Trump is Triumphant

I am so very glad this is over.  I am so very glad that Hillary Clinton’s political career is over.  On the other hand, I am so very disappointed that a more reasonable candidate did not make the cut to be the Republican front-runner and ultimate victor.  But give Trump his due!  Despite all the naysayers he persevered, and is now the 45th President of the United States.  Congratulations, Mr. Trump!

Looking for the positive in this outcome, among the things that I find quite delicious are the dismayed outcries from the Hollywood elites (may those who promised to leave the USA if Trump won soon fulfill their vows!), and the mainstream media.  I am so happy that George Soros, even with all his money given to leftist political causes, failed to buy the election for Hillary. The Washington Post’s headline particularly gives me a jolt of schadenfreude:

The Impossible Has Happened

“Well, water is flowing uphill, pigs are flying and snowballs are accumulating in hell. In other words, it looks like Donald J. Trump is going to be president of the United States.”

…and…

“The left clearly needs to rethink the death of the Republican Party. “

Actually, they were whistling past the graveyard on the subject of the GOP’s death.  And didn’t notice the gravestone labelled RIP Dems.

What is the election doing internationally?

The Economic Times of India lays out a mostly positive outlook on what Trump’s election will mean for that country.  Significantly, they write:

Although Trump wants to put stricter immigration rules, he also says he wants to woo Indian entrepreneurs and students to the US.
Trump criticised China throughout his campaign, described it as one of the US’s top adversaries. That could make for an advantage to India.
He said he would label China a currency manipulator and impose heavy tariffs if China didn’t agree to rewrite trade agreements.
He labelled Pakistan as semi-stable and a safe haven f ..

Reuter’s has posted the article, “World in shock as Trump surges to victory in the US“.  Germany’s Defense Minister is dismayed and thinks that the Pax Americana is over.  Many international leaders are apparently completely flummoxed over what Trump might do.  I will confess, I have no clue, either.

Suffice it to say, we definitely live in interesting times!
