Nope, but your country might become a suburb of St. Petersburg. The new Secretary of State 'Newt Gingrich' pretty much just gave Putin the greenlight to take Estonia.

Americans chose their President in a Democratic Election, as for my opinion in terms of US Domestic Policy that's an American issue, as for Foreign Policy he has stated that he is willing to form a workable relationship with Putin, and will now hopefully force all NATO Countries to meet the required 2% GDP minimum Defence Spending.

I wish Trump and the US well.

I was never a Clinton fan, and fully accept the democratic decision of the American people.

A Nordic nuclear program sounds like good idea.

A job opportunity for Estonians?
More like a chance for the Finnish social parasite freeloaders to get some hand-on working experience while Estonians keep the state of Finland running.

I think it's hilarious. I don't think it will have much of a negative effect upon me as I am a British citizen.

It's a surreal feeling, and I'm unsure what to expect out of a US lead by President Trump. The campaign as a whole was a farce and the fact that this system churned out such deeply flawed candidates is a sign of a country in decline. I know it is only a hypothetical but a candidate like Bernie Sanders would probably have won this election and provided a more positive and constructive direction for the US to head towards.

It seems to me that Trumps's election is a reflection of an arrogant political establishment, almost completely detached from a large part of the electorate that is desperate for anything other than the status quo.

The US, and many other countries, should ban private donations to electoral campaigns. It is a corrupting influence on government that leads to situations such as the current election. Additionally rather than deriding people as "rednecks" or "deplorables" or some other put down people need to start listening to each other and working together to lift all people and put a stop to this need to divert to divisive politics.

Trump is many things, but he is not part of the political establishment or a product of large campaign contributions. His rise was one of anger toward the status quo and the political elites. I'm not a supporter of his nor do I think he will be successful, but make no mistake about how he got to where he is; people are PO'ed at the system.

If you can not get what you want, it simply means you are not working hard enough!
I am surprised at your attitude after all of Donald Trump's racist comments.

Also trade was greatly expanded with Saudi Arabia under Hilary permission even though Saudi Arabia and Qatar was discretely funding ISIS. There are other examples and this shows that she is not to be trusted as commander in chief.
I assume you know that Donald Trump does have business ties with Saudi Arabia.

Yes, I don't think anyone knows really what to expect of the future President Trump. He is like a wild card and we just have to wait and see!

I agree with this and that's what I intended to get across with my post. I'm not suggesting he is or was part of the establishment politically, rather his election was more by default as the anti-establishment candidate.

I think this election (not just the winning of Trump, but the whole run) has proved that more than 200 years of democratic practice gets you absolutely nowhere and that the quality of American democracy is about as laughable as ex-dictatorships, probably even worse.

Along with Brexit, it has also proved how true the quote "the only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history" is.
