    • Hi Josh, I think it is already clear that the election is creating a huge divide in our country. I agree with you because I NEVER would have guessed Trump would win the Republican nomination, nor that he would ever become president. I have to admit I am one of those people adding to the divide in our country. I refuse to unite with someone who has been incredibly cruel and an noninclusive to every single minority out there, so I will continue to fight him and his followers from the other side. I’m still with Her. Great post, Josh.

    • Dear Josh:

      I am inspired by your post, “Trump won and i am surprised,” because i agree with your claims.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “On the other, there was a racist, sexist, offensive businessman and reality TV star with little to no political experience. I think this is strong because it is up bringing and very understandable.

      Another sentence that I read was: “I am very scared for the country’s future as the mood of so many people has changed, and I don’t know if the change will unite or divide us.” This stood out for me because it was strong as well.

      I do strongly agree with you that Trump will lead to horrific results. One reason I say this is because he is unexperienced. Another reason I agree with you is because Trump is very sexist and racist.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you are energetic and funny.

    • I was also surprised that Donald Trump won for President of the U.S. I think some of the other Candidates should of won instead. I don’t know why a lot of people voted for Donald Trump after all he has done. I don’t think Donald Trump would be able to make the U.S. better.
