Republication presidential election nominee Donald Trump won, in his own language, the "rigged election" on November 8. Until the day of the election, he had been constantly pounding the election campaign trail with his verbal bombardment of the "rigged election."

When he himself won this very rigged election, not by popular votes (Hillary Clinton so far won more than two million popular votes than Donald Trump) but by electoral votes (Trump won 290 and Clinton 232 of these votes), he claimed legitimacy instantly! 

Immediately after the election, protests started and surged all over the U.S. and parts of Canada against Donald Trump's win. Protesters claimed the election to be fraudulent. Now some even want some centres' votes to be recounted to see if fraud was committed.

Whatever it is, now it is the reality that Donald Trump won and Hillary Clinton conceded to it, and Trump is going to be the next U.S. President after Barack Obama. 

Donald Trump is now not only the President of the people who directly voted for him, but also voters who voted against him. He wants to make America great, which he can only do if he works both for his supporters but also for his opponents. This is a very delicate balance to be achieved with cool and calm head as well as intelligent prowess. Can Donald Trump do it? That is the question in the minds of the Americans as well as onlookers from around the world.
