Shocked at Election Results
Posted: November 18, 2016
I am still shocked that Donald Trump won the GOP presidential campaign. I have told you in the past that I voted for John Kasich, the governor of Ohio, who seemed to be the most solid of the bunch of candidates. However, I don't like the fact that The Donald apparently did some deal to own the Washington, D.C. post office and will become its landlord.
I also don't like the fact that Donald Trump owns 65 properties around the world. In addition, his Harvard-educated son-in-law Jared Kurchner, who was not part of the campaign, is now considered to possibly be an elected official after his father went to prison for tax and felony charges.
It does not seem right to me, but who am I to confuse what is deemed being fair? I also have concerns about the residents living in Trump Tower in New York City. They all live on the top three floors in Trump Tower. It will be interesting to see how Trump organizes his cabinet. In my opinion, Trump has done everything to make us a divided country.
How to explain Donald Trump's stunning victory? Well, for one thing, Trump carried Ohio, which has carried the electorate every year since whenever. In addition, Trump carried Ohio with 52 percent of the vote. As Ohio goes, the nation seems to go.
Donald Trump also carried Texas with 53 percent of the vote. He carried Tennessee with 61 percent of the vote. And he carried Utah with 57 percent of the vote.
I didn't stay up late to watch the voting results, but I know that there is something missing from his campaign that I am not seeing. I know that Rudy Guialani, the former governor of New York, wants to be the Secretary of State. I have no problem with that, but as a former attorney general, is just makes more sense to make him the U.S. Attorney General.
Michigan also went with Trump. He garnered 48 percent of the vote against Hillary Clinton is a closely-fought match. Trump also carried Arkansas with 60 percent of the vote. Hillary won the Washington, D.C. vote easily with 93 percent of the vote. And she is still about 500,000 votes ahead of Trump in the general election. All of this makes me nervous.
