Donald John Trump is the 45th President of the United States. Trump has won the general election on November 8, 2016, in a surprise victory against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. He became the oldest and wealthiest person to assume the presidency, the first without prior military or government service.

5 Reasons Donald Trump Won The Presidential Election

1.The media gave Trump an unfair advantage.

The media began multiplying Trump’s racial prejudice well before the election, obsequious over his ratings-boosting aggressive to the tune of $3 Billion in free press that was fairly impossible to run against.

2. The feelings of displacement and economic stress overwhelmed many voters.

Displacement is a loss of place or reputation. Many millions of Americans, for a host of reasons, are feeling the fundamental loss. Their displacement is a loss of culture, religion, identity, jobs and community. This polarization and anger in many parts of the United States motivated trump voters.

3. Racism and white supremacy ran deep enough to help Trump win.

There were promises to keep Muslims out of the country, calls for mass deportations, the criminalization of black Americans. That’s the vision Trump’s immense white base supported during the campaign and the one they voted for in the election.

4. Clinton supported trade deals and Trump criticized them.

After decades of industrial decay, the anger was rising. It came from industrial workers, from a shared class understanding that the dream of free trade left nearly all working people behind.

5. Clinton had too many limitations as a candidate.

Clinton was a savvy debater, and the debates were a bright spot in the campaign. She also lacked a strong central message. Her comments on race were thoughtful and considered. But it doesn’t matter. It turns out that most Americans don’t really care about debating skills.
