America changed and the world changed yesterday .
Donald Trump’s election victory sent shock waves around the world and we don’t yet know the ramifications of America’s decision .
World stock markets are tumbling and world leaders are questioning the impact of what a Trump administration will mean .
Their concerns are well founded.
Trump has vowed to tear up existing trade agreements, without offering any alternative plan for economic stability.
He promised economic prosperity for America but he has no plan of how to achieve that goal.
His admiration for the dictatorial leaders of Russia and North Korea and his disdain for NATO allies raises legitimate questions about the role the United States will play on the world stage.
Trump’s victory speech last night was an exercise in oxymoronic rhetoric.
The guy who called Latinos murderers and rapists and vowed to deport millions of what he called illegal residents; the guy who vowed to ban Muslims from entering the United States was saying that it was time for America to come together.
The guy who built his base on hatred and division is not the guy who can heal the wounds that he himself has inflicted.
Angry American voters have made their choice, but sadly, the entire world will have to live with the consequences of that choice.
