I supported Donald Trump all the way, and yes I am a black woman. When I wrote the article on why I believed Donald Trump would make a better president than Hillary Clinton, I received a lot of abuse from mostly black people who called me crazy among many other colourful names. But I had to be brave and stick to my gut instincts. I am not in America, but today I am celebrating that for once, the world assumed wrong.
I fell in love with Trump's personality because of his moral principles. As a woman who loves children, to me any man who puts the life of unborn babies first has got a good heart. I cannot even fathom that people can support partial birth abortions. Donald Trump condemns this evil practice, and for that alone, he won my heart.
The second reason I fell in love with his person was just his honesty. He did one thing that no presidential candidate has ever done, he spoke his mind. He was just real. He did not tell people what they wanted to hear and for that he had the big media houses against him. CNN tried their best to destroy him. During the debates even the moderators were against him. But he stood his ground.
The third reason why I fell in love with his person was that he is not a politician. He was more of a family and businessman than politician. He has raised lovely children and he is a firm believer in the institution of marriage. For that he resonated with the people, especially the American Christians. I am not into politics but I understood his language.
Donald Trump had his own party key figures against him. But he carried on. He had the whole world against him. The media was against him. But all he ever needed was his wife and children next to him.
A lot of black people are upset that Trump is now one of the most powerful men in the world. I am not upset, I was up all night dancing away. My dear black people, Barack Obama was the first Black president but he never did anything for black Americans or for Africa. He was never for you. Hillary was never going to do anything for you either. So stop crying and celebrate your new President. No president will ever set black people free. That's our problem, we are still waiting for a saviour. But it's up to us to set ourselves free. Whoever is in power has nothing to do with black peoples' freedom.
I do commend the few black people who supported Trump, they had no fear. To me they are free. They chose Trump because he was a better candidate than Clinton.
As for Hillary Clinton, I have nothing much to say about this woman that I haven't already said. I never liked her. My guts told me the world would be in trouble if she won. As for Jay Z and Beyonce, it's sad you will never perform for the president now.
Nigerian "prophet" TB Joshua has at least made his mark as a false prophet today. It's official. Just two days ago he announced that God told him that Hillary Clinton would be the next American president. Well at least we can now confirm that his god lied to him.
What I have learnt about this dramatic election is that social media doesn't always reflect reality. Sometimes popularity on Facebook and Twitter doesn't mean success. Social media likes and comments can be deceiving. I learnt the importance of self belief.
Mr President, you had the whole world against you, but you triumphed! I am one woman who has had to fight hard for what I believe in with masses against me, and for that alone you are my greatest inspiration. Sometimes you do not need the masses on your side, you just need to stay true to yourself. Well done Mr President Donald Trump, against all odds you did it. I write this blog on behalf of the few free black people who supported you, I am one happy Trumplet today, and I am sure all the unborn babies are leaping in their mothers' wombs with joy!!! I will be honored to shake your hand one day.
You are an eagle and eagles soar to greater heights alone. Eagles fly in the greatest storms. Long Live President Donald Trump!
