Clinton suffers the poll deCLINE while Trump becomes the new TRAMPoline for America being elected the 45th president of the USA on the 9th November.
He mainly expresses the interests of the representatives of working class of America, performes against the national minorities, stresses upon family traditions….
One may say that Trump is neither the democrat nor the republican indeed. Consider the relation of the latters toward Donald Trump in recent times: during the divisive campaign, Trump was the target of sharp disapproval, not just from Democrats but from many in his own party, as Press TV states.
Trump holds an anti-establishment position, which is gaining force in momentum now. He mainly supports the interests of businessmen, working class of America, and those people who were offensively called “rednecks” by Bill Clinton in one of his speeches before.
“Press TV” has spoken to James Jatras, a former US Senate foreign policy analyst, to discuss the election of Trump as the United States’ next president.
Jatras believes the people who voted for Donald Trump were against a big corrupt establishment in Washington.
“I think it was a vote against Hillary [Clinton] especially given how corrupt and criminal her activities have been but also a vote against [President Barack] Obama, but let’s not forget also a vote against the Republican establishment, a lot of which either repudiated Trump or only grudgingly sort of half endorsed him and now is stuck with carrying out his agenda,” he said.
He also noted the old core of the industrial working class of the United States feels the waste of trillions of dollars in wars by the investor and donor class has undermined their “economic security.”
Donald Trump felt the protest, which existed in certain “strata” of American society and appeared at the right time and in the right place, which one may consider as the essence of “Trump`s genius”. He expressed sincerely what he was thinking about during the debates. Sometimes it sounded fun, sometimes unserious, or sarcastic, or arrogant. But it was truthful. “While Hillary Clinton read her speech from the paper”, and did not seem that much assertive and frank. – the citizen of Virginia, Eugene Crespo told.
That is what people, not reporters, claim. Important to consider the fact that most of the media outlets were working on Clinton`s campaign while Trump did not aim at self-advertising and promotion but rather relied on his own speeches informing public directly about his plans. (See WikiLeaks release in this regard)
In his victory speech, Trump said in regard to Clinton: “We owe her a dept of gratitude and I mean that very sincerely”.
Barack Obama stated in his turn: “Everybody is sad when their side loses an election, but the day after, we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. This is an intramural scrimmage. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first”.
He continued, “This was a long and hard-fought campaign. A lot of our fellow Americans are exultant today. A lot of Americans are less so, but that’s the nature of campaigns. That’s the nature of democracy. It is hard and sometimes contentious and noisy. It’s not always inspiring.”
It is important to note here that female citizens of America have voted mostly for Trump, though some might have assumed that Clinton represents the feminist-like interests and many women would be likely to vote for her.
But facts show that Donald Trump was winning the majority of women’s votes in most of the GOP presidential primaries and caucuses.
Obama said he told his team to “keep their heads up” and encouraged people to stay involved even if they are discouraged by the outcome of the election.
“Sometimes you lose an argument. Sometimes you lose an election,” he said. “We try really hard to persuade people that we’re right, and then people vote, and then we lose. We learn from our mistakes. We do some reflection. We lick our wounds. We brush ourselves off. We get back in the arena. We go at it. We try even harder the next time.”
Sometimes you lose – BUT – sometimes you win, you vote and you win. Many people have been deeply upset due to the election results, but there are also plenty of Americans who voted for Trump and are happy now.
Let`s hope for the better, and believe that with Trump being in captains America will get the new trampoline to achieve international economic, cultural, political success.
Let`s remember another thing: it is hugely important that the government is ruled not only by well-educated and strong person, but morally noble.
How can physically feeble and morally controversial person rule over the country?
It has been well known that Hillary` s health was in huge decline. She has been a woman with serious health issues. What`s more, Hillary Clinton`s recent e-mail affairs and past life, shadowed by her quite amoral tactics, has been subject for strong discussion.
Here is the report based on WikiLeaks release of their series of leaks from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails provided on the very Election Day:
“The Podesta emails have provided further evidence the Clinton campaign rigged the Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton with the help of “neutral” Democratic National Committee (DNC) staff and “autonomous” mainstream media outlets that coordinated together behind the scenes.
The emails revealed the Clinton campaign lied about how early they started her campaign while the Clintons continued the highly-paid speech circuit.”
“A September 2015 email revealed MSNBC host Chuck Todd held a party for Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri. The email provides further evidence that many mainstream media journalists had an unethical relationship with the Clinton campaign. Rather than serving to inform the public, these journalists served the Clinton campaign behind the scenes to elevate their own careers and preserve the status quo. Most of them didn’t even have the decency to admit the truth of their relationships with the Clinton campaign, either.” (!)

Hereby is another report on Clinton`s private life issues.
At the same time, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange defended the anti-secrecy organization on November, 9th against claims that it has been trying to torpedo Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, saying it simply doesn’t have good enough information on Donald Trump or the other presidential candidates to expose them in the same way.
“We cannot publish what we do not have. To date, we have not received information on Donald Trump’s campaign, or Jill Stein’s campaign, or Gary Johnson’s campaign or any of the other candidates that [fulfills] our stated editorial criteria,” Assange said in a statement posted on WikiLeaks’ website.
Reporters claim about amount of hatred outpoured on Trump after the election results. The media are flooded by such news:
massive gathering of protesters descended upon Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan Wednesday night;
“in Chicago, hundreds of protesters marched through the city’s downtown and gathered outside the city’s Trump Tower to express their anger that Trump was elected”;
“protesters also filled the streets in Washington, D.C., and gathered outside the newly-opened Trump hotel”;
in Seattle, about 100 protesters gathered in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, blocked roads and set a trash bin on fire, according to The Associated Press.
But what if Clinton became the president? Won`t we see protestors on the streets? It is obvious enough that both candidates have had supporters and protestors, and the election of both nominees may have had generated the rage on the one side and solemn joy on another.
While some people express their position against Trump in the USA, there are millions of others who are happy with election results and support the new President. However, it is not scrutinized by the media that much because “Media seek sensations”, dealing with human emotions and conflicts, mainly.
There are people who are “for” this or that candidate, and there are people who are against. However, which part becomes the center of attention or the object of media coverage influences the human perception of reality drastically. So, let`s bear that in mind and avoid misconceptions which may appear due to the exposure to such sometimes “biased” information.
While some people express their annoyance, others describe their positive reaction posting comments below articles on presidential elections. Some of the recent ones state: “Trump, I have supported you since the beginning…You listen and connected to the true American people and I thank you… So proud to love to see this change. Trump, thank you.”
And as New York Times latest reports claim: “After decades of worrying about what was good for other countries, they (Americans) decided it was time to worry about what was good for America. And Mr Trump promised to do just that, even if the rest of the world might not like it”.
Ii is important to consider opinion of Trump`s supporter, A.Ramires in regard to Russian and American future relationship, who said that two superpowers working together and struggling against such things as terrorism, for instance, will make the world better than conflicting, as under the reign of Clinton.
So, some of the people feel shock and uncertainty at Trump`s victory, while others are sure in America`s bright future and consider him as “new TRAMPOLINE” for this country and the other world, too.
All in all, the USA chose Donald Trump, and his simple “truthfulness” and “sincerity” are not the least reasons of this human choice.
Trump looks truthful and sounds sincere. But Time will show how true and how sincere he really is….
