I mean yes, in this country we have the electoral college and the popular vote, but the presidency is won by the electoral vote (an issue with that process anyway) and Clinton so far (there are still votes outstanding) won the popular vote.
And even though Trump did win fair and square, the majority of the American voters did choose Clinton. Now for all the groaning that people are doing and for good reason, since we really don’t know what Trump is going to do and he can become a major disaster, plus the fact that it looks like he is going to fill his cabinet with status quo politicians (hardly a change when you think of it), to many people did not vote (which it BULLSHIT), others voted for losing third party candidates knowing full well that they would lose, so they just threw their vote away) in a ridiculous “protest vote”. I mean really, in an election where so much was at stake, you did some bullshit protest vote.
So if you did not vote or you voted for a third party candidate, knowing full well they would loose, YOU cannot complaint about Trump becoming our next, so hard to say, “President”. Just like folks in Jamaica who complain year after year about the do nothing and crooked elected officials, yet either do not come out to vote or vote for the same shit over and over because “your pastor” told you.
Anyway, Clinton did win the popular vote, so the majority of voters did not choose Trump and so in a sense the American people choose Clinton, not Trump.
