Over the last few days’ tensions have been running high throughout the World. We have all been watching Washington D.C with bated breath for a long time now (it feels like decades, I mean really, am I the only one that got sick of all the Presidential race coverage?). But on the 20th, it happened…Donald Trump became President of the United States and the entire World seemed to split into two. The next four years (come on, stop saying eight, don’t assume…we all know what that does) are going to be extremely interesting for all of us. Yes, America, not just you guys.
Donald Trump will affect us all and what that affect will be, no one really knows yet. I’m no expert in politics, in fact, I hate the subject, however I have seen how this man has already had an impact on people’s lives. Protests, riots, violence, a lot even before he was elected! It amazed and sickened me how one man can turn so many people against each other.
I’m a firm believer that everyone has a right to their own opinion and that everyone’s opinion should be respected, even if you disagree with it. I often say, “you’re an allowed an opinion, just don’t be a little s**thead about it.” And people usually follow that rule, because people are decent (most of the time). But now, it seems that if you support Trump, you’re the spawn of Satan himself.
I will say that I’m not a supporter of Trump, but then I’m not a supporter of Clinton either. I thought that the choices America had were just bloody awful and you’d probably do better with a dead guy, or a dog…but hey, you had to pick someone, right?
And because you had to pick someone (because if you didn’t vote and could…well, you know), you really can’t be angry if someone voted differently, because their opinions are different to yours and that is okay. There are a lot of us that do not like Trump, but we must accept that he is the President and the only thing we can do is wait and see what happens. We can be sceptical, but we shouldn’t be taking our anger out on each other and instead be making positives out of the negatives.
We must remember to love and respect each other, despite our opinions. If you think he is disrespectful and heartless, then do not act in the same way. Arguing, fighting and hating each other will not make this situation any easier. Voice your opinion in respectful ways and allow others to voice there’s without turning into a s**thead. Your voice will get further when you make valid points and not argue in childish ways.
We should all show Trump…that love and respect trumps hate! By loving and respecting each other. (After all, being a good and kind person is a lot easier and much more rewarding than being a s**thead.)
