The moment we’ve all been waiting for finally came as Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States of America.
This presidential debate could easily be rated as the most stressful of all time as it had all of us on the edge of our seats as we awaited the final result.
Donald Trump came as a joke to all of us as he decided to run for president. Most thought it was just the sake of publicity; unfortunately the joke is on all those that thought so.
Surprisingly though, a larger portion of blacks and Latinos put their vote in for Trump than expected; even after the derogatory remarks he made towards them. 88% of African Americans voted for Clinton, compared to the 93% who voted for Obama during his election. 65% of Latinos also voted for Clinton. This could explain why Hillary Clinton did not outrun her opponent.

Despite the disappointing results, what we can take from this is that Trump and his team played a good game and stuck together through it all.
