I was a bit silent during the elections in the US and I did not want to reveal who I was cheering for before yesterday evening. The reason for this is because I did not want to influence anyone in the US by my opinion since I was not voting in the country. I think that it was important that every American reader of mine was taking his or her own decision.
When I revealed my favourite yesterday I got a lot of comments and some were angrier than others. People were asking me how the heck I could cheer for Donald Trump. The whole family of my boyfriend were cheering for Hillary Clinton but I did not let myself affect by their opinions. Johan supports some of the opinions of Trump but did not dare to hope for his victory due to his sayings about NATO which frightens every Norwegian citizen. Norway is very dependent on NATO due to the situation of their neighbour in the east which is Russia. He was therefor a bit sad and afraid of the news that he got early this morning. I am not that stressed though since I don’t think that Russia will take action against Norway in any near future since I believe in American presence in the union.

The world is shocked of the news today and everyone are asking themselves how that guy managed to win when the whole world was going against him. Hillary seemed like a solid candidate for president and the majority believed that she was the one that was going to win the elections. I am not that shocked actually since I revealed his master plan early in the process. While Hillary was talking about the environment, gay rights and other values then the Donald was talking about normal American citizens from both lower and middle class and claiming that the American dream was dead. If you don”t have economic certainty in your life you will not care for gay rights ether if you’re not one of them. I think that this was a very clever move by him and I think that this was one of the big reasons for why this reality TV star could end up becoming the president of the US and the most powerful man on this planet. Focusing on this group in the American society helped him to win all kinds of groups even women which were expected to vote for Hillary due to his comments about women.
I am a woman and a minority in the country where I live in and you might wonder why I can cheer for a guy like him. I think that Hillary is for the elite and all this Wall Street people while Donald Trump was using his strategy to get to the White House by helping the most weak in the society by making America great again. Moreover, he has been a business man for many years creating so many work places for people which makes me believe that he will become a good president for the US.
Now he is reaching a hand to his opponents and then it is up to them to give him a chance to gather the American people and like Hillary said in her speech to give him a chance to lead. The American people is very divided right now and it will only get worse by not accepting the person elected.
Be nice to one another! <3
