I fell asleep before the Election results were all in last night and just cried and cried tears of joy when I seen this morning that our Trump won! God can Bless America again!!! May He bless Trump with wisdom always and bless us all!
True to the statement he made at a rally in Delaware, Ohio last month, Donald Trump accepted the ‘favorable’ election results.
“I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election … if I win,” the Republican said.
Trump edged past Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton who had hoped to claim the accolade of becoming the first female US president.
Trump previously accused Clinton of using the “woman card” to a level he had never seen before.
“All I’m doing is bringing out the obvious, that without the woman card, Hillary would not even be a viable person to even run for a city council position,” he said on NBC’s Today Show on April 28, 2016.
Despite being the underdog throughout the race, Trump never lost confidence in his ability to clinch the presidency, proclaiming at one point during the Republican primaries that he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
The Republican candidate sparked furor numerous times throughout the race for the White House, because of his comments both online and in the public forum.
It was reported that Trump’s aides went as far as to take control of the presidential hopeful’s social media accounts in the final days of the campaign. The presidential candidate gained huge notoriety through the use of social media, with his tweets sparking thousands of retweets and news headlines.
Here RT looks back at Trump’s most contentious tweets (some of which were later deleted), which sparked meltdowns and accusations of xenophobia and bigotry against the candidate.
Trump launched his candidacy in Manhattan in June 16, 2015 on an anti-Mexican platform.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best … they’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” he said.
The candidate later promised to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, and repeatedly reiterated his wall proposal online, blasting Mexicans as “criminals”.
