This is the worst possible outcome for our country. A president Romney? That would have been bad. A president McCain (with a vice-president Palin)? Equally bad. But President tRump? That is a disaster.
On top of that, the Republicans retained control of the House and
Senate. It's true that their margins were narrowed. But for at least the next two years the best we can hope for is no change. The worst? Well - every stock market is tanking
because they know what's coming. The value of the U.S. dollar is plunging worldwide
. For those who voted for tRump - have you checked your retirement accounts this morning?
In numerous states, in the electoral vote and the popular vote - it was essentially a tie. We don't do ties in presidential elections though. We wanted Clinton to win; we hoped for a blowout. Instead, we are looking at 4 years of President tRump. The rest of the world is shocked and concerned. Our place as a beacon on the hill is greatly diminished as we have elected a misogynist, racist, ignorant bully with no clue as to how the government works.
