Trump campaign was based on lies, statements that embolden racism, bigotry, disrespect, human rights violations against a large sector of the American society.
His campaign was a non traditional charade which has been normalized by the media, the GOP leadership and a sector of the US population. Trump did not even win the majority of the voters over Hillary Clinton whose lead is expected to surpass Trump by 2.2 million votes or more when California results are completed. Reverting to his usual behavior on Twitter, the president-elect alleged this Sunday Nov. 27 that he “won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” A statement that has been debunked in the Washington Post.
In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

Trump appears to be a dangerous personage for the American democracy from several points of view. Recently 2 ethics lawyers stated that on day one, he will be in violation of the U.S. Constitution because of some of his business deals with foreign countries.
Senator Harry Reid wrote that Trump has “emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America.”
When journalists asked Trump if he had any regrets for using the unfortunate statements during his campaign, he flatly replied: “No, I won…”
Much is being said now about the results of the elections in the battleground states. Technology and computer experts have raised questions about ‘potentially hacked results’, which caused them to strongly encourage recount in those states. Jill Stein, candidate of the Green Party has indeed filed for recount starting with Wisconsin. Donald Trump blasted this move as “scam” when he was the first one to have raised the issue of “rigged elections” during the last weeks of his campaign.
