Donald Trump got crushed in the election much like George W bush but worse...far worse

Near 3 million more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton then did for Donald Trump so it's hard to take him seriously as a leader

If Donald Trump somehow regains his position after another crushing election defeat will Americans actually accept it again or will something more severe occur

I grew up internationally and always heard Americans preach preach preach about democracy

Although I am a legal American citizen
(USA born to an American father and a South African mother) I find it absolutely hilarious that we invade other countries (under the premise of bringing a democratic process to them) and talk so deeply and with such reverence for democracy yet do not practice it here at home with her very own presidential elections

"Gore won 500,000 more popular votes than Republican George W. Bush but narrowly lost in the electoral college after the Supreme Court of the United States ordered a halt to the manual recounting of disputed ballots in Florida"
https://www.britannica.com/event/Uni...ection-of-2000

"More Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than any other losing presidential candidate in US history.
The Democrat outpaced President-elect Donald Trump by almost 2.9 million votes, with 65,844,954 (48.2%) to his 62,979,879 (46.1%)"

PS

I only lived in South Africa for 7 years but I can remember the United States going on and on about how important it was to bring a democratic election to our country...

Today the black government is planning on seizing all white owned land and sanctioning the murders of farmers... ( just like Rhodesia)

So even though democracy has had a hideous impact on my people I find it the epitome of hypocrisy that the United States doesn't respect democracy during its presidential election

.. all the blacks on my grandfather's Farm were paid employees unlike in the USA

A democratic election is a great way to destroy a colonial power... perhaps if South Africans would have murdered all the natives and used slaves to build the country we would have had a better shot at survival

does that process sound familiar?

He really is a fake President, Just a reality star playing the part of President. Always concerned about his ratings instead of the state of the country.

Trump talks about America's problems far more than Obama ever did.
Obama wasn't even interested in Chicago.
Obama was the fake President, only there to become friends with Hollywood celebrities....
Trump is the opposite, opposing Hollywood constantly, and when you read Trump's tweets you realize Trump never stops thinking about America's problems.
Trump is the most passionate President of All-time, while Obama was just going through the motions.

A close election- electoral college pushed mr trump into the winning I appreciate the faith in popular vote but I am not totally comfortable in what I see the public doing of late -voter fraud is a major concern
I think declaring mr trump a fake president is questionable

States elect Presidents through the Electoral College. Not people. Someone needs a civics lesson. Also 3 million people in NYC, and L.A. should not DICTATE to the entire country.

Someone apparently not aware how the election process and the Electrical College works so one area does not dominate the results.

OP stress will continue for the next 6 years

The majority will not consent to be ruled by the minority forever. In that, the OP is correct.
