Donald Trump received a lot of harsh criticism during his campaign for the US Presidency, but he survived and triumphed. Ηe was elected President against all odds. His opposition had been constantly declaring that he is unfit for the position, with the excuse that what he represents is not right for America and generally the globe. The truth is that he must be judged after he acts as a President, so any objections to his election are not accurate before the facts that he is about to create as the most powerful person in the world. Besides, there are symbolisms in his win.

The results showed that America needed something new and obviously Hillary Clinton was regarded to offer that to less extent than Trump. Hillary is part of the previous governments, either as Secretary of State or as First Lady, so she was expected to follow the strategies of the past. She might have had the intention to leave her own mark, but most people assumed that Trump is more able to bring the change that US need. Perhaps, Hillary should have been a candidate with her birth name -I have heard people argue about that-, so as to illustrate that she is eager for innovations that will propel the nations forward. Trump was preferred, but there is a polarization going on, after his win, that leads to several protests.

The main concern regarding President-elect Trump is the fact that he cannot control what he says and expresses controversial opinions. This puts in doubt the relationship of US with the other countries. It is a risk of wars, and we are living in a period of violence and theories about a World War III. Trump has created a profile of a person that is not very willing to accept any other views but his own and this could cause feuds with other leaders, especially the strong ones. If this proves to be wrong, then he is highly misunderstood. Hopefully, his intelligence will prevail his temperament. He already looked more serious and reasonable in his first appearances following the results.

For me, the election of Donald Trump symbolizes that everyone deserves a chance in anything as long as he intends to act for the favour of prosperity. Trump's win prompts common sense to vanish the labels and shape the belief that a person can be effective in multiple, even contrasting, fields of life. What if Trump was a reality television personality? What if Melania Trump was a model? Regardless from their previous engagements, they have the right to be tested in the highest axioms. All people would want such opportunities, but they often don't take advantage of them from fear of outcry, because the world used to know them in different disciplines. Trumps could demolish the stereotypes.

Protesters believe that Trump doesn't deserve to serve as US President. Why not? Apart from his eccentric behaviour, Trump is a successful businessman with a united family, so his life is possibly guided through important values. His success could mean that he does deserve something even better than the luxurious habits he already has and to be the US President is the ultimate honour. He has offered positive goods to society and now he has to show that he can be paradigmatic with the responsibility he was given. If he makes it, Trump could erase the taboos.

Overall, I believe that Trump is a good person, but probably a little naïve, because he says exactly what he wants to say without thinking the consequences of his words. On the other hand, this could mean that he operates truthfully, but truth often is cruel and inappropriate for politics. To be a good politician one sometimes must hide the truth and I don't know if Trump can do that. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see how Trump will rule the world so long as no extreme tenses will occur that might pose a threat to the peace of the planet. Perhaps, he has some nice surprises that could benefit humanity as a whole.

The sure thing is that Trump is human and should have been respected more. However, the interests of his opponents were to degrade and defame him. His election as the US President is his revenge to all his haters. Now, every one must stand by him. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have already admitted that. So, Trump must be supported by all with the condition that he will work hard to make society better and won't exploit his power for personal boast. If he succeeds, we would be able to confidently infer that his scopes were misinterpreted.
