09 November 2016 - Donald Trump elected President of the United States
Donald Trump's victory Speech
Donald Trump’s Revolt
The New York Times, 09/11/2016
President Donald Trump. Three words that were unthinkable to tens of millions of Americans — and much of the rest of the world — have now become the future of the United States.
Having confounded Republican elites in the primaries, Mr. Trump did the same to the Democrats in the general election, repeating the judo move of turning the weight of a complacent establishment against it. His victory is a humbling blow to the news media, the pollsters and the Clinton-dominated Democratic leadership. Lire la suite...
The Washington Post, 09/11/2016
Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States on Tuesday. Those are words we hoped never to write. But Mr. Trump shocked the pollsters, riding a wave propelled in part by rural and Rust Belt voters who felt the political establishment had cast them aside. While Mr. Trump might not have done the same for his rival, Hillary Clinton, had she won, all Americans must accept the voters’ judgment, and work for the best possible outcome for our country and the world.

Republicans, Buoyed by Trump’s Performance, Keep Control of Senate
Jennifer Steinhauer (09/11/2016)
Republicans maintained control of the Senate on Tuesday, fending off numerous Democratic challengers who polls showed were leading going into Election Day, as incumbents were pulled along by Donald J. Trump’s unanticipated strength in several key battleground states. Lire la suite...

An American Tragedy
David Remnick (09/11/2016)
The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy. On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President—a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit—and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety. Lire la suite...
Trump's America, Hiding in Plain Sight
Evan Osnos (09/11/2016)
Donald Trump’s America was always there, just beneath the surface. You glimpsed it in the crowds, furious but patient, waiting to see him, no matter how long they had to stand in the sun. You heard it in the words of his admirers, who saw him not only as an improvement on our current leaders but as an antidote, a bend in history, an agent of revolution. In the final weeks, there were the accelerants to his fire—the intervention of F.B.I. director James Comey in the Presidential race, a surge in health-plan prices under Obamacare—but none of them alone created his path. Only the people themselves could do that. Lire la suite...
Who Believed in Trump, and Who is to Blame
Benjamin Wallace-Wells (09/11/2016)
The Times unveiled a new feature on its Web site last night, for the Presidential election. Each time a new segment of the vote was reported, anywhere in the United States, algorithms reweighted the chances that each candidate would win each state, and the election. The animation that depicted these chances was a jittery little needle on a dial indicator, and early in the evening the joke was that its constant, frantic quiver was going to drive everyone nuts. By the end of the evening, the needle was only pointing in one direction, toward Donald Trump. It was a magnificent little creation, and a way to understand how votes in one place changed the significance of votes in another. So much care must have gone into its creation; the endeavor seemed so painstaking and earnest. And it measured the ascent to the Presidency of a brute with authoritarian tendencies. Lire la suite...

Trump outperforms in majority-white areas, and Clinton fails to fire up minorities
Rosalind S. Helderman, Philip Bump and Scott Clement (08/11/2016)
Donald Trump outperformed the previous Republican presidential nominee, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, in areas of the country with large numbers of white voters, leading to a far tighter race Tuesday night than many had expected leading into Election Day. Lire la suite...
The media didn’t want to believe Trump could win. So they looked the other way.
Margaret Sullivan (09/11/2016)
To put it bluntly, the media missed the story. In the end, a huge number of American voters wanted something different. And although these voters shouted and screamed it, most journalists just weren’t listening. They didn’t get it. Lire la suite...

Yes, the polls were wrong. Here's why
Mona Chalabi (09/11/2016)
The polls were wrong. And because we are obsessed with predicting opinions rather than listening to them, we didn’t see it coming. So, the world woke up believing that Republican candidate Donald Trump had a 15% chance of winning based on polling predictions – roughly the same chance of rolling a six if you have two dice. Despite those odds, the next US president will be Donald Trump. Lire la suite...
The US has elected its most dangerous leader. We all have plenty to fear
We thought the United States would step back from the abyss. We believed, and the polls led us to feel sure, that Americans would not, in the end, hand the most powerful office on earth to an unstable bigot, sexual predator and compulsive liar. Lire la suite...

What's Ahead After The Racial Hangover Of 2016 Election?
Gene Demby (08/11/2016)
It was Nov. 4, 2008. My birthday. Election Day. I made my way uptown to Harlem, where my friend Rakia was going to be watching the election returns with friends. I almost never wanted to go uptown — from Brooklyn, it may as well have been a trip to Guam — but that night I felt that I really, really needed to be in Harlem. Lire la suite...
After poisoning and dividing America, Donald Trump has won an ugly victory
Liam Kennedy (09/11/2016)
It’s over: Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States. The election that elevated him to this office has been brutal, ugly and bizarre. It has poisoned the well of American democracy, and the toxins it has introduced are unlikely to disperse anytime soon. Lire la suite...

Rock star, TV icon, president – but what is Donald Trump?
John Street (09/11/2016)
After a remarkable election night that defied pollsters’ predictions, Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. The electorate repudiated the mass of commentators who had expressed disbelief that such a person was running so competitively for the office of president. With Hillary Clinton conceding to Trump by telephone, it appears to have been those “left-behind” voters who, despairing of a political system they feel has failed them, turned to “the Donald” as the saviour who “speaks their language”.

Report: Things Finally As Bad As Trump Claims
The Onion (09/11/2016)
Following Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the general election early Wednesday morning, political experts confirmed that conditions in the United States are now finally as bad as the Republican nominee has long claimed. “Though we had previously been able to dismiss Trump’s proclamations as mere hyperbole and scare tactics, the United States now definitively meets the criteria of being the declining superpower that Trump has described for the past 17 months,” said Georgetown University political science professor Ronald Leidecker, adding that, as of tonight, the nation no longer commands the same respect among world powers it once did, and our country’s greatest days most definitely lie in its past, just as the Republican has asserted.
