 Mixed reactions from Emiratis flowed after Trump’s win. Ali H. Al Madfaei, an engineer, said he was not surprised that Hillary’s defeat has sent shockwaves across the world.
“In my opinion, one positive outcome of his winning the presidential race is that it sheds light on the issue of a two-party political system.”
“What we’ve witnessed is that only two parties, (Democratic and Republican), get to have their voices heard. The other parties, which may have had more fitting candidates, barely got any spotlight.”
“Hillary and Trump are clearly not the best choices that America has to offer, but this is due to the fault of the current system that is in place.”
He pointed out that Trump winning the US elections would mean that the electoral system would need “a restart button.”
“It was a disappointing election from start to finish. Trump’s defeat has basically exposed that this system is not the most efficient.”
“The US elections just proved that you can meme a man into the White House.”
Khalifa Al Shamsi, was also shocked by this year’s US elections. “I was hoping someone else would make it, not Hillary or Trump.”
“What can you say when you have two unfit candidates,” he added.
Khalifa Al Fahim, a senior systems analyst, said the elections certainly put doubts in the minds of voters.
“I guess Trump is the lesser of two evils, because at least with him we know what’s on his mind. What’s on Trump’s mind is usually on his tongue.”
“Hillary is a politician that no one can be too sure about. She usually says what people want to hear.”
“In the end Trump is a businessman and he might bring more business to America and its allies.”
