People all over the world were stunned to see Republican candidate Donald Trump beating Democrat’s Hillary Clinton by a massive margin to replace President Barrack Obama at the White House, last week. Predictions, pre-election surveys, misleading forecasts and a lot more things were proved wrong when 60 million Americans chose Trump over Hillary Clinton for their 45th President of the United States of America.

 

Who knew this would happen? Nobody! Only the Trump supporters would have dreamt about this. I would like to list a few reasons so as to how Trump defeated Hillary pretty easily as one might not believe it to be.

 

## Bernie Sanders would have been a much better choice for the Democratic as a Presidential candidate against Trump as the former could have beaten the latter hands-down.

 

## Democrats took the white-working class voters for granted or they did not need them to vote at all.

 

## Hillary Clinton is definitely a better choice than Trump but that was not good enough for the Americans.

 

## Not everyone who voted for Trump was sexists or racists (however, some of them were). They did not vote for Hillary Clinton not because she is a woman but she offered no palpable change.

 

## Celebrity endorsements did not help her cause much in this case. In a way, Trump, who was nowhere in the vicinity of mainstream American politics with minuscule of political acumen ends up being the 45th President of the United States of America.

 

## Media played a massive role in helping Trump to gain popularity in no time as well. As for example CNN almost played Trump’s speeches in its entirety. CNN president Jeff Zucker even admitted that it was not a great idea to put on to many of his campaign rallies unedited. In hindsight they probably should not have done that is what Zucker stated.

 

##Misuse of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others. Fake facts were circulated about Trump over a million times.
