Well done, America. I can report that we in Canada are feeling a little Austria, 1933 right now.

Tfw you're Canadian and you're a week away from submitting your visa application to move to the US. Ha. #ElectionNight

"How can a country go from voting for Obama twice to making Trump president?"

Es flipante que la diferencia en estados clave con 5 o 6 millones de votos sea de 2.000 o 5.000 papeletas. Y el ganador se lo lleva todo.

"It’s amazing that the difference in key states with 5 or 6 million votes is 2,000 or 5,000 ballots. And winner takes all."
