Did Trump Win Among the Russians of the US?


News on Donald Trump being elected as the US President were met with an applause by the members of the State Duma. This topic trends on media and social networks worldwide. Russians living in the US were very emotional about Trump winning the race.

The Mourners

They are 99.9 percent of the Democrats. They start their posts with phrases like “Today we woke up in a different country”, Back to the XIX century, or How do I explain decisions of our President to my children. However, many of them criticized Clinton as well.


Many of the mourners went really harsh on Clinton. Lev Trakhtenberg: Dear Hilary, this is your fault! I was so happy to have the first female president after the first African American president. I was even happy for you that you wanted revenge for your husband. But learning about you and your life made me turn away from you. Your self-interest and deceitfulness were killing me. Your fake smile is even worse than Trump and his shenanigans. This is disappointing. And it was proven by the people of the US. No joy…

The Happy

Mainly they are represented by the third wave immigrants, who managed to integrate into the American society. They are not always supported by their younger relatives, no matter what their social status is.

Gennady Katsov, a famous journalist, is pretty neutral: Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States. Trump receives 274 votes, while Clinton - 218. Good morning, America!

Not only did he win, he led his Party to win over the Senate, even when the Party didn’t support him – says Eduard Klebano of Boston.

Vlad Gorny, head of the most famous private educational institution in Brookline: He will make America great again!

Congratulations to Trump supporters!

Trump is a President! Hurray!

This is the end of the Clinton dynasty and their successor Obama.

People are against her, gushes Evgeny Smirnov from New Jersey.

I used to support Clinton, but it was too much of her. She was fake, I was so over it, comments Levon Braun from Las Vegas.

Because of her trying so hard to take over the power, we have a narcissist on the throne. This is her fault. One has to know when to leave! concludes Katya Mukhminova.

There were people who didnt support either of the candidates. Such ethical choice was too much for them. Some of them didnt vote at all, some voted for a third candidate.

You get as many opinions, as many people you have. In Russia, we know how it can turn out. So, I want to say to my compatriots: dont fight and dont feel sad. Everything will be fine, if you will talk less politics, but will be taking good care of each other instead.
