“I’m happy with the results. I wasn’t sure what to expect, it was really close. I think if it went the other way it would be a very corrupt next four years.”

“I think it was a surprise, and we need to use it as a learning experience. I think protesting is getting out of hand. It’s not fair to call 60,000,000 people racist, they just voted for him for different reasons than Hillary voters.”

“It’s spitting hatred. We should protest against the GOP and the party system. No one cares about the importance of voting. It’s frustrating. Trump is our president, but we need to protect our people. Hopefully we can go forward with love.”
