By now, you’ve heard many different opinions regarding the stunning victory of Donald Trump, the least qualified candidate for president since the creation of the Republic over Hillary Clinton, the most credentialed and qualified candidate since the foundation of the Republic. Put differently, the least qualified beat the most qualified. Such irony!
Full Disclosure: I voted for Hillary Clinton.
If you’ve been reading this blog, you could have been more prepared, less surprised by the upset. Although I predicted Hillary would be called Madam President after the election, I had also warned several times of egregious mistakes being made which could cost her the election. Well, those mistakes did cost her the election. I know the last thing any logical individual would want to hear is that Donald Trump is the next president of the United States. But you must bring yourself at the very least to listen; it’s important. Besides, if one doesn’t learn from past mistakes, how could those mistakes be avoided in the future?
But before I address the election outcome, let me advise all of you who are out there protesting against Trump to instead channel your energy, your focus into something more worthwhile. I do understand the anger and the frustration but no amount of protests can change the outcome of the election. For good or for bad, Donald Trump will be in January 2017 the president for the next four years. We can now channel our energy to work to prevent any future “Donald Trump” from ever setting foot in the Oval Office. What’s done is done.
Hillary Clinton didn’t lose the election to Donald Trump because of the FBI meddling. I already discussed how disgraceful it was for the Director of one of the most important federal agencies in the nation to meddle in a presidential election, especially after being advised by the attorney general
not to. Regardless, James Comey didn’t influence the election in a significant way. However, very serious mistakes were made by the Clinton’s campaign.
In the next article, I will discuss the mistakes which robbed the country of the most qualified individual as president.
