The #Election2016 season came to a close with historic results. Donald J. Trump amassed over 270 electoral college votes to secure his home in the oval office and become the 45th president of the United States of America. As a businessman turned politician, many cringe at the idea of a man so crass and volatile to be the leader of the most prosperous country in the world. In fact, there was so much uproar that Canada's main immigration website crashed after results began pouring in to the news sources about Trump's victories. However, #DonaldTrump supporters rallied behind their belief in his honesty, and fought together to take down #Hillary Clinton and secure the Republican Party a place in the White House for the first time in eight years. The doubt behind Trump came from many media outlets citing a lack of qualification and crude comments towards Latinos, blacks, and many of the Islamic faith. However, Trump's acceptance speech cannot be characterized with such descriptors.
Trump humbly accepted and threw no shade in the process
Despite being known for his insults, #Donald Trump's collected (even presidential) demeanor during his acceptance speech has to incite faith among the doubters of Trump that the country is not ruinous. Trump began the speech by congratulating Secretary Hillary Clinton on her "very hard-fought campaign," going as far as to say that "we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country." Trump continued by asserting that "it's time for America to bind the wounds of division" and claiming that "it's time for us to come together as one united people." The president-elect even boasted of the country's, "tremendous potential."
The speech was not hollowed of policy either
Donald Trump actually cited key policy points from his campaign, beginning with a less than conservative view on "fix[ing] our inner cities" and "rebuild[ing] our infastructure." Trump also gave a nod to the veterans of the military and commented on his aspirations of growth for the American economy. The to-be POTUS thanked his family and colleagues and ended his speech by reminding the American people that for this election "to really be historic, we have to do a great job." Trump's unprecedented behavior on the campaign trail over the last many months was certainly unnerving, but there's no question that his acceptance of the election results certainly put things in a better light. #Election 2016
