Washington reacts to Trump win

By  | 

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - America spoke and shocked many political insiders by electing Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan called Trumps win "this most incredible political feat I have seen in my lifetime."

Trump not only had a successful night winning a number of blue states, but Republicans kept a firm grasp in but the House and Senate. Now, the GOP must live up to the many promises leaders made during the campaign season.

"We're on the spot, we have to deliver," said David Avella, Chairman of GOPAC. "We have been given the mantle of leadership and republicans must lead. If we don’t deliver in the next 2 years a lot of republicans ae not going to be in office anymore."

The Supreme Court will also see some big changes. A conservative justice will likely replace Justice Antonin Scalia in quick confirmation hearings by a republican senate.

Hillary Clinton conceded Wednesday morning, calling the concession "painful."

The president also made remarks in the Rose Garden, saying that "it's no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences."

Still, President Obama promised to facilitate a peaceful transition of power just as President Bush did for him.
