The people have spoken! Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States following eighteen months of campaigning, criticism, and challenges amongst all contenders. 

At 2:31 a.m. on November 9, 2016, Hillary Clinton conceded the election to Mr. Trump. Many thought she would win despite her email scandal, connection to Wall Street, and controversial donations to the Clinton foundation. However, the former Secretary of State and Senator from New York brought a great deal of experience to campaign trail. Still, that wasn't enough as she failed to win crucial battleground states like Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio. Traditional "Blue" state, Michigan, even turned "Red" this year. 

On the other hand, president-elect, Donald Trump, has no political experience yet somehow managed to secure the office of commander-in-chief. Before the election season began, Trump was known for being a wealthy businessman. Now, many Americans view him as racist and sexist. 

As the days continue, individuals continue to blame the defeat of Hillary Clinton on third party voters. Parents have taken to social media to express the frustrations of their children. While some rejoice the selection of Mr. Trump, others fear what is coming in the next four years.
