President Trump is a bad thing - that's a fact
Share This Article:
Trump has won. We should just accept that and stop complaining. Right? Wrong. The aftermath is only just beginning. It goes without saying that most of the world did not expect Donald Trump - businessman, TV personality and infamous p**sy-grabbing misogynist - to win the Presidential Election. Yet, here we are, with a man who is literally endorsed by the KKK, set to move into the White House early next year. Since Trump’s shock election win, I, along with most people I know, have expressed sheer horror at how the election turned out. I will continue to defend the view that such a bigoted man, with practically no political experience, has no place whatsoever at the helm of a major country, with significant global prowess. However, I’m disappointed at the number of people on social media, both in the UK and America, who have quickly let go of whatever opinions they held before the election and are now blissfully ignoring the grave reality of the situation. Our own Foreign Secretary, Boris, has literally said that European leaders should stop the 'whinge-orama'. Yes, Trump is unlikely to actually carry out many of the ridiculous policies he’s pledged over the past year-and-a-bit; I for one don’t anticipate that President Trump will be successful in achieving his campaign pledge of convincing the Mexican government to fund the construction of a huge wall on the border between Mexico and America. But that’s not the point.
