When Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election, I was shocked beyond this world! I thought he did not have a chance in hell to win. Matter of fact, I betted someone a thousand dollars, and lost! I was so confident that Hillary was going to win, I did not watch the election because I had faith in the American people!! Well, I was wrong!!! I could not believe a portion of America was this damn stupid to elect Donald Trump!!!!!!!
How did it come to this? Well, It was a perfect storm for Donald Trump. In my opinion, here is how he won:
#1. I think Hillary underestimated Trump as well as the level of commonsense of the American people.
#2. I think Hillary took the high road too much, and she did not attack Trump enough on his business dealings and his character as he was doing to her.
#3. I think Hillary did not clear up some outstanding issues. For instance, her email situation and the Benghazi attack when she was the Secretary of State.
#4. Hillary and Democrats let the Republicans and the right create too many false conspiracy theories about her and/or her husband, President Bill Clinton. The Right bashed Hillary on social media and on the radio. A lot of these conspiracy theories could have been debunked with a few questions and answers.
#5. Hillary was a woman. Yes, there were Americans who thought we should not have a woman as president.
#6. Trump sold his brand and himself as a businessman to be reckoned with, and he would be the same as president. Now, we all know this was one of the biggest lies in the history of the universe.
#7. James B. Comey, the former FBI Director, is the considered to be the nail that was placed in Hillary’s coffin. He came out two to three weeks before the election date and told the world the FBI was investigating additional emails surrounding Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump was looking for an event like this to occur again in the 2020 presidential election. This is why Trump and his associates were pushing the Hunter Biden story.
#8. I think this final point was going on for a few years and the Democrats did not see it coming. It was lingering effect of Barrack Obama becoming the first non-Caucasian president. I think there was a large percentage of White America that was scared in 2008 and this lingered until the election of 2016. With Barrack Obama being elected president, the economy downturn that was created by Bush and the republicans party, with soldiers coming home with their issues, with entities like the FOX Network constantly attacking and spinning the true about Obama’s presidency and policies, with the rise of social media, with republicans controlling the Legislative branch of Government, with Russian and Cambridge Analytica Interference in the 2016 presidential election…….Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of these United States.
I was like what in the hell just happened?
