Ok, I should have said that among the people who voted, Trump got the majority of votes. I am also from New York - raised on Long Island and most of my family worked in the city. Trump can be a crude, rude, insulting and self centered guy, agreed. But despite his bad qualities I believe he loves our country and wants to do good things - help our veterans, improve healthcare, improve the economy, etc. I didn't hear anything from the other side but more of the same which was not very inspiring. As obnoxious as Trump can be there are many people who know him personally and say he's a different person in private. The truth is we all are a mixed bag of good and bad qualities. I have UC too and I am not worried that his presidency will negatively affect my healthcare and pray that I am not wrong, for my sake and everyone else’s. Don’t forget that Trump was a Democrat until four years ago – I don’t know if that is any consolation but it would at least seem to suggest that he is not strictly aligned to one ideology. If Trump is an awful president I will vote for someone else in four years. He was not my first choice but I thought he’d be better than Clinton. Can you try to have a “wait and see” attitude and give him a chance?
He did not get the Majority of the Vote, he actually lost the overall Popular Vote by about
300,000 votes. He did win the electoral college. I would say that there was a effective effort to disenfranchise minority voters by lowering the number of polling places in Republican governed swing states and passing voter ID laws.
Even if Trump was on the democratic ticket I would not have voted for him, out of the principal that he is a bigoted xenophobe narcissist among many other things . I actually vote most of the time Republican for my State elections.
He doesn't do what he says. He promised a donation to veterans and didn't give it until 4 months later after he was shamed into giving it. /www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/05/24/four-months-later-donald-trump-says-he-gave-1-million-to-veterans-group/
I believe Trump is incapable of loving the country, because he is a narcissist the only thing he loves is himself. Here is a great article about
Trumps' narcissistic tendencies and how bad they could end up being when things start to go wrong. /www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/07/22/is-donald-trump-a-textbook-narcissist/
He is really incapable of sincerely apologizing for anything, SNL spoofs it as Applegizing because Trump can't really even say the word. The only time he apologizing was for the Access Hollywood tape where he bragged about
committing sexual assault which would be a crime if reported.
I think I have every right to be terrified of what is going to happen to health care/insurance in this country.
