Hillary Clinton, the Democrats and the political establishment are reeling after the news that Donald Trump won over the electoral college by a mere landslide and is now the 45th President Elect of the United States. After the announcement by Fox News and other news outlets that he had won Trump gave a acceptance speech with his family and advisers by his side.
President Obama and Secretary Clinton both called up Donald Trump to congratulate him on his win. The President invited him to the White House this Thursday to discuss the upcoming transition plan before he arrives next year.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said,
“Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the President identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the President-elect is the next step.”
President Obama is expected to make full comments today around noon time while Clinton is mere moments away from giving what is expected to be a concession speech. Trump and his camp have no meetings or assignments as they put together a Cabinet of people for his administration.
To screaming supporters in NYC Trump said to the American people there and watching,
“Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division — have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.”
He did not mention his calls to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States, his desire to have Mexico pay for a wall along our border as well as his other controversial policy ideas. The man known for his inflammatory tweets sent out his first tweet as President Elect when he said,
“Such a beautiful and important evening! The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before.”
There has never been a candidate like Donald Trump to win the presidency before. Someone with absolutely no military or political experience. Which many pundits are saying was his appeal to many voters. The fact that he was not an establishment candidate willing to challenge the status quo unlike any other before.
Now only time will tell if he stays true to the large and “bigly” things he promised Americans he would make sure they had.
