Donald Trump has won. And for many, the bad news is that it isn’t just a bad dream. I believe it’s not as bad as people are making it up to be. I don’t think Donald Trump is the perfect candidate to ever run for office, but he is something we’ve never seen before.

Trump speaks his mind, and although he can be a bit radical, he doesn’t need to be beholden to anyone or anything. He tells it like it is, no matter what resulting chaos ensues. It makes me personally feel like I know him better, his good and bad sides. Often times with politicians, they’re so careful with what they say, I feel like they’re just doing it for the vote.

His plans for immigration could be very beneficial. According to mic.com, 90 percent of cocaine enters the U.S. through the Mexican border. While a wall probably won’t happen, he plans to fix this problem.

The disappointing part of this election, aside from the candidates, are the people protesting against the electoral college, claiming Hillary should have won because she won the popular vote. Democrats are basically protesting democracy. If the electoral college didn’t exist, states like California, Florida, and New York would determine the outcome of every election. If the electoral college didn’t exist, the system wouldn’t be fair at all. I’m not saying Donald Trump is the best choice for president, but I’m certainly not saying we’re all going to die because he’s been elected. The people have voted, and because of a system that has been in use since 1787, Donald Trump won.
