Trump wins

History has been created in the United States with the election of real estate mogul and reality television personality Donald Trump — the ultimate political outsider — to the White House.

With the Republican victory, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s hopes of becoming the first woman president of the US were immediately dashed.

Hillary Clinton called her opponent Donald Trump this morning to concede defeat, according to CNN.

The election went down to the wire. In the end, the man behind the successful Trump Empire pulled off a major upset.

On the way to capturing the needed 270 electoral votes, Trump secured a number of crucial battleground victories in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, as several “blue” states, which had successfully ushered Barack Obama into the White House, turned “red”.

The election presented an unusually significant choice for a divided nation. Democrats had warned that Trump, with his rhetoric on race, gender and immigration, would represent a rejection of core American values but Trump was insistent that his campaign represents America’s last chance to drive out a corrupt political establishment that has turned its back on hard-working Americans.

At her last rally in North Carolina, Clinton capped her campaign with the words “Love trumps hate”.

Trump took to Fox News on Tuesday morning to declare his confidence in the outcome.

“We’re going to win a lot of states. Who knows what happens, ultimately, but we’re going to win,” he said. The GOP nominee had also taken aim at polls which showed that Clinton had the advantage.

“I think a lot of polls are purposely wrong. The media is extremely dishonest and I think a lot of polls are phony. I don’t think they interview people. I think they put out phony numbers,” Trump had said on Fox & Friends.

      The fact is they didn’t back Bernie, but I can’t imagine that just because Bernie didn’t win that you would vote for trump instead,then you weren’t listening to anything Bernie said nor did you actually know what he stood for,that’s another problem, people who backed Bernie said they would vote for trump instead,at the end of the day,he got the majority white vote and they expect us to believe they ent racist,righttttt

    America has spoken and elected an outsider to bring about change.The same needs to happen in Barbados. The establishment is not working for the people, politicians have become tone deaf to the ills of the citizens. Next election let your voices and will be hear.

    It seems they backed the wrong candidate in their biased reporting on the american election.
    Perhaps we will see changes in media corruption now?

    His victory was never in doubt.

    The better candidate won but the real winners are the American people. The press without exception rallied around Hillarious (Hillary) but the American public saw thru the whole charade. Next for her is PRISON as President Trump has said on the campaign trail that he is going to lock her, she is so crooked!

    BTW, Peter Wickham has gotten it spectacularly wrong once again. He predicted a Hillarious(Hillary) victory.

    Carson, I am not sure what planet you are living on. The only reason Senator Clinton was not elected is her gender. American would prefer to narcissistic ‎bigot, liar and thief (all those contractors in Atlantic City, that he use bankruptcy to avoid pay) and lunatic into the White House. Welcome to the revival of the Jim Crow days. We have a narcissistic psychopath in North Korea and a narcissistic lunatic in Russia, now Trump. And you are saying that Trump is good for the world? God have mercy on us.

    @ ,Carson C C, hail,hail, on the button, he is the challenge the american establishment dont want , he is not liked in so many other areas , really because he wouldn’t be easy to be corrupt.
    For the black Americans , he is they excuse after 2 terms of Obama and the only thing the blacks have is to read in the early morning press how blacks have been shot or murdered…

    One thing is so plain to see the stupidity of the educated educators who came up all wrong again.. we are going to see change, with this win and Brexit this signal goes to the crooked politicians , the people have had enough…

    This 2016 US ELECTION was a revelation……It successfully exposed and proved NOT TO BE TRUSTED the following enterprises…CNN,,NBC…MSNBC….CBS….ABC….FOX NEWS… NEW YORK TIMES…WASHINGTON POST…THE DAILY BEAST….They all decieved, lied, and in some instances were illegally in collusion…..So blantently biased that the very integrity and credibility of the aforemention have all but imploded…..Their polls were DELIBERATLEY rigged and stacked due to one sided sampling all in an effort to make their smoke and mirrors show EXHIBIT REALITY..
    But with all their smarts, and all their arrogance, the one thing they regretfully overlooked was the POWER of the SOCIAL MEDIA…..They UNDERESTIMATED its ability to EMBOLDEN the populous…..Clinton never saw WIKILEAKS COMING, and worse understimated social media’s exploitation of the same….So while MSM and the rest turned a blind eye to the truth day after day after day after day, FB, TWITTER. INSTGRAM and the like MADE SURE that truth was put out for the WORLD to see
    Below is a US war vet…just one man…putting out videos as news flows….but this one below was done on OCT5th, and very accurately predicted Trump winning, citing the reasons stated before….Your eyes are the best judge at the end of the day, and with Trump consistently drawing huge crowds to his rallys, time and again outnumbered Clinton rallys 10-1…. Perhaps that visual, those optics made it so clear that most folks wanted nothing to do with that corrupt queen!!!!

    This election is a shocker to the rest of the world and some people in the U.S, but is it really? Isn’t it possible that the enemy has already entered through it’s broken down walls, and gaping holes and about to set up it’s own controlling government using the guise of flesh and blood so readily available but naked before the eyes of those without the cloak of spiritual blindness. Reminds me of the days of Samuel and the nation of Israel yearn for an earthly king to rule them and God chose Saul. America continues to rejects God’s law in their earthly courts, it opposed and flogged the good ideals, and actions of their president whose working was aimed at helping and uplifting others. They have rejected and fought valiantly at unraveling the very principles of humbleness, love, fairness, and morality, with haughtiness and pride at the helm. Yet they wanted God to bless them but not to govern them as the head of their nation….perhaps some other?….. These are times to pray, watch as God brings about his purpose through the agenda of world events, don’t lose heart. God is in control, and he love all nations. what he doesn’t stop he allows and it is always for good reasons, maybe this will be the catalyst to bring his people from scattered throughout the world back into their homeland, who knows? These are the end times and world events are changing fast.
