Leaders and officials across the world reacted with shock, hope and congratulations, as Donald Trump confounded polls and surged to victory over Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential elections early on Wednesday morning.

“I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans,” Trump said in his victory speech.

Chinese President Xi Jinping phoned Trump to congratulate him on winning the U.S. presidency, state TV reported Wednesday. “I place great importance on the China-U.S. relationship, and look forward to working with you to uphold the principles of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation,” Jinping said, according to Fortune.

    Donald Trump….God’s wrecking ball in His Hand of Judgement….His Word thru His Prophets rings true!!
    “Behold I come quickly, giving to everyone his due reward”….
    Wake up and repent you leaders in every sphere of society in Dominica.

  3. To all of you ignorant Dominicans with your hoopla about Trump, the following is the state of mind of officials in certain States.

    The word is secession, California has the fifth largest economy in the World, and residence of California are petition for secession form the Union. Will it happen? If California goes so will Texas, and many more States.

    Ever think Trump may not have much to rule over?

    Republic Presidents have traditionally been more sympathetic to the Caribbean than their Democratic rivals… I expect President Elect Donald Trump will declare an AMNESTY soon FOR ALL ILLIEGAL IMMIGRANTS…. to get them regularized in order to enable them to legally live and work in the greatest place to live, work and enjoy life in the world… The USA :wink: :wink: :wink:

    Citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica have no place to state that this election is a sad day for them… IT IS OF NO SIGNIFICANCE TO EITHER LABOURITES or WORKERS. You are not Americans… Mind your own business in DOMINICA… Try to fix your problems in Dominica while we try to fix our problems in America… Thank you

    • I am Dominica....Are you?

      Most of them haven’t got the slightest idea of american politics anyway. For example a lot of them are anti gay and other alternate lifestyles yet they express support for the liberal candidate that makes it clear that one of her main aims is to advance the cause for “equality”, over the more conservative candidate

      Glad you realize there is a problem in America. Sad that you dont realize that this problem affects the enitre world.

      it is sad that you honestly believe that the decisions of a nation that has sway in world trade will not affect the Caribbean. we may not be Americans and who they choose to lead is not under our jurisdiction but the decisions their leaders make adversely affect us… so excuse the minority of us that see beyond silly politic’s and actually care of the disadvantages that may befall us should decisions that benefits the larger nations at the expense of the smaller nations (THE CARIBBEAN). stop looking at labour or workers and look and try to figure outhat how to make an actual contribution to your country besides your bias political criticism.

    • You are so stupid you do not even know when you are talking nonsense! In the first place there is no such thing as a “Republic President” in America; we have two dominant parties, the Republicans and the Democrats! Now tell me which individual Republican President you know who ever served in the history of America, and was ever sympathetic with you or anybody in the Caribbean?

      An if you believe Donald Trump will declare amnesty to keep your illegal Dominica-behind, here, you will be waiting for a long time that will never come! The other day when Skerrit dip his mouth, into advising Dominicans to go out and vote, I wrote my opinions on that, stating Skerrit should attend to electoral reform in Dominica before he meddles into American politics. DNO did not find it fit to release my comments. It seems to me that many of you Dominicans are more concern about what happens in America than the crap you take from Skerrit.

      If you were not an idiot you would not be appreciating…

    • If you were not an idiot you would not be appreciating Donald Trump, a bit of scum of the earth who hate Black People!

      Let me inform you one of the reasons more Americans voted for Trump, is because he vowed mass deportation of Illegal’s, and preventing black people and others from immigrating to America; you need to shut your mouth because you do not know what the heck is going on in America!

      Right now there are thousands of people across America demonstrating against Trump; they are not satisfied with the outcome. Blame The FBI which derailed Hillary path to the presidency.

      Finally DNO it is discovered that maybe you do not want any intellectual comment on your site, if that is the case perhaps my comments here will be censored, or not posted at all, If you prefer the garbage that most people submit on your site, no one can contest that, but remember when people are tired of reading garbage, they will quit. I have been in the Web Site Business for more than twenty…
