Congratulations President Trump!

Wow what a rollercoaster year it has been so far, first Brexit and now Trump, wonder if his presidency will become watered down and legal challenges launched by those who disagree with the outcome?

NAH! They have a much simpler and 'permanent' approach...

BANG! BANG! and the job is done.

I am not surprised by anything anymore. It is a very bad year for the pollsters though.

Looking on the bright side of life, there ought to be a huge drop in the unemployment figures as there should be plenty of construction jobs to be had. Just wondering what they will name it?

Some people have been talking about the 'wind of change' today. Quite appropriate, given his surname.

Be aware that any stroppy posts will be reported to the FBI and the originator will get an early morning call followed by a uncomfortable flight to Gitmo and this is not to emulate Beagletorque's pictures

Their motto, "God Bless America" has now got to be "God Help Us All!".

Apparently the Canadian web site covering immigration went down last night owing to overload. Google also reported a spike in 'Canada immigration' searches.

Re: Congratulations President Trump!

My daughter-in-law is American, has considerable brain power and is clever - she lives here in the UK. She assured me earlier this year that the Americans were far too savvy to vote for Trump.

The rallies look like mass hysteria and the Democrats can only blame themselves for nominating as toxic a brand as Clinton. Be glad we live this side of the pond, it's not so bad after all.

As with Obama, Trump's aspirations will mostly remain just that, as he doesn't have the power to act. All the more so as he dumped his own party. It is going to get far dirtier than the election campaigning.
