The tycoon arrives at the White House with the massive support of white voters dissatisfied with the elites.
Republican Donald Trump has shocked the United States and the world by defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton in the United States presidential election. Trump, a populist with a xenophobic and anti-system speech, will be the next president of the United States. With massive support from white Americans dissatisfied with political and economic elites, and uneasy about accelerated demographic changes, Trump broke the prognoses of the polls and achieved a victory that pushes his country into the unknown. Nobody like Trump knew how to understand the joke with the establishment, with which Clinton was identified. The global populist wave has reached the White House. The current president, Barack Obama, has already called on Trump to congratulate him and invite him to the White House on Thursday to begin the transition into office.
“The forgotten men and women of our country will no longer be forgotten,” Donald Trump said in his victory speech in New York. The president-elect, who oaths the office Jan. 20, praised Clinton and said it is time to heal the country’s divisions.
The world was hoping to see the first woman in the US presidency, after having an African-American president. The unexpected happened. Voters chose a demagogue, a man who has revived some of the darkest traditions in the country, who has placed insult and disqualification at the center of political discourse, an admirer of Vladimir Putin who feeds on reformulating the international alliances of EE UU and launch a challenge to the southern neighbor, Mexico.
From north to south, from east to west, in states that voted for Democratic President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and in Republican states, from the Donald Trump tsunami, a combination of rural vote and white labor vote, swept the Sophisticated strategies of the Democratic campaign and nullified the effect of the Latino and minority vote for Clinton.
