In the Netherlands we have a king not a president. That king, one Willem Alexander, doesn’t rule the country like a president does, the prime minister of the Netherlands, a jerk named Rutten, is responsible for all his actions. But in the United States of America they elect a president every four years. Like the Olympics. And that it’s hard work you can see on mr. Obama’s face before and after he served two periods of four years.
And the people has chosen as their president-elect is Mr. Trump. Mr. Donald Trump is a businessman and that is what he promised to do. Run the united states of America as a business. Creating jobs, find work, restore buildings and airports and roads. The complete infrastructure. That sounds good to me. If Mr. Trump wants to finance his plans by cutting back his defence budget, well that sounds good to me as well. It will force European leaders to take care of their own defence and not to rely on the united states of America.
The hashtag “Not my president” on Twitter is a trending topic, and people go into the streets with that slogan. People deeply feel not to be represented by this president-elect. That is the result of Mr. Trumps campaign where he has deeply insulted people by race, gender and faith. And now the States of America are no longer United. Collateral damage to a presidential campaign is apparently a deeply divided country.
But shouting “Not my president” doesn’t help either. Looting and fighting policemen is just plain stupid. The only thing that we all can do is hope that this man finds a way to unite all of his countrymen, in spite of religion, race or gender. Because he needs every single one of them. So many people of this huge country has chosen him over Mrs. Clinton and let’s hope that these elections were not rigged like mr. Trump said before the elections many, many, many times. Never heard him after the elections about rigged elections.
To my simple brain the credo “One man, one vote” is more fair than this system Mr. Trump delivered the Presidency. One man one vote, is called in America “a popular vote”, and counts for nothing. The system needs to be changed, the political system where the common people do not recognize themselves in the leadership of the country needs to be changed.
And Mr..Trump is supposed to change it.
He made the worst start a man could ever make.
