Proving many poll pundits wrong on their face and giving a big jab on the popularity bubble of his primary rival Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, Republican nominee Donald Trump won the presidential poll to get elected as the 45th President of the United States.
Twitter, which was exploding anyway in the run-up to the poll, went berserk yet again with many taking to the medium to express their initial reactions. Various American celebrities shared their views and many Indians also chimed in.

The positive element from all this is that we can no longer pretend that we are free of racism & sexism. The question is, what do we do now?

I just want to remind everyone that we are looking at a very close race with a presidential candidate who was endorsed by the KKK.
