Last week on Tuesday 8th November the American people went to the polls and voted for Donald Trump to be their next President that has sent shockwaves across the world. In the same way, the political establishment did not see Brexit coming when the British people voted to leave the European Union, neither did they see Trump winning the keys to the White House.

Donald Trump’s triumph over his ultra-liberal rival for the White House Democrat Hilary Clinton was also not just a political victory but a political revolution. Trump’s campaign slogan of We Will make America Great again had such resonance with the American people because after eight years of President Obama they wanted their country back.
