Opinion: How voters vote in other countries is up to them. The outcome of their elections affects them directly.
But the result can affect us all. When it is the USA and President elect Donald J Trump who knows what happens next.
A week after Trump won the Electoral College vote in the USA, but not the popular vote, a lot has happened.
He will not be inaugurated as President until January 20, 2017 but the transition from Pres.Obama to Pres. Trump has started.
Trump is a political unknown quantity
Former President Ronald Reagan was previously a 'B' movie actor but he had some political experience. "Ronald Reagan was the Governor of California for two terms, first in 1967 and then re-elected in 1971. He left office in 1975, declining to run for a third term. Robert Finch, Edwin Reinecke, and John L. Harmer served as lieutenant governors over the course of his governorship."
In June 2015 "Donald Trump was taught that money cannot buy the apprentice" and he was fired.
But he already had his eye on the White House.
He is now putting his "team" together and no matter how many times he sits in front of cameras, with his large family who appear to have been elected too, talking soothing platitudes his divisive, nasty and angry election campaign will never be forgotten.
He won the election but did he really want to?
Trump's campaign rhetoric has opened a Pandora's box of hate.
Those living in fear of a Trump presidency include women, the poor, the vulnerable, non-white Americans, the LGBT communities and more.
Claims that Trump is charming have no credibility. You cannot run a vile election campaign appearing as a bully, racist, bigot and misogynist unless that is who you are.
Senior Republicans did not want Trump but now they are trying to build bridges. In some cases it will be for the best reasons in other cases the worst.
Those who applaud a Trump presidency at this stage, including some on the left, as the vote was a rejection of the political establishment are wrong in my opinion.
Trump is fat-cat establishment through and through.
They were conned.
But like Farage in the UK he was able to tap into general dissent and use it to full advantage.
It was never about honesty.
The world is watching, but it is a fearful world
