Will he prove it or lose it?

LETTER

The US election is over and Donald Trump won by a large majority. The only other alternative for the American people in the election was a 30-year veteran political hack who said and promised everything and anything to get elected, and then did nothing, so is it any wonder that Trump won.

He now has four years to prove himself or go down in a screaming heap, so sit back and let’s see what happens.

It will be an interesting ride either way, and one good thing is Trump does not have financial backers that have to be rewarded for their support.

Well he didn't actually win the popular vote by a large majority. In fact most who voted, voted for someone else either on the ballot or off it. He did win the college vote which is completely archaic and undemocratic. Reminiscent of Aristocratic Electors from Medieaval and Renaissance Europe. Also I wouldn't say HRC did nothing. If fact she has done more for the US in the last 30 years than any other politician and was by far the most qualified. The US has been fooled, as it seems you are, and far from draining the swamp Trump seems intent in growing the swamp and filling it with quicksand as far as the eye can see.

I can't recall anything HRC has done at all constructively in the last 30 years 1987-2017 except announce no more politics. She was a catastrophic State Secretary. She tried unsuccessfully to overthrow a presidential election in Iran which was vetted by Western monitors as legitimate. She destroyed Libya, bringing general misery and flight of millions of refugees to Europe. She was apparently a good Senator for her constituents and a good mother.
