President Trump!

Yesterday, on November 8, 2016, Americans have chosen their 45th president! The "inconvenient" candidate Donald J. Trump was elected to run the country for the next four years.  

Trump won in a smashing victory that surprised many, himself included. His supporters hoped that he will win, but no one predicted such great turn out. 

It was a difficult campaign since Trump had not only the mainstream media and the progressive Left against himself, but also the Republican establishment president George Bush included, the Congress, the globalists, the moralists of all colors, the big money, certain foreign powers and personalities that donated heavily to his opponent, and even the pope in Rome! 

The movement he created took a root in the hearts and minds of people tired of the detrimental policies of the current administration; people tired of the economic decline and ever growing gap between the poor and the financially privileged; people tired of lies and corruption in the country; people tired of racial polarization; people tired of erratic immigration policy and unprotected borders; people tired of political correctness and semi-fascist rhetoric that dominated political discourse for such a long time. The "basket of deplorables," as Trump supporters were called by Mrs. Clinton, have had enough and voted for a real change this time. 

Trump will certainly have a difficult job, but with his vision and determination, and great love for the country and its people, he will start working hard on day one of his presidency.  

Every new presidency brings hope for a change and change is badly needed in a country with an almost invisible growth and national debt that grew exponentially over the last eight years. People need jobs and financial security. They need clear foreign policy. They want their dignity and respect for the country restored. And they do not want to ever again see their president disembarking through a service door of Air Force One! 

Despite his age, Trump has an incredible stamina. He promised to make America great again and he will work hard, but he cannot do it alone. Americans have to forget their artificially created divisions and must apply themselves to the task at hand. Those who do not wish so can quietly sneak out through the still wide open borders. They can try their luck in Canada, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela or Iran. Grass seems always to be a bit more greener on the other side of the fence.

Trump is a businessman and a good negotiator, but most importantly, he is a New Yorker who has a "big mouth" and is not afraid to speak his mind. He was supported by many amazing personalities and I cannot wait to see his cabinet being formed. There will be many changes and I am sure he will surround himself with people who really love America and put her first.

Allow me to speculate. I imagine that his presidency will be something between JFK and Reagan. It will be a presidency for all Americans. Trump will not bend in half before a Saudi king or anybody else. He is pragmatic and wants to restore America to the position of a superpower - a country to be reckoned with on a world scene. The world has to be kindly reminded that America is exceptional and Trump is the one who will do it from day one.
