He talked about repealing the Not quite Affordable Care Act and replacing it with something else. I hope at the very least they come up with something that will help my wife's family be able to afford some kind of health care on St. Thomas that will benefit EVERYONE including the Islands. My healthcare jumped up an additional $160.00 started October 1st.

Unbelievable that there are so many ignorant people who voted for this vile, disgraceful, deplorable, despicable, disrespectful, misogynistic, misanthropic sycophantic, sexist, racist, xenophobic, pathologically lying, predatory, parasitic, ignoramus.

I'm truly sorry to all the cry baby's.
Don't worry Hillary is already reinventing herself as a middle leaning Democrat.
She is moving away from all the progressive freaks cuz they are bad for business. She can't live without that government dollar, she will be around in some form I'm sure.

At least he is an honest man.

I'm one of those deplorable's. What I can't believe is that there were so many people who could look their family in the eye or look in the mirror and cast a vote for a Lying, cheating crook. Yep, that is the shining example I want my grand children to see and admire. NOT! I'm proud of this country that finally looked past a glass ceiling to do what is best for this country, rather than anointing their queen in January.

Either way, you have to accept it whether you like it or love it. This is what I had to do when Obama got elected and I would have done had a lying cheating crook gotten elected.

And a triple play to boot with white house, senate and house, which is just what the Dems had back in 2008, which saw a worthless law passed like Obama care rammed down our throats. So lets see how the Repubs will use that nuclear option.

If you can't tell, I'm giddy as a school girl on prom night. Talk about karma. I love it. Happy Christmas and Merry Birthday to me.

Honest? Ha!
He's cheated on everything, paying his bills, his wives, workers, etc.
Sorry but I'm sickened by his win and saddened for our country.

So there is no ACA in the VI so what's all this about? We can take bets on whether or not the Trump replacement will offer anything for the VI.

Hopefully in 4 years Elisabeth Warren will run. I don't believe Hillary will, unless she is pardoned by our president on his way out.

Trump used the same laws that every other American is entitled to use (if you don't like that then change the law). It was proven that at least 3 of the 12 or 20 women that were trouted out by the Dems to be lying about their claims, which means most if not all were false as well (just like the Dems made up those affairs that the first woman Governor of South Carolina supposedly had, those were proven to be false and made up by dem staffers.

Trump never got any of the questions to any of the debates unlike cheating Hillary, who not only got the questions, but used them. This is a fact, not assumption. So come on, pick up your chin and suck it up for the next hopefully 8 years and see what happens, you might be surprised.

I think Dr. Ben Carson said it best.
"It's only 4 years. Give the man a chance. If you still don't like him after that, vote him out."
One of the greatest things about our form of government, is our re-election process (however ridiculous and outlandishly expensive it gets). When either party is in power for too long, extremism tends to take hold in both parties. Pressing the reset button every 8-12 years protects us all.
"Absolute power corrupts absolutely"
Beside the importants of health care, term limits on the Congress and Senate would be a step in the right direction (including the VI Senate).
God bless America

You are making decisions based on media spin.

As a landlord, if someone broke your lease and damaged your property, would you not sue to reclaim your money? Why can't Trump?

If you paid someone to fix your house and they did a substandard job, would you pay them the full amount? Why should Trump?

Look at each case for its' merit, not for the media spin from the left.

If you hired a licensed electrician to do a job, and it turns out he was not licensed and the job could not be certified by the state, would you pay him full journeyman wages? Why can't Trump?

And what they paid her is amazing. Almost as amazing as what she said to them, which is not the story she tells her supporters.

I also like Dr. Ben Carson. A Man like him would be a good choice for Secretary of Education. Our new President had some really good people going to bat for him and hopefully they can be a force for positive change. Actually maybe Dr. Ben Carson will choose to run again one day. Hopefully American will be in a place that someone like him would be supported by both liberals and conservatives.

A. The territory took ACA $ as Medicaid/Medical Assistance. There are many more people on Medical Assistance than there were 8 years ago.

B. Alana, I'm sorry you feel so bad. Now you know how half of the country felt after the last two elections.

For the record,I was glad not to have the vote this time.I could not have voted for either one. But the people have spoken, according to the rules set up by our founders, and there you have it. No gloating and no sulking...wink

And you're moving to central Florida. Good luck with that. You just described most of your new neighbors.

Say goodbye to environmental and wildlife protections, civil liberties and equal rights protections, alternative energy and so many other things and say hello to more corporate control, pollution, pipelines, fracking, rising prices and less available and affordable healthcare, destruction of our public lands, welcome the alt right, KKK, more gun violence, misogyny and racism, divisiveness and exclusionary attitudes. America the ugly.

We didn't do much better in the VI with our election.
Same old crap, different day.
Except we got the screeching shrew back to stuff her pockets as an added insult.

You can run but you just can't hide.

Can't wait for the disappointment to settle for the white boys who think they've regained control.

It's amazing how you can predict what he is going to do, yet could not predict that he would win.

And BTW, FL was able to BLOCK an unfair solar act. Yep, the red state voted against the big power companies. And the red state voted to legalize medical MJ.

I'll bet you didn't expect that from a conservative state.

The sky has not fallen.
And I believe the rotation of the planet has remained exactly the same as it was two days ago.

And last time I checked, even the stock market went up.
