Ok so I don't agree with trump at all, but here is one of the reasons why an awful lot of people voted for him. There are towns and communities, especially in places like Ohio and Pennsylvania, where the mining communities have been destroyed by competitiveness from overseas. There are no jobs and peoples futures are bleak, their children futures. Some of these towns survive on these coal mines and steel manufacturing. Without them there are no jobs, no nothing.
Now they've had Obama for 8 years now. NOTHING has changed for them, there are less jobs everyday, they are still suffering. Along comes Hilary Clinton to carry on the 'Obama' legacy. She represents the status quo and for these people the status quo hasn't helped.
Along comes Donald Trump, presenting a complete alternative, he offered change. Now whether or not he can actually deliver that change remains to be seen obviously, but a lot of people were prepared to overlook his snide remarks and insults for change.
It's very easy just to think that, the only reason people voted for him was because of his remarks. But really it's so much more complex than that, and there are an awful lot of factors involved, why do you think so many Women voted for him?
