A Trump victory takes us back decades of progress. This is terrifying.

Well, at least now the UK no longer holds the award for craziest, most self-harming hit-yourself-in-the-face nation. #USElection2016

This isn't amusing. This is terrifying. The election of Trump legitimises the racism and xenophobia seen in his campaign. #ElectionNight

In all seriousness if Trump wins it's opening the doors to so much hate, racism, inequality etc. & it's honestly scary to think about.

Seriously…how do we, as Mexicans, rebuild after this? How do we regain confidence? How do we feel wanted or welcome? #electionday

This is dread. This is what that feels like for those of us who have been fighting all along. #electionday

The New York Times
The Washington Post
And here’s what the result would have been like if only women, millennials, non-whites and college educated people had voted.
How do you feel about the result? Let us know in the comments!
