College Democrats and Republicans, affinity group members, and other University students expressed their opinions on the landmark election on Tuesday that saw Donald Trump voted in as the 45th President of the United States in a jaw-dropping election. Amanda Glatt ’19, president of the College Democrats, expressed devastation, fear, and shock at the election results. “My reaction is one... of disbelief that so many Americans are motivated by anger, uncertainty, and hatred,” Glatt said. Glatt said that she expected Hillary to beat Trump in a close race on faith that “optimism and hope for a better country would win out over fear and hatred.” Expressing resignation at the results, Glatt further noted that Trump’s election was part of a historical trend that matched similar expressions of fear across the world. “This is a fear not unique to the United States, but common across the world, as demonstrated by the rise of nationalistic, populist, anti-immigrant movements in Eastern Europe, for example, as well as Brexit,” she said.
