If someone lives in America, they are likely to know that Donald Trump is the new president of America. But even if they don’t live there, this could still be something that they are aware of.
What this comes down to is how connected people are in today’s world, and this is largely down to the internet. As soon as something takes place in another country, people from all over the world can hear about it.
It can then be as if there are no longer different countries, and that everyone lives in the same country. And, through being able to go online, it could be said that it is down to someone to decide how informed they want to be.
If they want to be ignorant about what is taking place in the world, they can be, but if they want to be informed about what is taking place this will also be an option. What this means is that one can not only be pleased/displeased about what is going on in their own country, they can have this experience when it comes to other countries.
So, regardless of where one lives in the world, they are likely to have something to say about the new president in the white house. On one hand, they could believe that he is the best person for the job.
In this case, they are going to be pleased about how the election ended, and they might be looking forward to what will happen. Along with this, some of the decisions he has already made might also please them.
The Other Extreme
On the other hand, they could still be in state of shock over the fact that it is Trump and not Hillary in the white house. Still, even if they are experiencing life in this way, it may have been possible for them to carry on with their life.
At the same time, what has happened could still consume their mind, and it could then be challenge for them to function as they usually would. One may then stay up to date with what he is doing, or they might do what they can to get away from it all.
In The Middle
And, while there will be people on each side of the spectrum, there will be people who are on the sidelines, so to speak. During the election, these people may have believed that both candidates were as bad as each other.
Now that this stage is over, and there is someone else in the white house, they could believe that the same problems are still going to exist. There is then going to be no reason for them to get caught up in what is taking place.
In addition to this, one could believe that they have their own part to play, and that an external figure is not going to change their life. Thus, no matter who is the president, it will be necessary for them to do what they can to change their circumstances.
And, if someone did vote for a candidate and they believe in playing their part, it will be easier for them to handle it if the person they voted for didn’t win. Yet, if the person they voted for did win, this could stop them from seeing the president as some kind of saviour.
When it comes to staying up to date with what president Trump is doing, it can be normal for someone to look towards the mainstream media. There is the chance that they looked towards this source during the election.
And, due to the position that he now holds, this source is going to spend a lot of time talking about him. In a way, it could be said that this is going to be no different to how it was before, and this is because this source spent a lot of time talking about him during the election.
Nevertheless, when the election was taking place, it was said that the mainstream media wasn’t interested in treating each candidate in the same way. And how this source did everything they could to get Hillary Clinton into the white house.
This could be hard to believe; especially if someone thinks that the mainstream media only exists to inform people. As a result of this, Hillary didn’t have to worry about this source of information presenting her in a negative light.
But if it wasn’t for the alternative media, it would have stopped a lot of people from finding out about the side of Hillary that the mainstream media didn’t present. One way of looking at it would be to say that this source of information did what the mainstream should have done.
And shortly after Trump won the election, the mainstream media carried on going in the same direction. So instead of opening up about the fact that they lied to people, they came up with the term ‘fake news’.
This was then a way for them to avoid taking responsibility for letting people down, and to try to discredit the sources that were informing people about what was actually taking place. It was clear that their power was on the wane, and this was a way to maintain their own existence.
And as based on how they responded after the election, it was clear to see that they were not going to change their ways. With this in mind, it could be said that even though the election is over, their agenda is still the same.
Therefore, if the mainstream media was only interested in getting Hillary elected during the election, why would they be interested in informing people about what Trump is actually doing now that he is president of America? It might be more accurate to say that they will continue to do everything they can to paint him in a negative light.
And regardless of whether someone likes him or not, it is going to be vital for them to find out about what he is doing as opposed to what the media says he is doing. If this is something that one agrees with, then it might be a good idea for them to look towards the alternative media.
