Newly elected President of the United States Donald Trump has promised to make America great again.
In his victory speech delivered after his win, he told the American people that if they worked together they could rebuild their nation.
He said that if this was done then they could renew the American dream.
His winning coalition of largely white, working-class voters signaled their support not only by voting for him, but by their loud cheers during his victory speech.
Now, Trump faces the task of uniting a nation traumatized by the ugliest campaign in modern history and ripped apart by political divides exacerbated by his own explosive rhetoric — often along the most tender national fault lines such as race and gender.
Meanwhile….. News broke this morning that U.S Ambassador John L. Estrada has offered his resignation following the U.S. Presidential election.
Every time a new president is elected U.S. Ambassadors all over the world submit their resignation and this procedure will follow suit in light of the election victory by Donald Trump.
It is up to the new President? to either accept or reject these resignations. Estrada said he will submit his resignation, following long-established procedure.
For now, Estrada says he will remain the representative of President Barack Obama, the U.S. Government and the American people in Trinidad and Tobago and will continue to serve in that capacity until a decision is made.
Serving as U.S. Ambassador to the country of his birth, Estrada said it was an honor and a great opportunity to continue to build a strong relationship between the United States of America and Trinidad and Tobago.
