Nov 14, 2016 Wrestling Observer Newsletter: Donald Trump elected President, massive UFC 205 preview, moreSubmitted by dave on Wed, 2016-11-09 16:24
After a year with plenty of cute pro wrestling metaphors about the presidential election, Donald Trump, who among his many forays into the entertainment world included drawing the largest PPV number in pro wrestling history and being in the WWE Hall of Fame, is the new President of the United States. That’s a position often referred to as the most powerful leader in the free world.
This terribly divisive election leaves the country with a lot of challenges and uncertainties. It’s sad. A lot of Americans are unaware that for a number reasons, because of being world economic leaders, they are resented in many parts of the world. Unfortunately, this will, if anything, accentuate that feeling with the idea the country voted someone who has insulted minority groups as its president, with the idea that the American majority (even though the actual votes were almost identical and Clinton seems to have barely won the popular vote) had no empathy for its struggling minorities.
