Are you worried about Donald Trump becoming US president?

Polls

16th November 2016

LAST week, the American people voted for a different kind of leader to become their next president.

Donald Trump is not a politician but is a billionaire businessman. He is also known for starring in the US version of The Apprentice.

This, and some of the things he said during campaigning for the job, has made some people unhappy. But, in the US, it is impossible for one person to act alone, and he would need backing to act on some of his different ideas.

The two main parties are the Republicans and Democrats. Donald Trump is a Republican. There are more elected Republicans than Democrats, but many Republicans do not like Donald Trump’s ideas. They can all vote against him if they don’t like his plans. In the same way, many of outgoing President Barack Obama’s ideas couldn’t happen because he didn’t get support for them.

Many people who voted for Donald Trump did so because they don’t like what is happening in America right now, and they wanted change. For example,
they feel they have less money than before.

Donald Trump will become president in January when he gets the keys to America’s famous White House from Barack Obama.

After he won the election, Trump said he would build a country for everyone. He said: “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division. We have to get together.”

He added that he would work with people from all races, religions, backgrounds and beliefs who want and expect his government to serve the people.

He also reached out to the rest of the world, saying: “We will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. We will have great relationships.”

Other world leaders have sent messages to Trump. Russia’s President Putin sent a message to congratulate him. And British Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated Trump on his election as the next US president after a “hard-fought campaign”.

 Donald Trump’s term as president will be for four years. Then the American people can  vote for him again or elect someone new.

yes he is dangeras

tincan · 5 years ago

Yes i am worried because he will create hate between the Mexicans and he has also been very racist and sexist.
That is why i do not think that Donald Trump should be the president of the United States of America.

greninja7 · 5 years ago

Nobody likes Donald Trump...

hello123 · 5 years ago

Yeah, obviously

antman7 · 5 years ago

Donald Trump will destroy the America that Obama has created.

rafaruls · 5 years ago

I personally am not worried about the president-elect although i am Mexican-American living in London. I firmly believe that he will not be able to do anything major e.g. Building a wall or Banning Muslims ( or immigrants from Muslim/terrorist countries) I think that he will only be a major threat to the way the world will now see the US after having a Reality TV business star in their list as presidents. Since this, american will never be great again.

nadiak1906 · 5 years ago

even the creator of Papp (pen pineapple apple pen) hates him

nadiak1906 · 5 years ago

he's orange and evil

gscornmell · 5 years ago

Yes i'm pretty worried and although I live in the UK me and my friends discuss him everyday. It makes me sad to think there is people in the world who are so mean. I am only 10 but I am very serious about politics

Samaal · 5 years ago

Yeah, he is ruining America

gscornmell · 5 years ago

Donald trump's initials are DT which in my opinion stands for dangerous terror!!!

nbeausang · 5 years ago

Yes, Donald Trump will ruin America instead of 'making it great again.

popmoshi12 · 5 years ago

yes im soooooooooo scared

tinkle · 5 years ago

I voted no because Donald Trump has to much power and people think he got in to power because of his granddad. And it is basically Lord Sugar as a presided. Also he wants to banned muslims (it won't woke) and it is not fair imagine if I became presided and banned all the Cristian or all the Jews or all the blacks or all the whites or mixed rase if I banned one or the cultures would not be fair. So why does he gets the right to banned muslims?

65horses · 5 years ago

America don't know what they've let themselves in for.

23talacoe · 5 years ago

OMG!!!!!!!! i still can't believe it!
trump is a bad man and shouldn't be in control of anyone or any country! :(

wren · 5 years ago

I think people voted for him because they wanted change. I wonder what sort of change he will bring?!

hfrules · 5 years ago

I am not afraid because if he is dangerous I will always consider him to be a bad leader.
But we can't just assume that he is bad.
Maybe he might change.

dollstory · 5 years ago

I am totally worried because he is racist and sexist and he lies, + more reasons.

pratham25 · 5 years ago

He doesn't support climate action which is one of the global goals to be achieved and is scrapping a NASA station for money.

nv-92685 · 5 years ago

I don't trust Donald Trump! :(

piggy01 · 5 years ago

Donald Trump is ok for a president but in the past he has been raciest and sexist, causing a lot of americans not to vote for him. Hilary Clinton has been seen deleting impotent messages and she is said to have something hidden. personally, i would vote for hilary.

zachyf · 5 years ago

he is not fit to be USA president as he is only just a business man and is quite old and has no experiance.

pugglegirl · 5 years ago

We need to know that America voted for Trump because they believed he was the best for America. I personally think that Trump is right for them, because Hillary has a criminal record, and has been in jail

beatbox137 · 5 years ago

Yes. He could start another war so he could use his BILLIONS dolars for fun!

ginneapig4 · 5 years ago

Oh yes! Now, if you like Trump, do not read this rhythm I made up.
Donald trump is a tramp
Donald trump is a chump
Donald trump is not a champ
Donald trump should be down in the dump
Donald trump - THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!

gaggy116 · 5 years ago

he is racist, sexist and has no experience in politics. i think it is dangerous for someone like that to be in charge of a country as big and powerful as the USA.

firefox24 · 5 years ago

Trump is evil...

fred5feb · 5 years ago

He could start ww3

gobooks04 · 5 years ago

I am worried he will create a World War as he is such a racist, sexist person.

gobooks04 · 5 years ago

I agree antman7

purpletom · 5 years ago

I get worried because he is a dangerous man and is the following :raisist,sexist and probably not going to be the best president of America

reevolve · 5 years ago

Not only is Trump bad enough, but Vice President Elect Pence wants to spend taxpayer's money on conversion therapy for young people in the LGBT community. This is horrific.

espion23 · 5 years ago

Donald Trumpet=stupid

gracie777 · 5 years ago

who knows what he could do to the world

SunChip · 5 years ago

Before Trump can do anything, his ideas have to go through board. If he wants to set a law it has to go through the board. So if he has any crazy ideas at least the majority of the board will see this and can stop him. He can't do anything alone.

spy11 · 5 years ago

yes because this man doesnt know how to run a country

charliep06 · 5 years ago

how did he win??????????????????????

charliep06 · 5 years ago

fossof · 5 years ago

Donald Trump= He won't make america great again. What he means is make america white again. He will ruin the economy and possibly break out a civil war by his racist and sexist antics, then the americans will know what they've done and impeach him. Then Mike Pence will be president who is just as bad.

dh9 · 5 years ago

i think he will make America or even the world annoyed with him
because he is against loooooads if stuff like refugees

catonclan · 5 years ago

Donald Trump will not be a good president.

boo22 · 5 years ago

YES! the president of America is probably the most important person in the world ? ??

coolguy · 5 years ago

Trump is bad he's the worst ever president he wants no muslims to come in to America?

bluelion · 5 years ago

I am worried because he wants to build a wall so the Mexicans can't go to America. That is a very mean thing to do. He is a very dangerous man. America won't be a very good place with him as president. This still matters to us. We are part of the world. The Mexicans earn some respect from him more than anything else. Hillary Clinton should have been president. I am sure you will agree with me.

bluelion · 5 years ago

Trump is a trump /fart
He's an evil fart who will ruin the world
I am worried ??????????

Sparkle09 · 5 years ago

he's gonna start ww3 or something

happy4456 · 5 years ago

YES!!!!! Donald Trump is a racist man that is a spoilt and thinks that money is everything. He says he wants to make America great again, he only said that because he wanted to win the campaign and that's the only 'good' quote he could think of. He wants to build a great wall to keeps immigrants away (which i don't understand) as a MULTIPLE (yes, he had more than one!) of his wives are immigrants!
Personally, I despise the wicked man more than anything.

cordie · 5 years ago

I am worried because he may stop [ make it harder for] mexicans from seeing their family.
I would leave it for a while and see what he does.He has to go through a lot to make it happen though.

Magic10 · 5 years ago

I agree tIncan

kawaii101 · 5 years ago

YES! I think that Donald Trump will have to change his attitude towards things.(I don't think he ever will!) Being president of America is a HUGE responsibility and that only some one kind-hearted and who has an intelligent mind filled with many good plans for the future of the country will be able to stand as a leader of the USA. I think that the USA is a great place full of many wonderful people. But with some one like Trump as president its hard to tell what might happen. I think that Barack Obama is some one that people look up to and admire. Obama was a great president, I not sure about Trump though...

peregrine9 · 5 years ago

We have to deal with it weather we like it or not; he may be dangerous and the things he says are wrong but, in the long run, he's not that bad and he might make good choices (although he just annihilated a Syrian airbase- not a great choice but you know...there's still time.)

shpee · 5 years ago

He hasn't even been in office for 3 months and he's already on the verge of war, still can't get it through his head that climate change exists and can't even keep his promises about healthcare. I'd say that he isn't doing too well. Seriously, the only thing that has really been that good so far (that I know of) is bombing that airbase in response to the gas attack and then the bombing of the hospital, both of which being war crimes that were probably performed by the Syrian government. He's not doing very well so far.

EllaChou · 4 years ago

I hate him so much

Perpetua · 4 years ago

He will start world war 3

elliefn123 · 4 years ago

Yes because he hardly ever does what he says he's going to do. Donald trump just thinks of himself and not many other people. Only his supporters.?

elliefn123 · 4 years ago

He also wants to build a wall between America and Mexico and Donald trump is getting the Mexicans to pay for it. Which is unfair!

oceangirl · 4 years ago

Yes I am worried about Donald Trump becoming the president of America

ajmyles · 4 years ago

Nobody can read his mind

emperor · 4 years ago

Yes. He is a homophobe, a biphobe and a transphobe. He bans trans people from the army, which is appalling. He could potentially make everything in America bad.
In is inauguration he said,
'America First!' He may have said, 'America Worse!' Because that is the definition of his presidency.

He also says, 'we will make America great again.'
Is it not great now? When was it great? He means, lets step back into medieval age and discriminate people by their gender, colour and wealth!
