This topic might not be relevant anymore but I still want to talk about it. You may have moved on but I still haven’t. I’m not even American but this affected me tremendously and I mean it. I’m not going to fill this post with a lot of negativity because the world had enough with negativity. I just don’t want to add in the burden. I’m gonna try to remain this as light as possible.
If you still haven’t heard, Trump won the US Elections. I’m just going to say the fact that I thought Hillary was gonna win. Of course, I was shocked when suddenly, Trump was in the lead and when I saw him in the lead, I am sure that he’s going to win.
I don’t hate hate Trump but what I hate about him is his beliefs on things. I hate ideals. I hate his ideologies on things. I also don’t like Hillary because I hated some of her beliefs too but I would rather have her as the President than Trump (I’ll get some hate just by saying that, I know! And i don’t care!)
When I heard the results, I was pissed and a lot of rage was rushing in my veins because why the hell would America vote someone like him? And then, I realize I was just disappointed. I’m not angry but disappointed.. And then I realize other things. Number 1, I wasn’t disappointed about Trump because I think his administration would be at least beneficial. Number 2, I was actually really disappointed about the people who voted. So instead of filling this with Trump hate because as said, I don’t hate him that much and I wouldn’t fill this with Clinton love. I wouldn’t say that she should have won because I also hate some of her beliefs and it’s too late. Trump already won so what’s the point of me saying that she should have won? Instead, I would talk about the people who voted.
I am happy that most millenials voted for Hillary who believes on equality because these millenials would be the future of America and I think them having the same belief on equality as Hillary would be really good.
What I’m not happy about is that there are still so many people who share the same views as Trump. There are still so many people that believes on racism, sexism, hate on LGBT and hate on other religion. I thought majority of people now believed in equality and I thought we were all making progress. I just had these hope that our world will soon be filled with love and seeing how many people believed on discrimination, it just shattered my hope that we’ll soon attain peace on society.
But I still believe that everything has its reason. The universe made this happen, maybe there’s a reason why the universe made this happen. Maybe the reason is that it’s showing that in this kind of days, we shouldn’t lose hope. That we should never give. That we should keep that hope alive. Maybe, the ultimate reason for this is that it’s showing us to remain strong.
I’m scared too but don’t worry. We’ll get through this.
Also, you might question, “why are you scared? you’re not american.”. Well, we’re still affected because our president is looking forward into collaborating with Trump so we’ll see how it’ll affect not only America, but also the world.
Just a note: this post is not entirely pointed towards the Trump supporters. I know that some Trump supporters appreciates equality.
