Somehow the impossible started to become possible. As Election 2016 was coming to a close, Donald Trump was on the verge of becoming president.

Election conclusion

All signs pointed to Hillary Clinton becoming the 45th President of the United States. Pollsters and political pundits were getting ready to watch the first female president celebrate one of the most historic election victories in American history. Just over a month ago, Clinton was projected to win over 350 electoral votes, but that dream started to fade.

As the calendar turned to November 9, the man who once hosted "The Apprentice" and has been accused of sexual assault by a dozen women in the last four weeks exceeded all expectations and was just a state away from winning of the 2016 presidential election. Before the election could be called, a CNN panel guest and guest host gave an emotional reaction to a potential Trump victory, as reported by Mediaite on November 9.

Joining a full panel of guests, Van Jones held back tears as he described what a Trump presidency would be mean for millions of frightened Americans.

"People are talking abut a miracle, I'm hearing about a nightmare," Jones said. "You tell your kids don't be a bully. You tell your kids, don't be a bigot," Jones continued, before adding, "You tell your kid, do your homework and be prepared." "You have people putting their children to bed tonight who are afraid of breakfast," Jones went on.

"I have Muslims friends who are texting me asking if they should leave the country," he said, also adding, "I have family of immigrants that are terrified tonight." Jones, an African-American, then brought up the issue of race and how it has impacted the election.

"This is a white-lash against a changing country. This a white-lash against a black president," Jones pointed out, explaining, "That's the part where the pain comes." Jones concluded his comment by leaving a message for Trump.

Closing message

"Donald Trump has a responsibility tonight to come out an reassure people that he is gong to be the president of all the people who he insulted and offended." As of press time, Trump is sitting with 244 electoral votes, while Clinton holds on with 215. If current projections continue, Trump will become the next commander in chief.
