Locals react to President-elect Donald trump


NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) –  It’s been almost one week since presidential candidate Donald trump won our nation’s presidential election.

From the moment trump took the stage on election night, there has been uproar in our country.

9 On Your Side wanted to know how you are reacting after such a historic week.

The younger generation like 17 year-old Abby Garman seems to think the hype is over.

“You’ve stopped pinching yourself kind of thing. They realized they can’t change it. No matter how much you riot no matter what you do that’s the outcome,” said Garman.

One older gentleman Ken Lumsdun said when the hype moves on is when trump will need to step up to the plate.

“He was fairly elected so he should be given the chance to be the president but a lot of people are going to be watching him,” Lumsdun explained. “”I think they’re unprepared and there are a lot of people that are going to be paying attention to see if the president elect behaves better than he did during the campaign.”

Others added it will be a hard task for one man to achieve peace and greatness with a divided country.
