I sat here tonight watching Fox News, waiting for the election results. I didn’t support Trump in the primary but when he won that and I thought it through I got behind him. The reasons for that were that there was about 30 years of history on Hilliary and most of it wasn’t good. They started putting negative stuff out about Trump without the proof, when you bothered to do some research on Trump the people who knew him, worked for him etc., you found out they told a different story than what the news told. The fact that many of the Republicans, Democrats and the Media were against him (I’m convinced they were/are scared of him) was a big reason I was for him because I don’t trust any of those people. Then there was the fact that from day 1 we were told he had no chance, I felt that God must have been working because he was getting results when all the conventional wisdom said it was impossible to do what he was doing.
I watched the news people stammering and not believing what they were forced to report. It made me feel good to see them have to admit they were wrong. It came as a complete surprise to them, they didn’t see it coming. Many of us expected it because Donald Trump was speaking for the people, in a way we could relate to. For the past 8 years or so we were losing hope so when Trump started saying the things we were feeling it got our attention, we started to have hope that things could change. No politician could have done that because quite frankly “WE DON’T BELIEVE THEM”. Like the old joke: How do you know a politician is lying? Because their lips are moving!
When Trump came out and gave his victory speech, rather than do the things the news would have told you he would do, he struck the right tone, he was humble, he put the focus on the people who worked so hard to get him there and indicated there would be much work to do, we needed to be united as a country and the American People (all of us) that were important and he would work for all of us, even if we had not supported him.
Bottom line is we can have hope again, it can get better.
