No I did not think it possible either. It’s like just over half of those who voted in America thought just look at the lunacy of those Brits voting to leave the EU; hey we can beat that level of stupidity – so they did!
America ‘The land of the free’? Well so long as you are a white male, rich and racist maybe but if you are female, non-white and poor there will seemingly be nothing down for you in Trump’s America.
Of course America had a poor choice for the next President. The Republicans allowed themselves to be taken over by people who seem to be nearer to fascism than anything else. The Democrats picked a candidate who seems to be largely disliked/distrusted although I have no idea whether that is an accurate picture of Hilary Clinton. I think most Liberals would have wanted the Democrats to pick Bernie Sanders; he seemed to have fire in his belly to tackle the massive social ills of the USA.
But we are where we are. Will Trump carry out his bizarre agenda – bust up NATO, build a wall along the Mexican border which the Mexicans will have to pay for, ban Muslims from travelling etc. etc.?
We live in very dangerous times indeed and one thing is for sure the EU Referendum vote and electing Trump are just what Putin wanted! Oh and by the way don’t forget that the KKK backed America’s new President! To hell in a hand cart comes to mind.
