Opinion: The Truth About Trump

As if on cue after the election, those who supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton took to the streets in protest. Burning buildings in Oakland, California and vandalizing vehicles and buildings in downtown Los Angeles, proclaiming that “Love Trumps Hate”.

But what they do not understand is they are showing why America needs Donald Trump — and now we have him as our 45th President.

Trump flipped two of the most “Democratic” states, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. These two state are considered blue because Democrats have won them consistently for the last 40 years. Known as “Blue Wall States”, they  are usually counted as staples for Democratic candidates.

Donald Trump is not a politician but a successful businessman, and this is why he connected with those voters. To move on as a country we need somebody who has spent his life building something up, not tearing things down.

I am feeling hopeful for the country. The beauty of America is that we have extended rights to everyone. Sure there have been some dark times, and right now is one of those times. Caused by the media pushing their agenda in front of people to make some issues more prominent than others

Trump gained 290 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232. And for those who think that since Clinton won the popular vote she is the true winner, the Electoral College represents popular vote. Those are the rules, and in the end, Clinton conceded. It’s over! She lost, and Trump won. It is as simple as that.

For those who are angry because we did not elect the first woman president, we should always think of the important qualifications for any job. Those qualifications are not sex, race, or any other reason beyond who has the resume to do the job. If it seems like Trump is not educated in politics and government, that is one of the main reasons why the people elected him. He is a political outsider who is in it for the people.

Sure, Clinton had 30 years of experience, but this experience led to the deaths of Americans in Benghazi to messing up a simple red reset button for russian foreign relations.

Just look at some of the accomplishments Trump has made over Clinton. Trump was contracted to build the Wollman Rink in Central Park, He only spent under $750,000 of that budget.

This election shows that the American people have had enough of corrupt politicians and lies from the media. This frustration was demonstrated by the media’s outrageous (and wrong) predictions on who would win. And that is why people decided on Trump. They were told from the start that, “Trump won’t make it through the primaries.”“Clinton will definitely beat him, there’s no chance he will win.”

This is not a country in which the media makes the decisions. It is the people who are in charge of that. And this time, the people spoke.
