Donald Trump will become the 45th president of the United States, a historic victory for outsiders that represents a stunning repudiation of Washington’s political establishment.
President-elect Trump begins graciously, praises Clinton.
“I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on – and it’s about us – on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign,” President-elect Donald Trump began at his victory party. “She fought hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. I mean that very seriously.Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division. He continued: “It is time for us to come together as one united people.”
“Ours was not a campaign, but rather, an incredible and great movement.”
“Every single American will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential,” Donald Trump said in his victory speech. “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our … infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none.”
He added: “We will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us.”
“We will get along fairly with everyone,” he said, and seek “partnership, not conflict.”
“I promise you I will not let you down, we’ll do a great job,” President-elect Donald Trump told his supporters.And he said at the “end of two, maybe three … maybe eight years” they will agree. “Our work on this movement is really now just beginning. We’re going to get to work immediately for the American people,” he added.
“I love this country,” Trump closed, with a thank you.
The billionaire real estate magnate and former reality star needed an almost perfect run through the swing states — and he got it, winning Ohio, North Carolina and Florida.
The Republican swept to victory over Hillary Clinton in the ultimate triumph for a campaign that repeatedly shattered the conventions of politics to pull off a remarkable upset.
His winning coalition of largely white, working-class voters suggests a populace desperate for change and disillusioned with an entire generation of political leaders and the economic and political system itself.
Now, Trump faces the task of uniting a nation traumatized by the ugliest campaign in modern history and ripped apart by political divides exacerbated by his own explosive rhetoric — often along the most tender national fault lines such as race and gender.
For the US people, the Clinton family is considered corrupted, Michail Ignatiou, correspondent of Greek media in the US, on Wednesday said to Athens-Macedonian News Agency’s radio station Praktorio 104,9 FM.
Also the controversy over Clinton’s personal emails, which constitute a breach of national security, have also had a negative impact, he added.
Ignatiou underlined that Hillary Clinton and her team did not take into account that a movement against the establishment had been developed. Moreover, he stated that America did not deserve these two candidates adding that if the Democrats had another candidate, the former minister would have lost with great difference.
