Donald Trump President-elect

[VIDEO] This most interesting campaign has finally ended and in a Trump victory. Beginning January 20, 2017, we'll be living under a Donald Trump presidency. Unfortunately there are many who aren't happy, there are protests in downtown Chicago and as I've just learned on FOX News TV around the nation.

Considering the President-elect came into this election very unpopular I've figured that he as the victor of the 2016 presidential campaign would be a one-termer. Though I will admit looking only at the states he won, it was an overwhelming victory. He may still lose popular vote against Clinton but it was still an overwhelming victory he broke through in blue states such as Pennsylvania and Wisconsin for example.

BTW, the whole win electoral college and lose popular vote happened in 2000, 1888, 1876, 1824, and 1800. 2000, 1876, 1824, and 1800 were disputed and ultimately a President was inaugurated.

The question now is whether or not the President-elect will show how ready he is for his new responsibility. Above his victory speech which sounds conciliatory. He didn't beat down Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
