Donald Trump Wins the same Way as Duterte

Donald Trump

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Donald Trump is now the President of the United States of America. Many Filipinos can relate on the way he won the presidential race. He has been declared the winner of the presidency and Secretary Hillary Clinton immediately congratulated him through a phone call. His tone has obviously changed now calling everyone to come together – but will this last, given that Duterte has gone through saying more bad words until at this very moment?

Lots of Hispanics Changed Mind at Last Minute

Hispanics and other voters who initially said that they are not for Donald Trump for president has changed their minds at last minute and ended up voting for him. What could have triggered the last minute decision?

Mexicans to Pay Taxes

What would the Mexicans do that they will be asked to pay for the boarder walls now? Will Trump push through with this campaign threat or will he be more diplomatic with the Mexicans for foreign relations sake? He did mentioned after the victory that he will see what other nations need first before making any actions. Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin did it.

Hatred Towards Hillary Clinton

It has been evident through the votes that there are really many Americans out there who hate Hillary Clinton. It’s not anymore a speculation. But do they really know what it means for them? America has decided and it’s not just Clinton. Nothing can be done about that but to go through Trump’s every step.

Americans are not Better than Filipinos

The trend in choosing a “different” president has escalated and even in America that many nations looked up to, they are not spared. Just because they are fed-up with the promises of previous governments, they end up voting for someone who is different but necessarily better. Filipinos initially thought that America can do better and Clinton would still win – but it seems like the Americans themselves have fallen into the trap. Good luck for unity because it’s not happening in the Philippines yet.

PM Resigned as British voted Brexit to be Poorer

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The division among British voters to leave or stay in the EU is even more escalated after BREXIT finally won. It was however easy to campaign on its withdrawal because majority thought that it was pure common sense – to not be responsible anymore by the plight of illegal migrants who have been bringing chaos to the country and worst, these unwanted foreigners became the beneficiaries of the taxpayers money.

However, the action of British Prime Minister David Cameron says it all. He does not want to be responsible of his people’s choice to be poorer. Come to think of it – when the U.K. got out of the laws and responsibilities of being under the European Union, they became alien as well from the usual international benefits that came with it – like the massive investments from European countries.

The division is even more visible among the “wanted” migrants. As the immigration sector is busy sending letters to legal migrants to leave the country immediately or the authorities will apprehend them, the medical, elderly and the hospitality industries are also in turmoil to find alternative personnel at the same wage level.

So, where’s the common sense then? Needless to say, the confusion might take many long years starting from the plunging of the pounds – but in time, the United Kingdom will definitely get things right. Perhaps by then, they can already weigh the pros and cons of being a part of a strong union – that include not only what they are gaining from it but also what they should give in return – where tolerance to the less privileged than them is highlighted that can be handled internally by a government that can be accountable.
