What they say

“Me and my mom voted for Hil­lary Clin­ton. We don’t like Don­ald Trump. He’s a hate­ful racist, he doesn’t like women or mi­nori­ties, and I’m a wo­man and a mi­nor­ity. He has no re­spect for any­one; he’s dis­re­spect­ful of fat peo­ple; he rates women by their looks; and he’s ob­nox­ious. He’s a liar and we just don’t like him. Hil­lary Clin­ton is the op­po­site of that.” “I voted for Jill Stein be­cause I be­lieve we need a third-party op­tion. Even though it might not be in the cards this time, I don’t be­lieve any re­duc­tive pol­i­tics and I don’t be­lieve in vot­ing lesser of the two evils. I feel that the choices we’ve had as Amer­i­can cit­i­zens this time have been re­duced as such, to make a lot of peo­ple feel dis­en­fran­chised in a cer­tain way. I don’t be­lieve in prac­ti­cal­ity pol­i­tics.” I’m a Trump sup­porter and I love China. I voted for Trump be­cause I feel that Trump is the one that is gonna do the most to help the Amer­i­can peo­ple and just bring ev­ery­thing to­gether af­ter ev­ery­thing that’s been hap­pen­ing.

Af­ter the elec­tion, I think it is im­por­tant for the newly elected pres­i­dent to work with both par­ties to force com­pro­mises and pass leg­is­la­tion to keep the econ­omy mov­ing, pro­tect So­cial Se­cu­rity and (pro­vide) af­ford­able health­care, pro­tect the coun­try against both ter­ror­ists and cy­ber hack­ing, pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment and en­sure equal pro­tec­tion for all groups against dis­crim­i­na­tion.

Trump also pro­posed that ev­ery­one re­gard­less of their race and color should re­ceive the same op­por­tu­nity for ed­u­ca­tion, and he will make re­pay­ment of stu­dent loans more af­ford­able. That’s great news for Asian par­ents. For so long, our chil­dren have to present bet­ter qual­i­fi­ca­tions than other racial groups to get into the best schools. I have two grand­sons. I’m sup­port­ing Trump to fight for their ed­u­ca­tion.” Qiu Xian­qin, pres­i­dent of Florida Chi­nese Peace Uni­fi­ca­tion As­so­ci­a­tion Trump’s most loyal voter base is the white blue col­lar work­ers, for ex­am­ple, fac­tory work­ers in rusty belt states like Ohio, West Penn­syl­va­nia, Michi­gan, and etc. Trump made a lot of prom­ises to please this base, from trade, im­mi­gra­tion pol­icy to his for­eign pol­icy. Once he be­comes the Pres­i­dent, he will not be able to ful­fill all these huge prom­ises he made, how­ever, those is­sues will be his high­est pri­or­ity in­stead of spe­cial in­ter­ests in Wash­ing­ton pol­i­tics. He will make a great im­pact on the ex­ist­ing po­lit­i­cal sys­tem as an out­side. Trump is not a pre­dictable politi­cian, nei­ther are his poli­cies. One thing cer­tain is that he will shock the sta­tus quo that is never seen be­fore, for good or bad.

Who­ever gets elected in the end, I don’t think the coun­try’s poli­cies will be changed fun­da­men­tally be­cause the pres­i­dent’s power is checked by the other branches. Cur­rently, the pub­lic hold ex­treme opin­ions to­ward the pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates, but I think the na­tional poli­cies will not lead to ex­trem­ist routes af­ter the elec­tion. Though many peo­ple may feel frus­trated by the elec­tion, I be­lieve the US democ­racy is very healthy, and the po­lit­i­cal

sys­tem will not be swayed.

Wash­ing­ton

“I voted for Hil­lary Clin­ton. I think that she has more ex­pe­ri­ence as op­posed to Don­ald Trump. He is maybe a good busi­ness­man, but as far as pol­i­tics, he is not there,” Cun­ning­ham said. “I can­not vote for a pres­i­dent who makes fun of hand­i­capped peo­ple, who has a large ap­petite for de­grad­ing women.” “If you want to be for the peo­ple, do the things that help peo­ple, not so much of just talk­ing about it, but be about it. My un­der­stand­ing is that, let your char­ac­ter de­fine the kind of work that you do, and let the work that you do de­fine your char­ac­ter. And I think she has more char­ac­ter than he has.”

New Jersey

“I voted for Trump. I am con­cerned about se­cu­rity along our bor­ders and that’s the main rea­son I sup­port him,” Va­lerie Krau­gen, Fords, New Jersey.

Seat­tle

I sup­port Hil­lary. It was a tough de­ci­sion, but I think that’s the right choice based on her ex­pe­ri­ence. My ex­pec­ta­tion of her is to ad­dress things we need to ad­dress and keep im­prov­ing our coun­try. I am ex­cited for to­day’s re­sult, to have a wo­man pres­i­dent. It is a big turn­ing point for the coun­try.
