hillary Clinton at all, since she voted for the Iraq war, despite the democrats being the anti war party during the Bush years. So perhaps that plays a part in why she lost.
As far as the economy, bringing back jobs. Americans did not vote for Donald Trump for the things he said. They voted for him for what he has done. Donald Trump is a self made billionaire. After eight years of Barack Obama and a doubling of the national debt, people were sick and tired of it. People need jobs. People want a strong economy. People want education choice. People want lower taxes. Donald Trump has offered all of this. Hillary Clinton did not.
A song played at all of Trumps rallies sings true ‘you can’t always get what you want…but you might find you get what you need.’ America needs Trump right now, despite some of the silly things he has said. When you couple this with Hillary Clinton’s long list of scandals and investigations into her conduct throughout the years, it really shouldn’t surprise anyone that she lost.
So for those who are upset that he won, especially those who are making insinuations of death threats towards him. Knock it off. I’ll bet some of the things you’ve said about him in the last couple of days are far worse than anything he has ever said. We all say stupid things. No one is perfect. But democracy has played out and the American people have decided they want to give this man a chance. So do the decent thing, sit back, relax, breath for a second and watch what happens. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
