What a resounding victory it was, especially after he was severally written off by nearly every political pundit and their media allies, as the presidential candidate of a major political party that would be humiliated the worst at the polls. But a 290 electoral college votes plus a plurality of 60,100,000 popular votes is one heck of a mandate that he should govern as the peoples president, irrespective of whatever ruse the losing side might throw up. With such a mandate, the project "Make America Great Again" received much boost to its engines that it should roar into the stratosphere easily. Let us now try to examine and analyze how he did it; how a novitiate politician was able to pull the feat of winning the American presidency on a first try, despite the mountain of opposition that amassed to stop him. An opposition which stretched from the Democratic Party to his own platform Republican Party to various special interests from banking to industries to military to minorities to world leaders including the Vatican, as well as a crooked and very corrupt media that was heavily vested in achieving a Madam President Hillary Clinton's outcome. That Donald John Trump has cast a pall of mourning over a great swathe of these "Never Trumpers" is a fact which is still being felt throughout America and the world three days into his election as president of the United States of America on Tuesday November 8, 2016 .
First on the list is the candidate himself; his personality was attention-grabbing and American people were forced to focus on everything he did and/or said throughout the campaign season without let or ever being tired or bored. Simply put Donald Trump was magnetic and captivating to everyone, admitted for different reasons. His high energy, very untiring personality, passionate love for country, unwavering cheer-leading for country, his can do attitude and being the greatest champion of America captured the attention of American people and they responded in droves, gave him listening chance and this translated to his being today the president-elect of America. American people saw a fighter in him; a person they would like to follow because his cause was deep and he was unashamed being an American and puts America first. People admire leaders, people with great leadership quality so much that they are prepared to put up with whatever flaws such leaders might have provided they lead them to their desired destination where they will be safe and prosperous. Donald John Trump so qualified in the eyes of voting Americans and they responded by electing him their next president.
Following so close to the candidate was the candidate's message to Make America Great Again. Icheoku says this was the most far reaching political messaging of this century as there is nobody who could not or did not relate to the idea of improving what was. No one quarrels with making things better, especially when they would be made great again. The message was so powerful and so riveting that it stuck in the subconsciousness of Americans, such that every attempt by the opposition to dismiss or diminish it fell flat. In marketing, messaging is everything and Donald Trump successfully sold his candidacy to the American people and they responded in kind by authorizing him through their election mandate to Make America Great Again. In so many interviews Icheoku conducted, the message was what most people confessed gravitated them to the candidate Trump before they finally decided to cast their vote for him, regardless of the so many accusations and innuendos about him which ordinarily would have forced man less courageous candidate scampering away with their tails in between their legs to forever hide their faces in shame. But not the Donald and this his fighting spirit and ability to push back was indeed refreshing to people, admitted many of them would pretend otherwise publicly - the hidden Trump votes that were not captured by the crooked pollsters. His many other messages including Build that Wall and Mexico will pay for it also resonated with his core voters.
Icheoku says Donald John Trump also had the good fortune of having a very flawed and irreparably damaged opposition candidate to run against, admitted no other Republican primaries contender would have withstood the barrage mounted against him by the Clinton machine. It took his no retreat no surrender attitude to continue moving forward despite the volleys of attacks and allegations, many of them trumped up and manufactured but he stood his ground and his perseverance paid off. Several times, people expected him to run away but he proved them wrong and stood strong. Hillary Clinton belongs to the old order, an establishment interest which a change election wanted gone and so fast. Hillary Clinton told so many lies and the master brander Donald Trump captured this very succinctly when he branded Hillary Clinton crooked and it stood. Hillary Clinton deleted and bleach washed 33,000 emails and American people were perplexed as to why such amount of emails was possibly generated and why she deleted them and acid washed them if not that she was covering some crimes?
Then add to her stupendous wealth which she gathered post leaving the White House with her then president husband broke. People questioned how else if not proceeds of corruption. Hillary Clinton refused to release her Wall Street speeches too, telegraphing hiding somethings which she would rather American people not find out. Hillary Clinton is the most disliked feminist walking the grounds in America and people generally were tired of the Clintons, the Clinton fatigue and they wanted her gone and end the Clinton overbearing presence in American political sphere just like the similarly Trump retired Bush family. Then followed by Wikileaks revelations which reinforced peoples suspicion of her crookedness and massive corruption and which eventually sealed her fate of ever becoming the first female president of America. Icheoku says previously she lost to a nigger in 2008 and once again in 2016 she lost to a good ole white boy and with it, her dream of shattering the last ceiling marble once again became illusive, gone with her defeat by Donald Trump.
Icheoku says Hillary Clinton was indeed trying to climb a slippery mountain slope on a high heel shoes thinking to win a third straight term for the Democratic Party. Historically no party ever wins third successive terms in American politics, admitted one happened in the last seventy years when Ronald Reagan helped his then Vice President George Bush Sr win his one term presidency. Usually the country is tired after two terms of any party and ready to move on to something new and different; and unfortunately this was the time Hillary Clinton tried to achieve her life dream of becoming the first female president of America. To the American people, President Barack Obama's two terms are more than enough and continuing it was unacceptable to them and they decided to punt away to something new, different and more refreshing. That Hillary Clinton called American people names, disparaged many and weaved different baskets for them did not help her campaign for their hearts and minds either. Her irredeemable basket of deplorables comment was the gravest of them all and over 30 million deplorables responded in kind to stop her candidacy. Then add her crass feminism which threatened so many men that they sort of ganged up to curtail her excessive quest for power as they do not know what her objective was and how far she was prepared to will such wield. In short, the battle of the sexes played a big role in this election as America is still very much a macho society and would not want to have a woman telling them what to do.
Donald Trump also successfully read the mood of the country and figured out that immigration, economy, security and ISIS extremist threat were high on the people's concern and he milked it all the way to the presidency. He rehashed these themes and promised quick fixes for them and American people trust their faith in him and in his ability and promise to solve these problems and they gave him the mandate to solve these problems. Some of these problems have been there long before this election and people were waiting for that politician that will raise it and who indeed wants to solve it and Donald Trump came along and they flocked to him. Hopefully, he will not disappoint them and will be able to find solutions to them as quickly as he is sworn in. He also successfully rejigged his campaign team and so many times that the other side were mocking him as not being able to get his acts together and such frequent changes shows that he cannot run the government. But unbeknownst to them, only the Donald was insightful enough on the need to continue to rejig things until a winning campaign team emerged and the outcome shows exactly that - a man with great instincts to succeed and who can make decisions on a fly. Team Kellyanne Conway is highly appreciated for midwifing the Trump's presidency. The last shadow of a continuing FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton also raised further doubts in peoples mind, although it turned out of not having any effect in how people voted.
Lastly, the American Amish Community threw their weight behind Donald Trump during the last days of October and endorsed him for president. An act they usually do not do being apolitical and this endorsement resulted in his victory throughout the Ross Belt region of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin and Michigan as well as Florida and North Carolina - states in the country with high Amish population. They came home to Trump and voted for him massively to help elect him president. That American Evangelical Christians, Immigration and Border Patrol, Police, Sheriff and so many unions endorsed him also helped. In the end, he defeated Hillary Clinton to clinch the presidency despite being outspent in the campaign by Hillary Clinton $1.36 billion to his $800 million. Icheoku says history and political science scholars will continue to study the election campaign of Donald Trump in many years to come, trying to figure out what exactly worked for him while developing a political engineering modeled after his campaign. Possibly a Trump Political arithmetic or whatever they might chose to call it. But America and the world were thrilled and entertained and they are still in shock how he pulled it off. As for Hillary Clinton, this blow sure hurts more than Obama delivered to her in 2008 as she was felled by a loquacious candidate whom everybody counted out except for those of us deplorables and other members of Team MAGA and he delivered. Icheoku says congratulations President-elect Trump and may the Lord guide and protect you.
