Donald 'the almost duck' Trump was destined to win the American presidency whether you liked him or not. Despite the polls and despite the huge lead his opponent enjoyed leading into the final legs of the long, acrimonious presidential campaign
Because, there simply was no choice! Hillary Clinton was not someone you could trust with the long line of baggage she carried into the presidential race. Not that you could trust Trump, either.
In crazy times, you need a crazy person to lead - one who is not only a maverick but one also who does not care what the establishment expectations are or may be.
Now Trump has to make good on his words or else he will just fade away like all the past presidents who could only talk more than they ever could or were ever ready to deliver.
